Download Deadboy's garage-friendly reworking of Coldcut and Lisa Stansfield's 'People Hold On'

The South London-producer nudges a diva-house classic up the timeline.

Coldcut’s ‘People Hold On’, featuring singer Lisa Stansfield, is a pitch-perfect slice of late 80s utopian house. In fact, it even appeared in FACT’s list of 21 diva-house belters that still sound incredible, a piece inspired by Disclosure’s collaboration with Mary J. Blige.

But while Mary J’s version of ‘F For You’ might be a little too pristine for some, Deadboy’s ‘Lisa’ — a reworking of ‘People Hold On’ — is sultry and seductive as it toys with garage, bassline and club conventions.

Download ‘Lisa’ below. Deadboy returned to Numbers earlier this year and recently spoke with FACT TV about his favorite record.
