This is why I think Robert DeLong is pretty effing awesome… And why I had to catch him live last week. And why I enjoyed it so much. The man’s a wizard of electronic instruments, percussion, and looping live.

DeLong

February 13, 2013

I know I’ve featured Robert DeLong previously, but it wasn’t until today that I had a chance to pop his debut album Just Movement into my car’s cd changer and BLAST that thing start to finish. And my respect and opinion of the guy just skyrocketed ten fold. No joke. This guy’s gonna make quite the impact on the “EDM” scene. Personally, I’m not very fond of the umbrella term “EDM” that has taken hold of the world, as it really does so little justice to the myriad of sounds and genres within that umbrella. I guess the same goes for pop and many other overall classifications in music, though. People who are negative then associate pop or EDM with only negative. Please, don’t do that. Don’t ever, ever do that. Anyway, just to gush some more about Robert DeLong, I’ll share this live video of him performing Just Movement track Happy and a few other goodies.

However, please know that these shares do no justice to listening to the album on quality recording, nor would it do justice to seeing him live, though I’ve got about 9 days to go before I get to do that in a small venue. It’s going to be great. DeLong is a new breed of EDM artist, or a unique artist, in anycase. I love how some of these new artists aren’t rrestricting themselves to “DJ-ing” live via knobs and buttons, but are playing instruments, singing, everything in between. In a way, it’s like what Grimes does, though their music are miles apart from each other. In my listen through the album, I found myself comparing brief moments of songs to so many artists from all kinds of music genres… Miike Snow, Two Door Cinema Club, Bag Raiders, you name it. He throws in a little dubstep on one track, a little more vocals on another… It’s some good, unpredictable stuff. 

ALBUM STREAM: Robert DeLong – Just Movement

February 2, 2013

Rising Los Angeles producer Robert DeLong is set to drop his debut album, and thanks to Billboard.com, you can stream the whole thing right now! Sure, it’s EDM, but it’s complex EDM with some kick ass vocals and beats. This guy’s real good at what he’s doing and he’s about to blow up even more. I’m really looking forward to seeing him live later this month. It’s going to be a real treat.
