SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "IN THIS SHIRT (Röyksopp Remix)" - The Irrepressibles /// "PLEASE STAY (Röyksopp Remix)" - Mekon

The Bergen wizards of electronica aka Röyksopp just have such a distinctive signature sound they always manage to gloriously apply to any song they have a chance to remix. The list of the artists that got this very fine Norwegian treatment is long and impressive (Peter Gabriel, Spiller, Annie, Beck, Eri Nobuchika, Felix da Housecat, Lady Gaga) but I chose two slightly less known examples. The first one is for the monumental "In this shirt" by The Irrepressibles (I couldn't resist and post that phenomenal video yet again!), Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland are giving it away for free here. The second one is their epic take on Mekon's "Please Stay" that the boys eventually released as their own track called "Don't Go" (check out the live version below). Enjoy!
