Last week brought news that SOPHIE has teamed up with Juliana Huxtable as Analemma and today is another great day for fans of the boundary-pushing electronic artist, with the arrival of a new remix. Her take on London-based SONIKKU's "Sweat" is a relentless dancefloor banger, turning vocalist LIZ's Kylie Minogue "Slow"-aping vocals into hyperspace with a trademark dose of PC Music energy.
“When SOPHIE and I met, we played each other our favourite disco music, and I think we view pop music in a very similar way," SONIKKU said in a statement. "A mutual friend played 'Sweat' to her, and she connected with it instantly. To collaborate with an artist whose music I admire feels unreal, I could listen to [SOPHIE's] ‘Nothing More To Say’ endlessly. I feel the same hypersonic energy of that track was brought to the ‘Sweat’ remix.”
The remix is taken from a forthcoming EP of "Sweat" remixes, due for release this Friday (December 13) via Bella Union.
