Following on from the global success of debut single ‘Breathe’ feat. Neev, Norwegian production masterminds Seeb release their 7 record-tight remix package to accompany the single, available to buy from today via Universal Music.
With the original single premiering on global tastemaker Pete Tongs’ BBC Radio 1 show, it has since gone on to amass over 42 million streams on Spotify alone, as well as storming the Spotify Top 100 & hitting #5 in the UK viral chart.
Their remix of Mike Posner’s global smash hit ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’ plays a key part in their rising success; having already amassed a monumental 452 million Spotify streams alone, with a Top 3 in the global Spotify charts, landing the duo a #1 position in the UK charts for four consecutive weeks and reaching #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Breaking through all barriers of music, ‘Breathe’ showcases talent that is not only raw yet fully immersive – and with that said, each remix mirrors exactly this. Leading with the Nora En Pure Remix, the South African DJ & producer transforms ‘Breathe’ into an underground club mover, laced with piano chords and a thumping bass-line.
The Purple Disco Machine remix is a nod to the German born masterminds’ signature deep-funk roots, proof that ‘Breathe’ has vast interchangeable production qualities. Next up is Stockholm based duo Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman’s take on the original, which takes ‘Breathe’ on a transcendent journey from start to finish – not forgetting live electro-duo SMLE’s rework and multilayered soundscape.
Anastasis & Josefin Rosén have taken the reigns on their version of ‘Breathe’, lending the track scattered percussive elements & a deeper, darker undertone. English newcomer Hanami in turn slows the pace of the original record down, paving way to a whole new depth of capabilities with his emotive rework. Rounding off the 7-track remix EP is a high energy retake from Albin Myers, proof again that such a track can break through yet a further set of barriers.

Simen Eriksrud & Espen Berg – better known as the collaborative project Seeb – came together in Oslo in 2015. Already recognised for their production and song writing abilities, they soon realised that there was an endless amount of possibilities ahead. Their remixes for the likes of Tove Lo’s ‘Moments’, Kiesza’s ‘Cut Me Loose’, Shawn Mendes ‘Stitches’ and Mike Posner’s ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’ have turned heads worldwide. With the success of their remixes landing them a record deal with Universal Music at the start of 2016, they begin the year with their debut ‘Breathe’ and have much more on the horizon.
