 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The beloved producer Brian Laruso delivers another  great diamond along with John James Renfrow. The track Holding Closer opens the latest Magic Island compilation and here it comes in its original extended mix. The track is truly magical with tribal bouncy grooves, pulsating deep bubbly basslines and excellent emotional piano melodies along with warm cinematic epic orchestral strings along with electronic synthy plucks. The vocals are simply outstanding with the combination of male and female voices bringing together incredible harmonies and even some tears in our eyes. Classy production that shines and guide you to your promised land. #PureGold Love It [/content]
