As a bonus, here is Maceo Plex’s amazing remix of “Sordid Affair” featuring Ryan James. It takes the best parts of the original and combines them in this infectious piece of synth-laden deep house. Enjoy!
The Inevitable End is possibly Röyksopp’s most personal album to date and their first full-length since 2010’s Senior. It will also be their final album, as the pair have announced they want to “say goodbye to the traditional album format” and release music in other formats.

Sydney DJ/producer Beni has a brand new video for his high-energy dancefloor anthem “Someone Just Like You” and it’s premiering on umstrum in Europe (and Prefix in the US)! Shot in California around Joshua Tree and Death Valley and directed by Partizan’s Jared Eberhardt, the video features amazing views of the desert, kaleidoscope shots and trippy projections on naked bodies. Pretty psychedelic…
For the record, “Someone Just Like You” features Mattie Safer (formerly of The Rapture) on vocals and it is taken off Beni’s debut LP, House of Beni, a sparkling collection of pulsating dance music, ranging from Chicago House to electropop, disco and pretty much everything in between. The album is out now via Modular!
