Man O To from the elusive producer NU has clocked up over two and a half million plays on youtube since its inclusion on Acid Pauli’s Get Lost Compilation in 2012. Now finally set to be released as a single on Crosstown Rebels, with Remix treatment coming from Parisian producer Pépé Bradock and Be Svendsen.
A nomad of modern times, NU has travelled the continents with his diverse music to unearth his imitable style. Represented heavily in Man O To, where instruments amalgamate with electronic production to become solid rhythms. An extra spark come from its lyrics, outtakes from an old Persian poem from the well known poet Rumi, who speaks of true happiness in love here performed by Ghazal Shakeri from an original recording made by renowned French composer Armand Amar.
Julien Auger aka Pépé Bradock is a widely respected producer best known for his anthemic releases on French label Kif Recordings which are still sampled heavily to this day. As a DJ, he has spun in almost every major club in the world and is known for his versatile, and mesmerising style. Bradock conjures a trippy remix of Man O To and fitting ode to the original.
Be Svendsen aka Lasse Bruhn Svendsen broke through into the international scene in 2014 with a series of productions and enchanting live performances at some of the most avant garde places to play on the earth, such as BOOM festival, Fusion, Burning Man, Symbiosis, Rainbow Serpent and AfrikaBurn. “‘Man O To’ is a track that has touched the hearts of many, including my own,’ Svendsen explained. ‘Being asked to add a new chapter to its story is both an honor and my greatest challenge to date.”
