Robyn has commissioned some talented producers to remix some of her most important tracks, and you can now listen to the Black Madonna and Cassius remixes of ‘Indestructible’ and ‘Dance On My Own’ respectively.
Black Madonna goes for a lively remix that reflects the original perfectly, whilst legendary duo Cassius add a bit of Parisian chic to the already heady Nordic broth.
“One night, a long time ago, we were playing in Stockholm,” the guys of Cassius tells us. “We met this girl who took great care of us all night, bringing us to the best places to dance and have fun. We sang some Neneh Cherry classics in the car and soon discovered that she was Robyn, the singer. Every DJ knows those little moments and little things that light a day on the road. So when Robyn called us to remix one of her songs, we knew it was time to give back. Counting on our chance and her talent, we asked her to send the one song she was thinking about. After one night of basslining, beatboxing, sweating and dancing in the studio, we instantly knew we loved the song in the end,” they add.
Both are essential listening.
