Sometimes a little experimentation is good. And not every Song of the Day should be cookie-cutter pop. So let me introduce to you Robert DeLong.
Robert first came to my attention via a post published on Kick Kick Snare (though they credit Glassnote Records for bringing him to the limelight). The song “Global Concepts” instantly piqued my interest, though if you’re like me, there was nothing that could prepare me for the unexpected electronic drop. Womp womp wobble? Sort of…
What will prevent this song from setting the blogosphere on fire could be its slightly jarring and disconnected nature. The rhythm is unique, but slightly disconnected. I can’t help but thinking it might benefit from a more “solid” sound, a la Avicii or Kaskade. Nonetheless, I find myself playing it over and over again. So clearly, something is working.
