Premiere: Margaux Avril – Drifting (Vanna Remix)

Margaux Avril

After releasing her 2013 debut album, Instantanés, French-American pop singer/songwriter/artist Margaux Avril (a.k.a. Margaux de Fouchier) made a welcome return at the end of 2016 with her emotive offering “Soon.”

In April the multi-hyphenate dropped “Drifting,” a pop gem crafted along with Dennis Brown of Postaal, French electro producer Fhin and house music stalwart Alex Gopher on mastering.

“Drifting” has now been placed in the capable hands of Paris-based Vanna (a.k.a. Supa! Never Smiles), whose CV includes winning the French Red Bull Threestyle Champion in 2011 and playing Paris clubs including Rex Club, Social Club, Yard and Colette parties. His remix ably bridges hip-hop, pop and electronic.

We’re thrilled to world premiere the remix of “Drifting,” which maintains the somber je nes se qua of the original version.

Says Vanna of the re-rub, “The idea was to gather the best of both worlds, electro and pop with gentleness and lightness. I wanted to enhance the melancholic side of the original track and to make it timeless.”

Margaux is 100 percent onboard with Vanna’s interpretation: “Mysterious, addictive and solar, Vanna’s remix breaks everything you’d know about the original song but still respects its ambiguous mood and makes you want to have a drink under the sun.”
