Ólafur Arnalds has released a new funky version of ‘they sink’, remixed by Grammy nominated record producer and DJ TOKiMONSTA (Jennifer Lee).
The original chilled version of the track features on Ólafur’s critically acclaimed album re:member, which is out now on Mercury KX.
“I met TOKiMONSTA when playing alongside each other at Sónar Reykjavík a couple of years ago. Instantly fascinated by her approach and sound, I was very excited to see what she would do with a track like ’they sink’, Ólafur recalls.
Known for her unique take on indie, electronic, R&B and dance music, as well as collaborations with Jessie Ware, Anderson Paak and Kelly Rowland – LA-based electronic artist TOKiMONSTA adds distorted beats, pulsating rhythms and upbeat synths to Olafur’s haunting melody. The remix is an ingenious collaboration of two different worlds colliding to create something truly exceptional – “It was a true pleasure to remix his beautiful composition and now share it with the world.”
