The day has finally come. Marina & the diamonds’ ‘I Am Not A Robot’ gets it re-release today, along with an amazing remix package. Which includes the long awaited, long overdue, much hyped, Clock Opera remix. Was it worth the wait?
For the first minute of the track I didn’t think so. But then I realised that Clock Opera have not only reworked the music, adding soaring strings and pulsing piano parts, they’ve taken Marina’s vocals and spliced them to create new lyrics altogether. “Our love faded / Our love faded.” Incredible work from Clock Opera, I can guarantee that you’ll have this one on repeat, and have that line stuck in your head, for a long time.

As previously mentioned Marina & the diamonds’ next single is ‘I Am Not A Robot’, set to be released April 26th. The EP is set to feature the aforementioned remix from Passion Pit, as well as contributions from Clock Opera and Doorly. The Clock Opera remix has been highly praised by both Marina’s label 679 Artists and Neon Gold (who went as far as to say it was their favourite remix ever. Yes EVER!) so understandably I am quite looking forward to that one. Get this limited edition signed 7” from Pure Groove while you can!
You can also hear a remix by Fool’s Gold (and download the free mp3) over at The Fader. Fool’s Gold have definitely infused their own sound onto the track, making it less of a remix and more of a ‘Robot’/’Surprise Hotel’ mash-up. Not that it makes a difference, it’s very listenable and makes Robot more of a danceable jam!! Get the Penguin Prison remix (also great!) whilst you’re over there..thanks Fader!
