Bailey believes Hold That Down flaunts an authentic British influence, stating: “We thought the production had various similarities to UK grime, which we were listening to lots at the time, along with conveniently coming across Skatta’s music. I reached out, he enjoyed the record, sent me his verse back within the next few days and the rest was history.”
The track boasts a minimalist production approach, courtesy of Nookie Beats who cooked up a real atmospheric sound for Bailey and Skatta to waltz all over – which is exactly what they do:
