Be Svendsen’s ‘Man On The Run’ receives the Austrian treatment by Richard Dorfmeister & Stefan Obermaier, two masters well-acquainted with the art of the remix.
The pair put a bulky spin to Svendsen’s misty escape saga. The melody and vocal arcs are doused in thick synth and bass layers that pound away in the heaviest of downtempo funk rhythms. The result is a harmonically minimal but texturally rich full-bodied dancefloor chugger.
Be Svendsen, the Danish tech-no-mad has a go himself with a new version and steers the track into a sense of opiated psychedelia, drifting coolly, eyes wide and limbs relaxed.
