Favorite ThisKraddy - Forbidden (Minnesota Remix)

Published: February 1, 2012

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, 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...
