When you think about 2PAC, the first thing that comes to mind isn’t going to be EDM, but after you check out AMIIGO’s remix of the late and great icon’s track you may start to find that changes.
Whilst the original track may have carried the perfect urban hype in the first place, it’s almost impossible to allude to how much AMIIGO actually added to the track with his inventive use of Groove and EDM swing. Considering the sentimentality behind the track, the added digitalised drops add the perfect amount of momentum to the feel-good vibe of the track, the gritty-in-contrast Trap beat which allows the lyrics to resonate deeper.
Hold on Be Strong is the first remix dropped by the Swedish up and coming producer, yet, it’s evident from one drop that AMIIGO has the deft digital command that most producers would die for. His ability to weave a Rap track into a Progressive Electro House is bordering on absolute genius.
