Junior Byron – Trying To Hold On

Most are familiar with Junior Byron’s brilliant 1983 single “Dance to the Music”, but few are well acquainted with the boogie/reggae fusionist’s ’85 jam “Trying to Hold On”.

Helpfully, Cultures of Soul has decided to reissue it for the first time, accompanying the original vocal version – a super-sweet, spaced-out synth-boogie workout complete with a thrillingly soulful and sun-kissed reggae vocal from the effervescent Byron – and stripped back “Version” (intergalactic boogie-dub of the highest order) with a fresh rework from Gerd Janson. The Running Back chief combines elements of both versions, adding more dub effects and emphasizing Byron’s brilliant vocal in all the right places.
