"Konichiwa Bitches"/Trentemøller Remix

I don’t know what the deal is, but there’s been a slew of “retro-releases” this year. The latest is a track from Robyn’s 2005 self-titled album, released on 3/19 as the Konichiwa Bitches EP. 2005 people! I shouldn’t complain, even though I would imagine everyone and their mother have heard “Konichiwa Bitches” by now. If not, here’s your chance to witness the best white-girl rap of the 00’s. Let’s be clear, Robyn is not a rapper, and doesn’t rap on any other songs. The song is a novelty gem referring back the 80’s when rap was fun, and a sense of fun won over “real” rhyme skills. Although the original track holds its own, it’s the Trentemøller remix that makes fire feel like a sea breeze….it’s just that hot. Trent has pretty much established himself as one of the best remixer’s in the game. The remix shifts the rhythm from the strict hi-hats of the original to a looser kick drum/double clap combination. He doesn’t settle for just one style though, he brings in the classic electro beat on the second verse. From the chunky hard-rock power chords to the low one-note surf-guitar, it’s a complete overhaul of the original track, and some may argue that it’s even better.
