Listen: Kleerup - "Let Me In" (Astma & Rocwell Remix) [Premiere]

13 November 2014, 16:00 | Written by Maya Hambro

Swedish producer Kleerup (you know, he of Robyn, Lykke Li and Neneh Cherry collabs) burst back onto the music scene earlier this year with “Let Me In”, taken off his mini album As If We Never Won, featuring vocals from the superb Susanne Sundfor, something which was agreed by all to be a win for the disco-revival camp, and another classic example of the profound brilliance of the Swedish musical output.

Now, as if we needed further clarification that all the best pop music comes from Scandinavia, Astma & Rocwell (members of Best Fit Recordings' own NONONO) have kindly lent their remixing skills to the track, upping the BPM and dragging the cut out of the 70s before thrusting it into the flickering lights of hyper-modern electro-funk.

Keeping Sundfør’s powerful, leering vocals at the forefront, the duo have thrown some heavy handed percussion into the mix, shifting focus to a hyperactive, juddering beat that begs to be played extremely loudly to a sweaty dancing mob. Where the original felt like a retro throwback, Astma and Rockwell have repurposed it for the millennium, adding extra glittering layers of that indefinable Scandi magic that we just can’t get enough of.
