A few weeks ago, Chicago’s The Black Madonna graced us with a killer house rework of Robyn’s “Indestructible”. Now, she’s back in action with yet another remix, a rubberband funk re-rub of Tiga’s jam “Blondes Have More Fun”, a track taken from his recent “No Fantasy Required” album. And it’s so damn good. Give it a spin above, and ride with us.

Speaking about the remix, The Black Madonna says: “Reimagining someone else’s work is one of the most fun parts of producing for me. I’m a huge Tiga fan, so the chance to work with this track was really exciting and I am super happy with the remix. It was also great to get to try out my new powerhouse synthesizer, the Moog Voyager, which I picked up from Moogfest, along with my engineering partner Rupert Murray and our buddy Chris La Barbera who we’ve been working with on the next Black Madonna project with.”

Tiga’s “Blondes Have More Fun” remix package also includes reworks by prolific Swedish producer Jonas Rathsman and Running Back boss Gerd Janson. Get yourself a copy of The Black Madonna’s “Immaterial Girl” remix here.

French house maestro Lifelike takes us on a ride back to the ’80s with this synth-laden new remix of “Toi Et Moi”, the brilliant single from Parisian electro-pop duo Paradis. This remix is another perfect example of Lifelike’s trademark style. The track “Toi Et Moi” will appear on the duo’s upcoming debut album “Recto Verso”, which will drop in September.

In their own words: “Laurent Heinrich, aka Lifelike, has always felt like a pretty underrated producer to us, a true signature in the art of remixing, consistently delivering a distinctly French approach to dance music, fuelled by Italo-disco and ’80s synth-pop; Obviously, we were very curious about what he could come up with for ‘Toi Et Moi’. This one definitely brings up teenage emotions for us.”

Lifelike’s remix of “Toi Et Moi” is out now digitally via Barclay. Get it here.

Swedish pop star Robyn has invited some of her favorite producers in the dance scene to give a new twist to key tracks from throughout her career. The “RMX/RBN” project featuring remixes by the likes of The Black Madonna, Cassius, Axel Boman, Joakim, The Mekanism and more. As she says, “Remixes make me listen to a song in a different way; they stretch you out as a listener and leave space for other things that a pop song usually doesn’t.”

The next installment in Robyn’s remix series comes from The Black Madonna. As expected, the Chicago producer delivers the goods, a house rework of “Indestructible”, a track from 2010’s “Body Talk”, that clocks in at almost nine minutes. A dancefloor heater.

Brooklyn’s No Regular Play, the duo of Greg Paulus and Nicholas DeBruyn, have a new album on the way, called “Can’t You See”, which follows their 2012 debut LP, “Endangered Species”, on Wolf + Lamb Records. Recorded shortly after the passing of Greg Paulus’ father, Stephen Paulus, famed classical composer, the pair’s second album is driven by their bold spirit to positively respond to a very intense period in their lives.

Our first taste of the album comes from “Lake Gilmore”, a finely crafted tune with nostalgic melodies and Greg Paulus inimitable trumpet. The main melody in “Lake Gilmore” is an outline of a chord that famed classical composer Stephen Paulus used repeatedly in his music. Give it a spin above, and make sure to check out a fine remix of the track from DFA mainstay Juan MacLean below.

The album “”Can’t You See” drops on August 5th via Crew Love Records.
