DA Premiere: Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique – Love Is Free (Todd Terry Remix)
It’s rare to find a song brimming with as much dance music history as a Todd Terry remix of Robyn. The collective influence between the two of them — from Robyn’s seminal hits like “Show Me Love” and “Dancing On My Own,” to Todd Terry’s role in shaping modern house music — is astounding to say the least.
Earlier this year, the Swedish songstress announced her newest project, Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique: a collaboration alongside keyboardist Markus Jägerstedt and the late Christian Falk. Who better to remix their first single “Love Is Free” than Todd Terry? As you’d expect from a seasoned veteran of the house and garage world, Terry’s work is lined with old-school, Chicago vibes. From the deeply layered drum beat to the FM bassline, it’s got all the hallmarks of a groove-inducing dance floor number.
Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique will be releasing a mini-album on Konichiwa/Cherrytree/Interscope Records later this summer. The first single, “Love Is Free,” is out now.
