You&Me played one of their most popular tracks, an edit of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” for the first time at Colgate University in April 2015. The edit generated a lot of great feedback from the crowd and it became their signature track for their sets for the rest of the year.
The catchy edit became such a huge hit, that You&Me decided to create a new remix of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” which dropped today, April 28. The song incorporates progressive house and trance beats with an intense drop that will get you groovy. Robyn’s melodic electropop vocals allows the track to go the extra mile, hypnotizing you to sing along.
However, this is just the first remixed version of the electronic ballad.
“We were torn between following our house and trance influences or going a deeper, darker route with the remix; in the end, we chose to do both. This is the first installment of our upcoming A&B Series, an exploration of duality in art where two remixes of the same original song are paired together. This is the progressive ‘A-side’ remix, which will be followed by a darker ‘B-side’ remix coming soon,” explained You&Me.
You&Me have created a variety of other popular remixes such as La Roux’s “Bulletproof,” Prince Fox’s “Wait Until Tomorrow,” and KOLAJ’s “The Touch”– to name a few.
The original “Dancing On My Own” track hails from Robyn’s fifth studio album “Body Talk Pt. 1.” The song was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording and reached the top ten in Denmark, Norway, Scotland and the United Kingdom.
