“One of Roger S’s finest productions in my opinion. By far considered an early 90s anthemic classic. This song captures the true essence of the sound of Shelter NYC with Timmy Regisford and Merlin Bob in the early days. The mix of Micheal’s wailing message and the heavy bass-driven track conjures up magic on the dance floor. This song is the purest example of what soulful dance floor music is about. Upon my first visit to the Shelter back in 91’ this is one of the many songs that encapsulated the night for me. Watching the dancer act out each vibration of the song and the sound system acting as an ethereal machine. A classic!”

This is a great cd release with the inclusion of "Underground Solution Mix"
One of my all time favourite versions of "Holdin' On" And probably Roger Sanchez at his very best at this time. Co-Produced by Smack Productions along with Roger S. The "Nu Mix" is similar to the "Shelter Mix" but without the mastering issue that dogged that mix. "East West Dub" is a great dj tool. Very useful if you're interested mixing 2 versions of the track?

I searched for this diamond for years...Roger Sanchez has sinced cheezed out but his past will always shine brighter..This is a deep house vocal anthem..Michael Watford was at his peak and Roger was hitting homers...the original Shelter Mix is the King!! I remember the walls dripping of sweat , and the ladies working the floor, i remember big blunts and dirty warehouses..but mostly i remember waking up the next afternoon with this classic anthem still ringing in my ears!if you see this , snatch it fast, put on a bullet proof vest and get your ass home, cause if some other mother fucker sees ya with it, he's liable to shoot ya down for it!!!PABLOSLIMS
