Danish production duo Svenstrup & Vendelboe (of this year’s ace ‘Dybt Vand’ fame) have remixed all of Medina’s greats. ‘Kun For Mig’, ‘Addiction’, ‘Vi To’, Gutter’, and ‘Ensom’ have all been fiddled with by the delectable duo in recent years. So it was with little surprise but lots of delight to learn that they’d again been drafted in to work their magic on her latest single, ‘For Altid’.
The original still evokes shivers of the spine, but this remix has some mighty musical merits all on its own too. It’s one of those remixes that stays true to the original, accentuating its best bits, and enhancing them with a bit of extended instrumental action. It’s also one of those mixes that builds and builds. It’s got a tantalisingly subdued first verse, before you get to hear the first bit of trance during the first chorus. Then the deep piano is introduced, your heart rate starts to increase, and then it basically becomes an all-out RAVE once the first chorus is over.
