Øostil & Rêverie – Missing Robot Feat. Paula Os (Rodriguez Jr. Remix) [Renaissance]

6 min read

Øostil is back at Renaissance…

This time we find him celebrating his Argenitne roots as he joins forces with Rêverie and Paula OS, who also hail from the South American hotbed. “I am on the road all the time these days,” says Antü, the man behind the Øostil alter-ego, “and I keep hearing all this amazing music, which is exactly how ‘Missing Robot was conceived. It’s no secret Argentina has a vibrant scene (not that I’m biased!), loaded with talent, but the Rêverie guys really impressed me, which is why I wanted to work together. It’s fun to collaborate with emerging talent; in my experience it leads to extremely exciting music.”

True to his word, the resulting track did begin life as an exciting experiment, “We produced it by kicking the digital football back and forth so I could work on it in amongst my touring, but then – once completed - weren’t sure what to do with it!”, he continues, laughing, “It turned out to be an emotive slice of electronica with a real sense of melancholy, the perfect prop for Paula’s beautiful vocal. But it certainly isn’t what you’d call a ‘peak time’ record, though does have sunset and sunrise written all over!”

After much persuading and arm-twisting on the part of Renaissance, who fell in love with ‘Missing Robot’, the team finally agreed to release it as a single and, just like that, the hunt was on for a remixer. “We all knew we had to get this right. We didn’t want to hand the track to just anyone. It had to be an artist who could convert it to 4/4 and drive toward peak time - no easy task!” says Antü.

Step forward Rodriguez Jr., who returns to Renaissance after a stellar live performance at Zamna’s April Edition and, label wise, his remix of Argy’s ‘Power Of Detachment’. Much like that reinterpretation, he delivers summer on a dancefloor. His ‘Missing Robot’ soars, taking Paula’s vocal to greater, goosebump heights.

“I’ve been closely following Øostil for the past five years as he’s been putting out a constant flow of flawless productions. He’s one of the most promising music producers of his generation. So, I was extremely excited to take on Missing Robot, which he produced with Rêverie and Paula OS, and accepted the challenging mission to turn it to a 4/4. The original is such a beautiful piece of art. My intention was to focus on original vocals and chords and emphasize the core emotion as much as possible.” – Rodriguez Jr.
