AllMusic Review by

Though Hold Up's cover and inside art give the impression that the Superfunk production team is from Chicago, Superfunk is actually a trio from France. Given Chicago's essential history in house music, Superfunk's Windy City obsession is understood. However, rather than emulate Chicago house legends like Derrick Carter and Paul Johnson, Superfunk seems more attuned to the commercial likes of Frenchman Alex Gopher. The CD does have a few gems that touch loosely on the Chicago sound, including the track "Lucky Star" with its noticeable debut from singer Ron Carroll. If Superfunk would stop trying so hard to be something it isn't, and would let its music classify itself instead, the trio could be the next Daft Punk.
