BV (formerly known as Black Vanilla) have taken on a remix of ‘Hold’ by folk-turned-electronic artist Vera Blue.
BV – made up of Lips, Lockheart & DJ Plead, aka Marcus Whale, Lavurn Lee & Jarred Beeler – initially intended to be a live music project only, but thankfully they discarded that decision with the release of Black on Black on Black – their 2013 mixtape full of distinctive dance beats. Since then, the trio have been keeping dancefloors sweaty all over Sydney with their notoriously intense and inclusive live sets.
This new remix sees Vera Blue’s voice soaring over the characteristic throbbing that BV tracks are known for. With BV’s intense burning of suspense amid a driving force, the lifting and expressive vocals blend beautifully into an ideal dance floor track.
The remix premiered yesterday on Arvos with Dom O’Connor, stream the track below.
