The response that has ensued from the reconvening of Röyksopp & Robyn has proven that the artists’ intent to satisfy the demand for the supergroup’s gathering was well worth it. First announcing the Do It Again project with Cherrytree Records as making and experimenting with music among three friends and contemporaries, a conceptually coordinating tour, mini-album and its ensuing side projects, Do It Again has since taken on the form of many bite-sized pieces, each needing some savoring. As each track, remix and video has its own voice literally (and figuratively), so do the visuals translated into real life as the group goes on tour. Returning to the US in August to finish up highly anticipated shows, the calmness, depth and innovativeness translated through the five tracks on the mini-album made by Röyksopp & Robyn completes the story they’ve been aiming to tell all along.
Though the official remix EP for “Do It Again” is already out: there is, of course, more. While we know Dave Audé for his melodic club tracks with a little bit of gimmick that totally sell his brand of upbeat dance music, he’s made a special effort on his remix of “Do It Again.” Though this remix was not included on the initial Do It Again remix EP, it is memorable in the way it translates the original into a club house masterpiece. And in the current heyday of the club remix, it’s always possible that the outcome will feel like two mismatched pieces: but that’s not what’s been done here today. Conveying the avant garde profile of “Do It Again” through dueling dark electro synths, Aude gracefully intertwined many of the original’s best points and taken the track to a new height of energy.
