Blende feat. Gustaph – “Running (Kraak & Smaak Remix)”
We still remember the first time we stumbled across the delectable soundscapes of Blende back when he released “Fake Love” and to this day that track still makes an appearance on our party playlists. He has a keen ear for lush, retro-tinged disco grooves that stand the test of time. His latest EP is titled “Running” and it dropped last week with two remixes from Kraak & Smaak and Knight One. Besides the prime slab of remixes, the track also features familiar vocal aid from Hercules & Love Affair’s Gustaph!
There is one track off the EP in particular that has been running through our minds all week. The culprits of this stirring remix are none-other-than Dutch duo Kraak & Smaak. They alter the original disco groove and drag it into deeper, emotive house territory. The pad work and cosmic synths in their rendition give the track a beautifully ethereal touch that reads as a late night anthem. Even Gustaph’s vocals stand out more with the way they are positioned throughout the track. Kraak & Smaak really churned out a banger here. A warm, hypnotic, deep, textured, lush and emotive remix is waiting for you below. Enjoy.
