“Following on from their recent collaboration with fellow Mancunians Stay+, NO CEREMONY/// return with a new track, HOLDONME available from www.noceremony.com as a free download. The track is complemented by a video featuring edited, treated footage taken from 50’s American anti-drug film, ‘A Day in the Death of Donny B’”
Allan Struthers: I love No ceremony.
Sam Green: It's a very similar start to Hold on by SBTRKT, then the vocal changes all that. I really love the little vocal cuts and glitches. Such a beautiful voice as well. The production is spot on, everything comes through perfectly. Love it. 5 Beards.
Darkwulf: No even high powered Eccies could make this groovy. Secret about dance music is making it in a way so folk can dance to it. It was like making out with your distant cousin with big baps - awkward ...you don't want to be there and you know getting blow jobs is better with better girls, the ones you're not related to. Never went anywhere either, went up its own stupid arse. Zero.
Lizzie Banoffee: Nice intro. I like the glitchy bits. I'm not sure what the vocoder effect on the vox is doing for me though, but I like the overall ambience of the track. Nice brain tingles. I like where the distorty synth comes in around 3.10. But other than that it doesn't do very much, but is generally quite nice. Lyrics are total nonsense however. 3.5 Beards. PS I agree with the production, it's mint.
Allan Struthers: Yeah, really well produced, but it could have done with a bit more force behind it. That said, it was still totally enjoyable. 4 beards.
Darren Bibby: I didn't like it as much as their previous release. I love the bass sound, but not keen on the vocal effect personally; I'd prefer it cleaner I think. Just sounded like a passable deep house tune that chugs along. 3 beards
Lee Chapman: Wonderful progression that carries you with every subtle change. Agreed on the vocal changes. Not too messy. For me, I felt that the kick drum had a bit too much flap on it for the type of song that it was. It could have been tighter. Enjoyable to sit through. Would love to hear the track before and after too to see how they run together. It feels like that sort of track. 4 beards.
