Earlier in the year we had the pleasure of highlighting some recent productions from one of Norway’s emerging electronic artists, Bearson. Our interest was peaked upon hearing his remix of Franki Love’s ‘Make Love‘ original, and he has since kept us eagerly waiting for subsequent releases. Bearson has made another appearance, bringing us another emotive and stimulating electronic remix, this time of SOHN’s ‘Lessons’. The remix is up for grabs and if you’re in search of soothing, melodic electronic production with enlightening vocals, this remix is offering you just that and more.
