robyn covers björk

08.30.10

here’s her highness robyn doing a formidably faithful cover of “hyperballad” by her highness björk at some ceremony that awarded a shit ton of money to the latter for making some of the best music of the last 2 decades  (or at least the ’90s). this cover seems like such a good fit that i’m almost surprised someone didn’t think to have robyn do it sooner. judging by her faces throughout, however, björk doesn’t seems to enjoy it nearly as much as i do.

what do you think???

dance to the radio

07.22.10

well that didn’t take long, did it? just a few short weeks after resigning as host of the circuit, i found a new gig with the independently run y-not radio. i’ll be hosting a new show called transmission that specializes in the same alternative dance, electronica (take that, john!), and blog beats that you’ve all come to know and love me for. tune in tonight at 9pm ET for two hours of new music from robyn, beat connection, baths, delorean, night gallery and many more. if you have a track or artist that you think is transmission-worthy, feel free to hit me up via e-mail or twitter.

tonight’s playlist will go a little something like this…

robyn – don’t fucking tell me what to do
hot chip – transmission
monarchy – love get out of my way (tim goldsworthy remix)
chromeo – don’t turn the lights on
soft metals – the cold world melts
LCD soundsystem – get innocuous!
psychobuildings – terror management
wild nothing – bored games
crystal castles – empathy
sleigh bells – A/B machines
MNDR – fade to black
kisses – people can do the most amazing things (saint etienne remix)
beat connection – in the water
the golden filter – frejya’s ghost
delorean – real love
night gallery – constant struggle
active child – take shelter
florence and the machine – you’ve got the love (the xx remix)
aeroplane – i crave paris (friendly fires vs. flight facilities)
washed out – feel it all around
the knife – heartbeats
baths – plea
hercules and love affair – iris
owen pallett – lewis takes his shirt off (CFCF remix)

hang with me

07.20.10

i know i may be talking about robyn a lot these days, but she’s for real and not pretend. here’s the fully, fabulously synthed out single version of “hang with me” from the forthcoming body talk pt. 2, out sept. 6.

and oh yeah, she dropped by letterman last night too. killed it, of course.

rocking the robyn remixes

07.19.10

2010 is shaping up to be a banner year for robyn and her fans alike. she made a huge splash with her performance at pitchfork music festival this past weekend (the whole of which can be sampled here). her joint “all hearts tour” with kelis begins this week on the west coast and oh yeah, she’s currently sporting one of the best albums of the year, with another potential contender dropping in september (and another who knows when after that).

needless to say, i’ve been all about the robyn this summer, and so have the remixers. i found a particularly impressive pair of remixes this morning to share with you. the first (via) is a barnstorming interpretation of body talk pt. 1 standout “none of dem” by criminals that cuts out the röyksopp arrangement in favor of a rave beat. this should make for a great 1 AM pick me up:

robyn – none of dem (criminals remix)

the second one (via) is a shimmering “sundrenched FM” take on hit single “dancing on my own” by swedish producer copycat. call me crazy but i hear a hint of “since you’ve been gone” in this one. ordinarily, that would work against it for me but this song wears top 40 sheen very well.

robyn – dancing on my own (copycat’s sundrenched FM remix)

robyn’s new single, a souped up version of the formerly acoustic “hang with me” is out sept. 5. can’t wait to hear the remixes that inspires.

UPDATE: well what do you know? here’s knifey, nearly nine-minute version of it by kaiserdisco now!

robyn – hang with me (kaiserdisco remix)

thanks again sheena!

robyn – dancing on my own: live in london

06.21.10

she’s giving it her all, in both stripped down and full band form. see for yourself…

body talk part 1 is out now, as is the dancing on my own single with its myriad choice remixes. robyn graces our shores later this summer. better see you there…

monarchy do acapella

06.3.10

the mysterious monarchy, who used to be the equally mysterious milke, finally have a debut album ready to roll out later this summer (with new single “love get out of my way” already making the rounds on BBC radio).

they’ve turned in one last remix to remember them by until then, and it’s a stunner. they take new kelis single “acapella” and turn it into a cosmic disco stormer worthy of kylie minogue (who should seriously consider getting these guys to produce a few tracks for her).

here it is below in extended club and radio edited forms. both are excellent.

kelis – acapella (monarchy urania club mix)

kelis – acapella (monarchy urania radio edit)

speaking of kelis, she embarks on a joint north american tour with current dancing queen supreme robyn this summer. dates after the jump…

stilettos on broken bottles

05.22.10

i’ve been fairly obsessed with this song since i first heard it and now it has an awesome accompanying video directed my max vatali. check it out if you haven’t already. if this song doesn’t become huge in the clubs, something is seriously wrong, people.

body talk pt. 1 comes out next month and robyn has announced plans to tour with kelis this summer. hotness…
