Exciting new Swedish duo BC Unidos have releases the first official remix for their debut single Bicycle, a fantastic rework from Swedish producer Carli featuring Ears. The remix is released via Columbia Records and is available everywhere now.
This week also saw the release of a brilliant fan-made video for Bicycle by Be One Cycling Studio located in Mongolia. Try not working up a sweat watching the video HERE!
BC Unidos is the brainchild of Swedish musicians Markus Krunegård and Patrik Berger. Patrik is a songwriter, producer and musician who has penned global hits such as Robyn Dancing On My Own, Icona Pop I Love It and Charli XCX’s Boom Clap. Markus is one of Sweden’s most prolific artists with multiple Grammy nominated domestic and English language projects to his name.
The duo’s debut effort is the perfect summer track that describes one’s love for their two-wheeler. With Zimbabwean/Californian singer Shungudzo’s feel-good vocals, a driving baseline and irresistible melody, Bicycle will have you on your feet (or in a bicycle seat!) in no time. Bicycle has been attracting praise from several key tastemakers with Annie Mac and Huw Stephens playing it several times on their BBC Radio 1 shows.
The remix from acclaimed Swedish producer Carli takes the original into club territory by fusing grime with dancehall elements along with bits of house and base with a feature from Ears.
BC Unidos first rose to prominence via their production on Santigold’s 2016 single Can’t Get Enough Of Myself (Ft. BC). The duo have since added ‘Unidos’ to their name – a reference to the collective spirit of the project, functioning as a pressure-free home for collaboration amongst creative friends.
In fact, much of the writing done for the project has been done at a haunted house (yes, actually haunted!) in the Swedish countryside.
Markus says:” With BC Unidos, we have invited some of our friends to partake in a musical free zone where no rules apply – proving that open minds and unity can create a better and more fun-loving world.” Bicycle is a track that demonstrates this free spirit attitude.
Listen to the track below and be on the lookout for more music from BC Unidos in the near future.
