Ever get the sneaking suspicion that Brenmar's sound is really just an update of classic Latin house? Such thoughts might have more weight than you'd think, as the Brooklyn-based DJ has just released a remix of Ralphi Rosario's 1987 classic, "You Used To Hold Me." Yet, while the original record was emblematic of the sparse vibe characteristic of house music in the '80s, Brenmar's remix pushes the song towards the more spastic sound of the present. "You Used 2 Hold Me (Brenmar Remix)" flips the track from druggy, freestyle-leaning house into hypnotic (and druggy) hi-NRG, complete with arpeggiated bassline, dubbed-out synth stabs, and a straightforward four-on-the-floor.
