The brand new single for Sydney’s DJ Minx officially arrives at your favourite digital retailer this Friday, but she’s not letting the occasion go by without giving us a little sneak peek at the track before it drops.
‘Hold On’ is a rather impressive collaboration with Triple J Unearthed songstress Hannah Joy, who penned the track, but the track’s been given a fresh re-working by Minx, who tells us how it came about.
“The track was stumbled across by Mark Holland (A&R at EMI). He heard it & thought it could become a great collaboration project for me and of course Hannah if she was up for it,” she says.
“I heard the track and loved it, so Mark got in touch with Hannah and it all moved pretty quickly from there! It was then straight into the studio with my production buddy Chris Arnott, to tweak it with a new Minxy vibe. I really wanted to steer away from the big main room sound I’m normally known for and come out of the studio with a house gem… Back to my roots in a way I guess.”
Take a listen below. And JUST in case you’re interested in what the original sounds like, you can have a little listen of that HERE.
