I'm a huge Robyn fan, so anytime she's involved in a new musical project, be it a single or album release, I'm always keen to find out what she has in store.
"Trust Me," her collaboration with fellow Swede Mr. Tophat, is the first taste of the duo's forthcoming three track EP. Running at over 10 minutes, "Trust Me" is a house infused disco thumper ready made for those late night club experiences.
While the production is energetic made for dancing the night away, Robyn's soothing, pop flavored vocals elevate "Trust Me" from a good song to a great song.
Although Robyn and Mr. Tophat have known each other personally for nearly a decade, the first time they professionally crossed paths was last year, when the latter contributed a few remixes of material from Robyn’s Love Is Free EP with La Bagatelle Magique.
“I wasn’t making my own music at the time, so he forced his way into my studio and said, ‘We’re going to make music now,’” Robyn recalls the beginnings of the pair’s creative process. “It was really nice for me to be submerged into his world and lose myself in something that wasn’t my own.”
Mr. Tophat & Robyn’s Trust Me EP is out January 13.
