Canadian electronic music pioneer Peaches has remixed Romy’s “Did I”, taken from her universally acclaimed 2023 debut album Mid Air. It sees the pair, who share a longstanding mutual appreciation of each other’s music, collaborating for the very first time on an electro-tinged remix that features an exclusive new verse from Peaches herself. Meanwhile, Peaches joined Romy on stage last week (29th March) to perform the track as part of Romy’s sold-out headline show at New York’s Knockdown Center . It was a full circle moment for Romy, whose first ever gig was seeing Peaches perform live.

Speaking about the remix, Romy says:

“Peaches is an absolute icon and has inspired me in so many ways over the years. Peaches was one of the first gigs I ever went to and I’ve never forgotten her energy onstage, her lyrics, production and how she continuously pushes boundaries for the better. With this project I wanted to celebrate queer dance music and I couldn’t think of an artist who embodies this more than Peaches, I’m honoured that she has not only remixed Did I but added a verse too!”

With Peaches adding “We’ve always had a great admiration for each other and this was the perfect moment to collaborate”

Romy today also announces a run of north American Club Mid Air headline shows in August, which take in Washington, Vancouver, Seattle and Portland. Next week (10th and 11th April), Romy will also play two hometown Club Mid Air shows at London’s legendary Roundhouse venue, featuring a personally curated line up that includes Angel D’Lite, Desire, Sherelle and Lil C B2b Lagoon Femshayma, ahead of a busy summer of festival shows that include UK appearances at Glastonbury, Field Day and Forwards festivals.

Meanwhile, following Mid Air’s release in September, Romy has received a host of accolades including recent nominations for the 2024 BRITs (“Best Dance Act”) and GRAMMY (“Best Dance / Electronic Recording”) awards. She also recently played her biggest American headline shows to date – at Los Angeles’ 4000 capacity Hollywood Palladium (27 March) and New York’s 3200 capacity Knockdown Center (29 March).

Mid Air was one of 2023’s most rapturously received debuts, described by NME as “extraordinary”, the Wall Street Journal as “one of the year’s best pop records” and by the New Yorker as “one of the most confident dance records of recent years”. Meanwhile The i Newspaper added another five star review, proclaiming the album “a lightning bolt of queer bliss” and Rolling Stone UK celebrated Romy as “a singularly brilliant dance talent in her own right”. Working alongside producers Fred again.. and Stuart Price, as well as Romy’s bandmate Jamie xx, Mid Air is an album that deals with love, grief, relationships, identity and sexuality and is a love letter to the queer clubs where Romy found community and connection. It’s a coming-out album in a way, although she came out in her personal life a long time ago, but it’s also a coming-through album – through grief and heartache, towards euphoria. Mid Air is an album that unifies dancefloors, distilling Romy’s love of club classics and classic song writing and finding the sweet spot – like much of Romy’s favourite music – between euphoria, escapism, sadness and melancholy.
