Today marks the initial release of Kraddy
's Anthems of the Hero remix anthology. The first track in the collection, brought to you exclusively by The Untz.com
, is a re-fix of the sexy collaboration between the album's innovative creator, Matthew Kratz, and unparalleled songbird Erica Dee. Remix artist Christian Bauhofer, better known as Minnesota
, preserves Ms. Dee's tempestuous voice as well as the cut's incredibly catchy opening guitar riff.
Although the tempo is increased significantly, Bauhofer manages to produce a tranquil soundscape by crafting smooth synth lines and liquid drum rolls while simultaneously delivering a danceable beat. He even kicks it into a luxurious semi-drumstep breakdown caked in Dee's siren song. We've been saying it for a while, but Minnesota keeps creeping up the EDM ladder thanks to output like this. Genius move on Kraddy's part to tap a brilliant young producer like Bauhofer to kick off this comp. We'll have another gem for you in 2 short weeks...
