Marie Davidson announces ‘Work It (Soulwax Remix)’ OUT TODAY on Ninja Tune

Released today, legendary Belgian duo Soulwax – otherwise known as 2manydjs – propel Marie’s spoken text, tongue-in-cheek mantra for the workaholic generation over their own inimitable reworking of the original track.

Recently hailed by the New York Times as having become “a minor anthem [from] one of the best dance records of the year” in their recent list of “25 Songs That Matter Right Now”, Marie Davidson’s ‘Work It’ has become one of the defining tracks of her acclaimed “Working Class Woman” album. Released on Ninja Tune in 2018, the record drew high praise from the likes of The Guardian (“one of the biggest pleasures in contemporary electronic music”), Pitchfork (“a record slated in a milieu of chaos, loftiness, and beauty”), Resident Advisor (“Davidson’s catchiest material to date”), and was cited as one the releases of the year by the New York Times, Pitchfork, Mixmag, Resident Advisor, Crack Magazine, FACT, Pop Matters, The Quietus, Bandcamp and many more.

Today’s release follows on from remixes by Nina Kraviz, Daniel Avery, John Talabot and Afrodeutsche in recent months. Catch Marie playing live at upcoming dates in Mexico, Japan and the US, as well as a host of festivals this summer including Primavera, Dekmantel, Nuits Sonores and Field Day in London.
