Enroute to what looks to be one of their busiest summers on record, sisterly Aussie duo Nervo sees latest solo offering “Hold On” receive its first run of remixes from a mixed bag of eclectic club assets. Led with the punchy peak time resonance we have come to expect from Angger Dimas, the other side of the coin is filled considerably well by French heavyweight Fred Falke, whose warm and melodic knack for modern electronica proves an immediate highlight to the package. With Loudpvck extending the original to a tainted canvas of trap beats and high-end leads, Nervo’s universal appeal is tested with considerable force courtesy of this promising package picked from across global club land.

As Nervo’s latest single “Hold On” continues to hold its own on the airwaves, its remixes are revealing themselves before their May 7th release. Fred Falke was first to transform the tune and now Angger Dimas has thrown his hat into the ring with a decidedly more aggressive effort. Leading off with an electro riff that blurs into watery chords tucked behind the twins’ breathy vocals, any sweetness from the original is abandoned with a sharp drop. Though the preview is just two minutes, it’s punchy n0-holds-barred break leaves Dimas’ “electroboss” label spot on.Posted by

One of the champions of the French house sound, Fred Falke, takes on Nervo’s latest original “Hold On” injecting the mix with a hearty dose of glowing synthesis. Known for his beautifully composed productions, Falke was previously responsible for our favorite remix of Nero’s “Reaching Out” and the talented Frenchman approaches “Hold On” with similar poise and sophistication. Delicately reworking the original with buzzing lo-fi synthwork and charming melodies, Falke transforms Liv and Mim’s original into a silky smooth outing suitable for mellow afternoons and summer sunsets.Posted by
As Sultan & Ned Shepard and Nervo’s “Army” continues to conquer dance floors both large and small, two new versions have joined in the battle. Israel’s young Dean Cohen and LA’s Bass King and X-Vertigo were enlisted for remixes, each putting a fresh spin on the anthem. Cohen ratcheted up Omarion’s vocal with a heavy dose of electro while the California team took it to a more progressive, pop place. With both efforts increasing the track’s staying power, the remixes will be released April 22 through Strictly Rhythm.Posted by

Mim and Liv gave their Ultra Music Festival main stage crowd three premieres last month, one of which they announced would be released in the coming weeks . After a proper debut, Nervo‘s latest effort has hit the release circuit — but it won’t stop there. “Hold On” is one of the duo’s most heart-felt tracks measured by its vocals, and one of their biggest measured by its climax. More subtle than previous offerings, their latest grows on ears and feet only moments in. As promised, the Aussies bring forth their latest just in time for festival season courtesy of Astralwerks.
