Norwegian electronic music duo Röyksopp and Swedish recording artist Robyn are a match made in heaven. They have previously collaborated on well-received songs “The Girl and the Robot” and “None of Dem”, however, they released this year the Do It Again EP and created a special 2014 summer tour together.
‘Do It Again’ Tracklisting:
3. Do It Again
4. Every Little Thing
5. Inside The Idle Hour Club
“This summer we’ll be teaming up with the amazing Robyn to partake in a series of concerts throughout the world. Performing together is something we’ve occasionally done in the past – all to such merriment and exuberance, that we’ve decided to reunite and “Do It Again” in 2014. Each of these events will consist of a Robyn-part, a Röyksopp-part and of course a joined Robyn+Röyksopp-part – all wrapped up in lights ‘n smoke and tons of joy. To say we’re excited, is an understatement.” – Röyksopp

We’ve done shows together here and there and it’s a pleasure to be on tour with Svein & Torbjørn. I love them. I can’t say much about my set right now – I’m working on a lot of music at the moment and whatever is finished might be something I put into the set list. As usual I just hope people want to dance. I see pink lasers.” – Robyn
The latest offering is the epic 10 minute single Monument which begins the EP and acts like a brilliant departure for the duo showcasing a strong individuality to their latest endeavors. The video for the single Monument is a sci-fi inspired film that was shot by director Max Vitali, produced by VICE and Intel’s The Creators Project.
Röyksopp & Robyn – A Monument To Everything (Kindness mix feat. Busiswa)
Kindness has remixed Monument, taken from the Do It Again mini-album.
“I played ‘Monument’ to Adam (Kindness) a long time ago way before it was finished, so he´s heard it grow and when he said he´d like to remix it, I knew he was going to make something special. He brought the song to a new place, his place. It´s a place that I love. Busiswa sounds so good on it too, I´m happy to have another girl on there.” Robyn
We should not be friends
We’ll just do it again
If you stay around
