The long-awaited Ben Böhmer remix of ‘Red Dressed‘ is finally here. This track’s sky-high debut on a hot air balloon in Turkey racked up nearly 5 million views on YouTube. Fans searched online to try and find the new Ben Böhmer music they’d just heard, but it wasn’t to be found until now. Hungry Music, the label founded by Worakls, is releasing this beautiful Worakls remix featuring Eivør. It’s the home of the original track but also of the 2019 Worakls album ‘Orchestra’. He’s known for his sublime blend of electronic and orchestral music. He composes then captures intimate performances and sets them masterfully to a beat. Faroese singer Eivør, on the other hand, has given her voice to a huge range of genres from folk to jazz. Meanwhile, Ben Böhmer was dubbed ‘breakthrough artist of 2020’, by Techno legend Boris Brejcha. This track is truly a potent combination of talents.
The Ben Böhmer remix of Red Dressed (feat. Eivør) starts in suspense. The opening gambit of kicks, claps and delays could take us anywhere. Some tentative synth plucks indicate a Progressive House direction. But then, the unmistakable fingerprint of a Worakls remix soars high above the mix. Then, not long after, you hear the barely-discernible voice of Eivør, skewed and tormented by musical machinery. The two embark on a mesmerizing rally of call and response, meanwhile, the kick drum finds its power and holds down a beat. By this point, the Ben Böhmer remix is definitely underway and it’s completely enchanting.
This Worakls remix manages to preserve the otherworldly quality of the original. Layers upon layers of vocals, strings and effects take your mind elsewhere. They build to a crescendo and then, the track drops and takes you somewhere else completely. This interpretation of the original finds enough energy for a crowded dance floor. But it also has enough depth and nuance for solo listening. This is a big release for Hungry music and for all three artists involved. We look forward to hearing more from all of them, as soon as possible!
