Robyn: Remixed, Reworked, Reflipped

If you watch Robyn's iheartvideo performance here, you'll notice at the end, she says (as all artists who partake in the web series do) a bit about what she "hearts". Her quip goes, "My name is Robyn. I heart repetition, Rosie Perez and I heart radio." How cute! So in taking a cue from the singer, this post title definitely goes the repetitive route, alliteration, if you will. Also...mega radness. More "r" words...right on!

Keeping in tune with what's new, not only in her killa world, but also in the lives and ears of kids who dig her stuff so much that they want to put their own spin on songs and sayings, we dug for some new hits to get acclimated with.

 

First up, Far East Movement, the singer's All Hearts Tour-mates, took her song, Don't Fucking Tell Me What to Do from Body Talk Pt 1 and did their signature re-flip stylings on it. The new jam is called Don't Fucking Tell Me What to Drink, and the "I like celery" part is about adorable as you can imagine.

Next up, I'll let DJ MAJR do the talking. “I love this track in its original form, but I wanted it to be more danceable. I picked up the tempo, laced in a backtrack from an old L.A. Riots remix of Scanners, and then manipulated the track’s lows, highs, and mids until my ears were content with it. I beefed up the bass, made the backtrack more bubbly, edited the shit out of it, and then cut up the track until I felt like I and gave it more of a rise and fall than the laced-in base track of Avicii.

Lastly, a 10-minute beaut of a mix from Drop Out. His orchestral fix is smooth and sensual, and keep it locked through the whole play, because it just gets better and better.

All is Full of Love: Robyn and Kelis Bring Their All Hearts Tour to Music Hall of Williamsburg

When Robyn and Kelis announced their joining of forces for their one-two punch of a dance-pop bill earlier this summer, it was with 100% anticipatory fan-girl excitement that I began counting down the days to their All Hearts Tour pit stop in NYC. Last night's first showing at Music Hall of Williamsburg (2 more sold out shows at Webster Hall next week) was precisely the excitable romp and rad time I could have ever imagined. Having seen both artists perform prior, this super special double headlining bill left me weak, wowed and wielding a heart ready to burst with adoration and appreciation.

Opening the evening's festivities were Far East Movement. Although the crowd was still noticeably thin for the early set from the Los Angeles hip-hop troupe, they took the stage with more energy than I can recall an act ever having for a 7pm time-slot. Following their lead, London's Dan Black began his set with my favorite of his tunes, Pump My Pumps, which comes from his debut album, ((UN)). Near the end of his time, the room began to fill more rapidly, as wanting hearts were eager for the girls to get their groove on.
