Breathing Secondhand Air (EP)

by Painted Romans



FLUX TRAX aka MAGNE HOVEN can certainly be called a veteran DJ, remixer, and composer within the realms of electronica, deep-house, techno and related genres. His music is "characterized by references from late 80's and 90's club house music with modern beat structures from Moombahton and Afro-House [plus] elements of Latin American music, found sounds and rhythm boxes from electronic organs."

'Breathing Secondhand Air' is perhaps one of the more popular Painted Romans songs, and it was an honour to have it remixed by Magne. In fact, HIS version is a personal favourite from the Painted-catalogue!

Also included here (but not distributed to the streaming services) are two more versions of the song. One is an extended version that includes the original, though until now, unreleased intro. The second is a slightly different version produced especially for the local "3 Nights Live" following the release of the album 'Evil Wigs and Bedroom Moments' in 2008.

You will also find the original version included in the compilation album 'Dirt Wages/Slight Hipness' (look in the discography).
