Robotaki releases second track off of forthcoming EP

Toronto native Preston Chin, otherwise known as Robotaki, has gained considerable momentum thanks to a number of hit singles and a unique sound that blends disparate genres. As his ascent continues, Chin announced his debut EP, Science, on the heels of his U.S. tour with Manila Killa.

Chin has now dropped the second track from the full EP, “Limbo.” The producer commented on everything that went into producing the song, and those who have seen him live with undoubtedly recognize the catchy tune.

Limbo is a track I’ve been opening my sets with for the past couple shows. I made it during a strange time in my life when I was floating between several binaries relating to my career, relationship at the time, and self-esteem. It’s a frustrating time but also a sadly beautiful one that I hope a lot of people can relate to. This theme shaded many decisions that went into this release, like the repetitive motif that basically plays all throughout but reoccurs in very different ways. Limbo is both my hardest and most vulnerable track to date.

Fans can certainly sense these emotions and thematic reoccurrences throughout the track. Robotaki’s next single from the EP is set to drop on March 31st.

Robotaki – Restless

In line with its title, Robotaki‘s latest bowed as a result of restlessness ahead of his upcoming EP. Either a “leak” or an “early unreleased demo,” “Restless” is an intriguing new original from the producer that is sure to work fans’ anticipation up.

A mellow opening that borders on glitchy with its sample work eases listeners into a palpable groove. Soon, however, the producer opens up his filters and calls upon streaking waves of synths to ramp up the energy in a bouncing drop.

His ability to meld the subdued with the energetic to form a style complete his own is what sets Robotaki apart in a crowded field. As if the early release weren’t enough to pique interest across electronic music, Robotaki made “Restless” available for a free download.

Super8 & Tab have been on a self-proclaimed “meaningful musical journey together” for the past two years in preparation for their third studio album, Reformation Part 1, out Feb. 23. Today, the Finish trance duo share an uplifting, ethereal tune featuring Envy Monroe as the fourth single off the album.

After an exciting journey opening for Madeon and Porter Robinson‘s Shelter Live tour, Robotaki shows off his playful side in a chill, synth-laden electro-pop track, “Together We’re Screwed.” The producer enlists the warm vocals of Nevve on this charming, catchy jaunt.

Parisian producer Mercer taps Ron Carroll’s satisfying vocals out now on Spinnin’ Records.

Riot Ten‘s first single off his forthcoming EP, The Dead, comes as a hard-hitting dubstep production with Sullivan King and DJ Paul from Three Six Mafia. Moshers: proceed with caution to the middle of the dance floor.

Born Dirty proves himself the master of breaks once again in his newest release on Insomniac Records. With an eclectic mix of musical influences, Born Dirty constructs his signature hybrid sound resting on a solid backbone of hip-hop, house and techno. “Crazy” is a must-listen tune.

Continuing his hot streak of hits, Robotaki has unleashed a fresh take on Capital Cities‘ “Vowels.”

Last year, after a long period of inactivity, Capital Cities announced new music was in the works, leading to the release of “Vowels” in September 2016. Many soccer and video game enthusiasts may recall the tune from its inclusion in the FIFA 17 soundtrack. One year later, Robotaki’s taken the already-funky track and bolstered it with a grooving bassline and a disco-inspired beat.

“Vowels was one of my favorite records of the summer. My good friend [Hotel Garuda] introduced me to it and I’ve been hooked ever since. When they sent over the accapella I knew I had to bring it back to 2008 and go Blog Haus.”

The producer is currently on tour with Manila Killa, with four dates left in their “I Want You” tour. Next week takes them to Denver and Washington D.C., and the following week takes them to Toronto and Chicago to wrap up the tour.
