Erlend Øye – Rainman [Barck & Comixxx Remix]


There’s nothing more soothing than the velvet sound of Erlend Øye’s voice.  From his solo work to his collaborative work, Erlend Øye has been a major part of electronic music’s history over the last 15+ years.  His original work made him an Indie darling & his remixed tracks have made him electronic music icon.  “Versus”, the Kings of Convenience remix album from 2001, spawned a handful of classic remixes from Royksopp, Four Tet, Riton & various others.  Ewan Pearson’s remix of “Sudden Rush” (from Erlend’s first solo album) was a 2003 underground classic.  And Fred Falke’s remix of “Golden Cage” by Whitest Boy Alive is considered by many (myself included) to be one of the greatest remixes of all time.  In 2014, Erlend Øye released his second solo album, “Legao”, and this week saw the release of the album’s first official remix.  The track “Rainman” received the offical remix treatment from German DJs Alex Barck (a Jazzanova founding member) & Comixxx.  The remix follows suit with many of the aforementioned classic remixes of Erlend Øye, finding its beauty in the laid back subtlety of the music while allowing the always heavenly vocals to shine.

The remix is out now via Bubbles Records & available exclusively on Beatport.
