Robotaki Shimmers With New Single “Limbo” feat. SHOR
Perhaps the most exciting part of being an electronic music lover is unearthing fresh new artists. There is nothing like finding a dope artist on the rise and falling in love with their catalogue. Each year brings a new freshman class of producers who are primed to leave their mark and 2018 is no different. At the head of this year’s crop of budding talent is Toronto Native Robotaki. After the success of his debut single “Ghostboy,” which hit global viral #1 on Spotify, #4 on Billboard Dance and #6 on Spotify U.S, Robotaki is ready to grab the spotlight with both hands. Today marks the release of “Limbo” featuring SHOR, the second single off of Robotaki’s forthcoming Science EP. “Limbo” provides even more evidence of this kid’s immense skills, and if you haven’t heard the name Robotaki yet, then you can thank us later.
Reminding us of some otherworldly mix of Feed Me and Cashmere Cat, Robotaki’s approach to production embodies everything that is right with the dance scene right now. Inventive, sumptuous and at times unruly, “Limbo” shimmers and sizzles in equal measure. SHOR’s ethereal falsetto adds and absolutely heartbreaking quality to this dynamic track, bringing a welcomed tinge of R&B to the equation. Robotaki shows off his wicked ability with a masterfully composed drop that rips through speakers with reckless abandon. While this track has undeniably silky smooth sections, “Limbo” is the type of tune that was made to send festival crowds wild.
Speaking on this latest tune Robotaki says:
“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.”
Keep an eye out for Robotaki’s forthcoming Science EP which will drop in late March via Casual Majestic Recordings.
