Running features a bouncy, sophisticated beat marked with glistening synths and polished guitar chords, and the track is highlighted by super smooth, Michael Jackson-esque vocals from Belgian singer Gustaph. As Blende’s third original release on Eskimo, Running solidifies the Swedish producer’s ability to craft music that perfectly combines maturity and funk.
Released as part of a three-track EP, Blende’s original is accompanied by two remixes, the first from Dutch trio Kraak & Smaak. The versatile producers remove the original’s energetic beat, replacing it with a deep house melody heavy with rolling bass. The second spin comes from Knight One, who mellows out the track with a groovy, piano-laden melody.
