Remix of the Gregory J. Gordon track, Hold On
Pyramind founder Greg Gordon and alumnus, Sam Marston sit down and discuss their collaboration on Greg’s new EP release “Hold On”, now out and available on all major services on the Pyramind label, Epiphyte Records.
A graduate from Pyramind’s Complete Program, Sam explains how he re-voices and re-harmonizes the original version and uses his own Serum and Massive designed patches as well as sound design manipulation in creating his unique approach to this Remix.
About The Song and Video
Greg produced this song and the accompanying video as a message to young artists around the world in pursuit of their dreams. As a board member for the The IAMFORMUSIC non-profit foundation, Greg worked with founder and executive director Jerome Picot, to include the youth as the background singers and dancers in the video.
“Hold On” is a cry out for those feeling a sense of desperation in their pursuit of the “American Dream” and the rapidly changing face of our planet. “Hold On” is a cry for the 99% to band together and stand up against corporate greed, racism and the growing injustice of financial inequality. This video is dedicated to all the children of the world and in particular Greg’s daughter Trudie Rose Gordon whose shining light and relentless prodding saw him through to completion.
