I caught part of Robert Delong’s set at Live 105 fest BFD just a couple days ago, and as always, the one man wonder was spectacular on stage, with his heaps and heaps of mind boggling equipment and endless cords. Having followed this man’s electronic career for a few years now, I’m absolutely thrilled that his recent single Long Way Down has lifted him to even more splendorous levels of accolade and reverence. Some very cool remixes of the song have also surfaced in the interim, and the latest edit to delight my ears is a liquid drum and bass remix by London’s Breakage, who gives the track a pensive twist with rolling percussion and a more expansively spacious approach. There’s a more solemn profoundness to Breakage’s Long Way Down, one that leaves me in a reflective, thoughtful mood.

I’m so incredibly happy that Robert Delong has gained some major traction with his recent single Long Way Down, after my friends and I have been huge fans of his work for some time now. Every time we catch Robert live, he drops our jaws with the sheer amount of drums and equipment he utilizes, solo, on stage. For a superb new remix of Long Way Down, we turn to Sean Glass, the son of Glassnotes Records founder Daniel Glass. The remix, which premiered on KCRW over the weekend, is a disco house laced take on the electronic jam. Choppy vocals and a thrilling tempo make for an instant banger. The remix is Sean Glass’ first release as a producer, and it’s a sign of much to come, I’m sure.

I can’t believe it’s already been more than a year since we’ve enjoyed anything new from Washington electronic talent Robert DeLong. His debut album Just Movement was such a gem filled, hook laden treat, carrying plenty of lively electronic pop songs. On top of that, everything was even more terrific live, when Robert DeLong would demonstrate his one man skills: singing, drumming, skillfully utilizing endless electronic equipment, and playing music like he plays video games, on stage (using x-box controllers and other cool items to play his music). Come November 6, Robert will grace San Francisco again with his presence, playing a Popscene set at the Rickshaw. Apparently, he has some new material to delight us with, including this new single, Long Way Down. It’s the title track off an EP coming November 10, and its one of his mid-tempo, less dance leaning tunes, still electric, but more gritty and dark. In fact, I find myself reminded of Dan Croll, just more far more synthy.
