Italian-Moroccan producer Kharfi entered the industry dabbling in downtempo experimental releases, but since found his niche pop-house sound with bouncy bass and strong lyricism. Kicking off his independent artist career at the end of 2020 and releasing his second EP “24” on his 24th birthday at the beginning of 2021, Kharfi is considered nothing close to a novice.
Following the release of his latest track “Breathing,” emerging producer Kharfi emerges with encouraging new single “Hold Back My Heart” featuring Mercedes. Out now, this bubbly progressive house tune is brimming with promising cadence, melodic piano synths and boogie-inducing beats. “Hold Back My Heart” is the fourth song to be released off Kharfi’s debut album, AQUARIUM arriving in January 2022.
Composed of delicate chord progressions and captivating claps, “Hold Back My Heart” exemplifies Kharfi’s signature addicting sound by harrowing in on his crisp sound design and ambient breakdowns. Fervent chorus is supported by steady drums, picking-up the pace by introducing spirited synths and funky vocal chops. Submerging listeners in a serotonin induced state with prosperous vocals and a pulsating baseline, “Hold Back My Heart” is a certified pick-me-up.
