A celebration of the remix’s power to make you hear songs in a different way.
Swedish singer Robyn posted on her website yesterday that she has invited nine artists to remix tracks from her catalogue and career, including Chicago’s The Black Madonna, French production duo Cassius, and German musician Wolfgang Voigt.
The remixes, under the title RBN/RMX, will be debuted at a series of live performances in upcoming weeks, starting with Boston Calling tonight, Governor’s Ball in NYC, and Field Trip in Toronto. A release will follow.
Robyn included a note on her website about the project, saying “remixes make me listen to a song in a different way; they stretch you out as a listener and leave space for other things that a pop song usually doesn’t. I hope to be able to share this experience with my audiences at Governor’s Ball, Boston Calling, and Field Trip over the next week and just dancing together…”
