AVEC’s ‘Waiting For’ gets remixed by HOUT


Writing music is how 22-year old vocalist and musician AVEC keeps the wolf from her door – often reflecting on personal life experiences and weaving her life’s narrative.

Her lyrics are the key component to writing music, and language is a place of retreat – which leaves additional room for interpretation, inspired by the likes of Bon Iver, John Mayer, The Lumineers, Oscar and the Wolf, Kings of Leon, Daughter, RYX, she succeeds in creating her own language, where her imagination and ideas come together in her music.  AVEC’s sound is comparable to the magical atmosphere just before the sun sets behind the mountains. It is melancholic but hopeful: the sun will rise again tomorrow.

She has unveiled impeccable remixes of ‘Waiting For’ set for release on November 16th via earcandy recordings, including remixes by electronic producers Alex Schulz, HOUT and Nora Medin. German electronica duo HOUT have produced a groove-fueled remix for ‘Waiting For’, the latest project of Norwood & Hills’ Leon Krupka and Lennart Seitz, who have racked up over 2 million Youtube views and released material on Toolroom, Cr2, Armada Deep, Natura Viva and Bunny Tiger.  For us HOUT takes the original and gives it a real original Deep House vibe from the early 00’s, achingly cool and warm.

HOUT says about the remix “When we first heard AVEC’s song ‘Granny’ a bit over a year ago, we immediately fell in love with her voice and the way she sings. After playing it up and down on Spotify for a while, we decided to reach out to her on Facebook and ask if they have a track we could remix. They sent us their song ‘Waiting For’ which we thought was absolutely beautiful, the voice, the lyrics and everything around it. We immediately got ideas on how it should sound, so when we remixed the song, we wanted to preserve the quietness and calmness of the track, but still make it work in an afterhour set.”

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
