Again & Again

Royksopp & Robyn – Do It Again (single)

Royksopp & Robyn have collaborative history on The Girl and the Robot from Royksopp’s 2009 album Junior and also on None of Dem from Robyn’s 2010 release Body Talk Pt1 they have again joined forces and have now recorded a mini album called (how aptly) Do It Again, which is also the title of the lead off single.

On first listen the lyrics to Do It Again may seem to be without depth but VeReViewS suggests that they contain deeper hidden meanings the first one is when you are at a club and the DJ plays a big tune and then it arrives, the anticipation is like MMM MMM MMM wait for it wait for the build up & the second one VeReViewS will leave that to your imagination!!

The inspiration behind Do It Again was apparently a night out together that Robyn & Royksopp had, it must have been a brilliant night as Do It Again is as close to pop perfection as one song can be, an ice cool electro/trance banger with more hooks and bounce than any one song should have

Both Royksopp & Robyn have found official chart action a little hard with their previous solo releases, here’s hoping that Do It Again takes them to the top of the summit

Katy B Won’t B Still!

Katy B – Still(Single)

What do you do if you are predominantly known for dubstep and garage and have your biggest hit with the ballad, Cryin For No Reason, and have an album full of club bangers (Next Thing, Aaliyah)? You release more of the same and in the case of Katy B its no bad thing as the follow up is the sublime Still!

In a shrewd move by the record company, instead of hanging onto this track and release it at Christmas, it will hit the shelves prior to Katy’s festival appearances this summer. Still, is a slow burner of a song which will slowly captivate and win over new fans and may propell Katy B to the number 1 slot, it is also the kind of track that Leona Lewis would kill for and marvel at the lusciousness of Katy B’s hair in the video.
