Our fine friends at Mixmag have premiered a Maceo Plex remix of Royksopp’s “Sordid Affair.” How this track has existed on the internet for several days before I caught wind of it, I’ll never know. I’ll accept the failure and pray that Maceo Plex has the heart to forgive me.
The prolific deep house producer was just named #5 on Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJs list and it’s apparent why. Maceo Plex’s rework of “Sordid Affair” is incredibly lush and what I imagine the angels in heaven are spinning on their turntables.
“This 5 track mini-album is the accumulation and embodiment of the synergy between Robyn and ourselves. We’ve intended this to be a diverse yet cohesive and thought through musical venture; it’s meant to be an expression where pop & art reign side by side.” (Röyksopp)
“Svein and Torbjörn and I started working on new music in the beginning of 2013, I´ve been going back and forth to Bergen to record and write with the boys up until recently. Collaborating with S & T is something I enjoy very much. In the beginning we just knew we wanted to do something together and then it started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Röyksopp or Robyn album so we´re releasing this music together as a band you could say.” (Robyn)
Menacing Swiss disco duo In Flagranti remixes the title track, they chop up the vocals from Robyn and roughens up the Röyksopp synths in order for the track to be better suited for those dark warehouse parties.
