Starting with their truly game-changing remix of Mike Posner’s ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’ through to their work with the likes of Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Tove Lo, OneRepublic and Dagny, chances are that you’ve heard the music of Seeb or at least their influence – even if you may not know who they are.
Simen Eriksrud and musical partner Espen Berg formed Seeb through their love of defying genre and chasing the most fresh and original sounds. They scored a Hype Machine No.1 with their remix of Kiesza’s ‘Cut Me Loose’, before extending their unique technique of vocal chopping on their globe-conquering take on Mike Posner’s ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’. It hit No.2 on the Global Spotify Chart, No.4 on Billboard Hot 100, became a world radio and dancefloor smash, soon becoming the second most played song globally in 2016.
Before long, they gave their spin on Shawn Mendes’ ‘Stitches’, Chris Martin invited them to remix Coldplay’s ‘Hymn For The Weekend’, they gave a new sense of colour to Taylor Swift’s ‘Delicate’, OneRepublic asked them to collaborate on ‘Rich Love’ and their adventurous and runaway original tracks with the likes of Skylar Grey and Dagny had them amassing over 4billion streams in just two years.
Now, they’ve teamed up with Bastille on their epic new single ‘Grip’ – a track that carries their signature blend of melancholy and euphoria, of dance music with a human sensibility. As Bastille’s Dan Smith himself sings on ‘Grip’: “Who knows where our limits lie? We won’t discover ‘til we push it”. With their own music, their own vision and living on their own terms, they’re taking things far beyond what they or anyone else ever thought possible. Now it’s time for the world to catch up with Seeb. You will know their name.
