Röyksopp - 49 Percent
Röyksopp's second album The Understanding may have been vaguely disappointing, but there's little doubting the brilliance of this track, proof that the boys are still capable of conjuring up some Norweigan magic. The soulful voice of guest Chelonis R. Jones sounds at once heartbroken and defiant against a backdrop of some magnificently tumbling beats, all adding up to make 49 Percent a wonderfully uplifting song.
Wisely, the majority of the remixes don't tamper much with the vocal. Angello & Ingrosso's take may be the most straightforward/obvious, but definitely deserves to be a storming club tune.
