It’s only the beginning of December, but already Robyn has recorded Diplo’s “favourite track of 2010”. The producer, who is due in Australia over New Years with his Major Lazer Soundsystem project alongside Switch, has been in the studio with the Swedish synthpop queen working on tracks for the follow up to Robyn’s 2007 self titled album.
Their collaboration has sparked a series of excited tweets from the pair, with Robyn commenting; “respect to @diplo who, even though he’s a busy hot shot producer, travels out to Sweden and Las vegas to work with me. no holds barred.” In return, Diplo followed up with; “Shout out 2 @robynkonichiwa for breakin the couch in vegas and making my favorite track of 2010 ! Dancehall queen! She whoa whoa”.
Diplo claims that the track is “like lil orphan annie meets dawn penn inna london rave… I think we broke dubstep”. Robyn is also working with Klas Åhlund of Teddybears and Kleerup of With Every Heartbeat fame on new music.
