Extreme! The Red Bull generation is coming into its own — and dubstep seems to be its soundtrack. Now, I’m a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to sports, but not so much when it comes to music. You could say the same about Johannes Bürmann.
A graduate of musicology at Germany’s University of Giessen he has released outstanding remixes and originals under the names Brand Blank and Burman –notably “Take Me Away,” posted below.
Bürmann is in fine form on his cutting-edge remix of Bob Marley‘s “Sun Is Shining.” While that track deserves attention on its own, what really makes it worthy of a post is the amazing video below, which uses it as the soundtrack to footage of extreme athlete Jokke Sommer in his wingsuit, flying through some of the gnarliest places in the world. The images and sound together are truly inspiring. Enjizzoy!
