In celebration of A-Trak’s debut release Running Man: Nike+ Original Run being released this past Tuesday, check out his single Say Woah

The music on Running Man: Nike+ Original Run – a mix of electro and hip-hop – is ideal for a workout, but could certainly find popularity in clubland with its synth-heavy loops, deep bass, and thumping beats. A new approach to producing music, constructing the record around a long track for running, offered a unique challenge for A-Trak: “Making a 45-minute piece was interesting in terms of arrangement,” he says. “Here, a guy is running and it’s all about pacing. You want to keep him in the zone, you want to keep his attention, but at the same time there’s much more room to spread out than on a record I might produce for a club.”

The original mix is part of the run-up to The Nike+ Human Race, the world’s largest one-day running event. On August 31, 2008, an expected one million runners in 25 cities across the globe will partake in a 10k that combines the power of running and music through sport and also gives participants the chance to run for a cause and support charities who have a positive impact on the world. At 45 minutes long, Running Man: Nike+ Original Run is ideal background music for runners looking to mix things up while training for the event.

The fourth installment of the Nike+ Original Run series, A-Trak’s Running Man: Nike+ Original Run is available exclusively in the Nike Sport Music section of the iTunes Store for $9.99.
