Slackin Beats – Holding Up (feat. Need For Speed)Slackin Beats
is the moniker of electronic musician Elvis Suljevic from Malmö, Sweden. He describes his sound as focusing on "electronic, experimental and melancholic soundscapes". On the excellent Holding Up
this cinematic melancholy is combined with a four-to-the-floor beat creating a sense of movement and making the song perfect for late night trips. The track is a collaboration with fellow 80s-inspired outfit Need For Speed

: "I've been working with Felix and Martin (Need For Speed) for about a year now. With this track we wanted to create a moody, melancholic track that blends our different styles and genres together. Because me and Martin share the same studio it's really easy for us to share different ideas and just talk about our process.
We created this track in both FL Studio and Ableton. Felix sent me the idea of the first draft in Ableton, that I absolutely loved. After that I finished the track in FL Studio and made the structure, mixed it, added synths, vocals etc."
