Röyksopp & Robyn – “A Monument To Everything (Kindness Remix)”
Earlier this year, Adam Bainbridge, aka Kindness, completely remade Blood Orange’s “Uncle ACE” with house legend Robert Owens. Now he’s taken on the spacious, slow-burning “Monument” by Röyksopp & Robyn, from their recent mini-album Do It Again, this time completely remaking it as “A Monument To Everything.” It’s such a drastic reformation that the title change is totally warranted. Bainbridge strips down the song to an even sparser arrangement than before, and adds a vocal verse from Busiswa, a South African singer and poet who absolutely dominates the track. This is remixing at its most impressive and ambitious. Listen.
Do It Again is out now via on Dog Triumph, via Wall Of Sound/Cooking Vinyl.
