[Download] Air France vs. Saint Etienne – Spring

Air France

In conjunction with the release of Foxbase Beta (Richard X’s fantastic re-working of Saint Etienne’s legendary 1992 debut Foxbase Alpha), Heavenly Records have also released a limited edition 12″ entitled the Foxbase Beta EP which features an extended mix of ‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’. The main event on the EP though is the remix of ‘Spring’ by Gothenburg based production duo and friends of TLOBF: Air France.

Never to shy away from their love for Etienne, with the sound and influence of the seminal London trio strewn across AF’s recordings and infamous DJ sets, Joel and Henrik were asked to remix ‘Spring’ after Saint Etienne personally invited them to DJ for them at their Bloomsbury Ballroom shows back in May. What they came up with can only be described as a balearic masterpiece, which is why we’re thrilled to be able to offer the track exclusively on TLOBF. The only catch – you can only grab it for the next 48 hours… so act fast before you miss out! The mp3 has now been removed from our server… Told you to act fast! You can still stream the song in full below, though.

I got in touch with Joel and Henrik earlier today to ask them what the original song meant to them. Their response: “This is the answer to our prayers. ‘Spring’ is the song we fucked to when we were eleven and took rohypnol raw”.

Thanks chaps.

Air France are currently holed up in their Gothenburg studio recording the follow up to last years triumphant No Way Down EP.
