RONE, KEY PLAYER IN THE ELECTRONIC MUSIC SCENE, TO RELEASE SUBLIME REMIX OF AGNES OBEL SONG “CAN’T BE”
OUT ON DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON TODAY
25 JUNE 2021 (TORONTO, ON) - Agnes Obel’s Myopia set creative ripples in motion. The Berlin-based Danish artist and producer’s debut Deutsche Grammophon album, released early last year, has inspired French DJ and experimental electronic musician Rone to pay her the ultimate artistic accolade. His take on one of Myopia’s standout tracks, “Can’t Be”, brings together their two strikingly distinct and personal soundworlds. The Rone remix is scheduled for release as a DG e-single on June 25 2021 via Deutsche Grammophon/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
“Agnes Obel is an artist close to my heart,” says Rone. “Like Björk, she seems to me like some sort of fairy from a far-away land making enchanting music. I’m proud and happy that she called on me for this remix, which was a huge pleasure to make! My intention was to take her voice elsewhere, into a more rhythmic and dynamic structure, while trying to keep the elegance and magic of the original version.”
Erwan Castex, aka Rone, was born in 1980 and grew up in Paris. His reputation as a rising star of the electronic music scene was confirmed with the 2009 release of his debut album, Spanish Breakfast. Since then he has created six more studio albums, a series of EPs and a run of remixes, the latter including tracks by Max Cooper, Etienne Daho and Jabberwocky. He has also collaborated with, among others, American indie rock band The National, pioneering composer and producer Jean-Michel Jarre, and the orchestra Les Siècles and its conductor, François-Xavier Roth.
