A-Trak 'Running Man: Nike+ Original Run' - Out Today!
So it's finally been released today. For those not in the know, A-Trak was asked by the powers that be at Nike to compose a 45 minute mix to accompany runners for when they, erm....go running! It's the fourth release in the Nike+ Original Run Series.
Considered to be Trizzy's debut release, this composition consists of a warm up section, moving into an extended, uptempo middle section, eventually going downtempo for that necessary cooling down period. 'Say Woah', will serve as the main single, offered exclusively from Nike Sport Music.
I've just purchased the mix from iTunes, and have to say it's very dope. Everything is blended/mixed seamlessly, taking you on an Electronic/Hip Hop musical journey, and he's worked hard to get the pacing right too, creating the perfect soundtrack for your workout. Fools Gold's Kid Cudi provides guest vocals too.
A-Trizzy joins previous contributors The Crystal Method, LCD Soundsystem and Aesop Rock as part of the buildup to The Nike+ Human Race, which is planned for 1st August.
Check out the 3 minute sampler here. Fiyah!
