Earlier this year Norwegian duo Röyksopp released ‘Running To The Sea’ alongside fellow Norwegian vocalist Susanne Sundfør. According to the band, the song was written and recorded in just two days for a special TV performance.
It’s not the first time the duo has collaborated with Susanne Sundfør, though, as they also created a cover version of Depeche Mode’s ‘Ice Machine’ for the duo’s excellent Late Night Tales compilation.
Well, ‘Running To The Sea’ is now getting a remixes package with our favourite Belgian duo (apart from 2 Many DJ’s, of course) Villa on hand to remix the song.
Villa’s remixing credentials are as good as they get, and unsurprising they don’t run rough-shot over the remix instead turning what was a piece of enchanting pop into a swirling piece of down-tempo disco. They also manage capture the majesty of the original’s vocals whilst giving the overall track a little bump in tempo and impact.
Out November 4.
In other Villa news, Thang has confirmed the duo’s second EP will be released at the end of November via Yuksek’s Partyfine.
