premiere : avec sans “hold on” (remix)

The reeeeeeeeeemixxxxx…

by Josh Madden

Alice Fox and Jack St. James, better known as Avec Sans, are a London-based duo whose music landed on the internet just year ago and have since scored a spot top 10 LISTS, bloggers' favorites tracks, and have even been creeping onto BBC radio and XFM. The two literally put their first track on line and hours later had e-mails in their in box offering gigs (that's beyond rare). The perfect sonic pairing of Avec Sans is obvious in their sound and is probably due to the fact that they met repeatedly at gigs, and as a duo they're their the total package. When they hit us up with a first listen of this "Hold On" remix, we were beyond stoked and asked if we could have the premiere. We like the original but hey, it's Monday and the punched up remix has the energy we need right now. St. James' chopping of Fox's vocals coupled with a driving bass line and the new drum arrangement are perfect. Listen and download both versions below and check out more on Avec Sans HERE. We're looking forward to seeing and hearing a lot more from this sonic powerhouse.
