SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "SLOWLY" - Susanne Sundfør /// "I HAD THIS THING" - Röyksopp feat. Jamie McDermott + Joris Voorn Remix
The leading characters of today's post are Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland, better known as Röyksopp - the Norwegian wizards of electronica as I like to call them. The Tromsø duo produced and remixed many a gem all through the years but "Slowly", the song they collaborated on with their compatriot synth pop diva Susanne Sundfør, may as well be among the pair's most accomplished works to date. Sundfør's epic "Ten Love Songs" is out now and also includes my #1 song last month "Delirious" (see the entire "Crème de la crème" chart HERE).
Röyksopp have also just released another single from "The Inevitable End" and it's one of the 5 magical recordings with The Irrepressibles' vocalist Jamie McDermott.
