Royksopp & Robyn are proud to announce the release of the Do It Again, an incredible 36 minute 5 track mini album which will be unleashed on 26th May 2014 and precedes a new Royksopp album to be released later in the year. 'Do It Again' is the first single from the mini album and is an accidental pop song written after a night out together in Bergen. It is one of the most effervescent, effortlessly uplifting electro-pop tunes of recent years, and started life as a rave-inspired throwback. Elsewhere, the mini album covers big thumping house in the shape of the club-ready Sayit. On the other end of the spectrum there is the closing Inside The Idle Hour Club, which utilises Robyn's vocal discreetly to create a pensive, slowly evolving soundscape that's worth diving headlong into. "This doesn't sound like Royksopp featuring Robyn or Robyn produced by Royksopp, it's just something else entirely, The word ''collaboration'' has never before been more justified in the world of music! (Royksopp). "In the beginning we just knew we wanted to do something together and then it started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Royksopp or Robyn album so were releasing this music together as a band you could say" (Robyn). The Do It Again tour with Royksopp and Robyn includes a headline slot on the 6Music stage at Latitude Festival on 19th July.

The opening song, "Monument" is a great ethereal chill-out song that is great for relaxing, and evening helping you to sleep. It's melodic lyrics and out of this world beats leave you an autonomous sensory meridian response sense of relaxation.
The follow up, "Sayit" felt overly processed and bland. I, personally, did not like this song the most. It's harsh bitcrushing vocals were not an experience my ears wished to hear.
The title track, "Do It Again" is a fantastic pop-oriented hit that carries the EP back to its high rating. The beats are catchy, the lyrics are there and the energy is all flowing the in correct direction.
The fourth track, "Every Little Thing" reminds me more of of what Royksopp has become over the years. The beats are reminiscent of Royksopp's The Understanding and Junior albums. Wonderful 'end' to the EP.
The final track, "Inside the Idle Hour Club" is a vocalless song similar to "Alpha Male" and other beat driven tracks. It's not especially vibrant or anything but it is an okay close for the EP. Definitely not the strong song on it though.
Overall, the EP is well produced and is definitely worth a buy.
If you're looking for something like her previous albums you'll most likely be disappointed so I'd recommend giving the album a quick Youtube preview prior to purchase
