Not an EDM record

15 Nov, 2014

Robinson says his nearly-completed album will not be ‘the next big EDM’ album. It keeps the ‘pretty vibe’ of releases like Language and his collaboration with Mat Zo, Easy, but adds influences by artists like M83, Sleigh Bells, Daft Punk and Kanye West:

I wanted a vintage sound. Something that was a little more lo-fi-inspired. It has a bunch of weird tempos that dance people aren’t really doing. There’s no DJ-friendly intro and outro. It’s meant to be listening music. It’s not a party record at all.
