Röyksopp & Robyn, “Monument” (Olof Dreijer Remix)

In 2014, Röyksopp and Robyn released their massive (and thus aptly named) “Monument.” Coming from the collaborative EP Do it Again — which hit No. 1 on the Dance Album chart in June of 2014 — the moody, hypnotic song was both sonically and commercially large, serving as the soundtrack to a Volvo commercial starring the Swedish dance pop queen. (“It’s not a commercial about a car; it’s a commercial about a way of thinking,” Robyn said of this endeavor at the time.)

Seven years later, “Monument” gets a new life with a remix from Olof Dreijer of revered Swedish electronic duo, The Knife. Under Dreijer’s care, the plodding tempo of the original is sped way up, with a layer of tropically-influenced percussion driving an altogether lighter, but still resonant “Monument.”
