Robyn – Dancing On My Own (Templeton Remix)
The art of remixing isn’t rocket science. It boils down to doing the right thing with the right track and taking it somewhere it hasn’t been before in the process. LA-newcomer Templeton is an artist who simply gets this.
Robyn’s ‘Dancing On My Own’ had no shortage of remixes and bootlegs offerings on the first serving, but few have held their corner on the approach to the current global appetite for house music.
It’s a simple cut that makes all the right moves at the right times. Solid grooves and intuitive melodic progressions keep things interesting enough whilst honoring the original’s singalong appeal. From a nation that seems to have been more accustomed to mimicking the crassly-dubbed ‘future house’ sound, Templeton plays into the hands of people who love house from across the ages, making him a genuine catch in a crowded musical space.
