In this case, the genre icon has remixed “‘Farmacia (Homage to Frankfurt)” by Danish story Kenneth Bager, jacking up the BPM, adding a more difficult kick drum and reworking the more ambient long-established into exactly what we would want to listen to around 4 a.m. at Burning Man, if next month we had been going there rather then nowhere at all.
