Abandon Silence are proud to present a special double bill as two of the UK's hottest artists head to The Hold. 2011 was the year of Mosca, from his early releases to the inescapable Bax, played by artist as diverse as Seth Troxler, Skream and James Blake. To quote Fact, who placed the track at number 2 in their 2011 countdown; "Suave as you like, it blew up any dancefloor it came near and reminded us why we fell in love with UK club music in the first place."
