Robyn just completed a short run of festivals in North America, including a headline set at Governors Ball. Ahead of these shows she invited some of her favorite artists in dance music from across the globe to remix key tracks from throughout her career, she performed these new versions of the songs live at the brief tour.

Here’s the sublime, cowbell infused and hypnotizing tribal house version of the track “Hang With Me” done up by Axel Boman – the reigning king of electronic dance music in Sweden.

We consider Swedish producer/dj MRTN to be part of the Discobelle fam, he has spent a big chunk of the past decade dj’ing at clubs/festivals/showcases across most of the Northern hemisphere and also running the succesful blog turned label Stockholm Beat Connection. In 2011 he started producing together with POMP (Robyn’s drummer) under the moniker MRTN and they’ve racked up a string of strong releases, most notably their 2011 track “Slow” and the 2014 release “Illusion.

We’re proud to present you with this excellent housed up mixtape from MRTN, which should enable you all to get in that weekend spirit albeit a day early.

After having signed to Robyn’s label Konichiwa Records back in 2012 and releasing the acclaimed Prophet” EP last year, Swedish artist Zhala now drops new album single “Aerobic Lambada” (taken from her upcoming album that’s due in March) that showcases her self described “cosmic pop” sound with a haunting and epic track that practically oozez of synthlaced dancey pop.

“Who Do You Love is a song about people and connection, and how you can identify who you are by those you love. Those people say a hell of a lot about you. Robyn and I were very happy to make this video with a long term collaborator of mine, Daniel Brereton, whose idea was a series of portraits of our closest friends and family – in a way, the most revealing portraits of us possible. None of these folks were ‘cast’ – we were just lucky to have them around us on the day and in the right cities!

It’s possible that we’ll always be more emotionally susceptible to these images – these are our closest friends and loved ones after all – but there’s something about seeing all these people together, all these people that would do this for us – it makes the song make a little more sense, and a little more powerful for us. I hope you’ll feel some of what we feel when we look at these faces. Thanks to all of those friends, family and collaborators that made it possible.” – Adam
