“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.

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

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
