Hot on the heels of an outstanding London performance which marked his first visit to the UK, one man electro dance machine Robert DeLong announces the UK release of debut album Just Movement on 1st July through Island Records/Glassnote Records.
Live, Robert creates a full throttle electronic experience, bursting with energy, creativity and advanced technical skill which sees him incorporate MIDI interfaces, Wii controllers and joysticks into his set. Darting from drumkit to timbale, changing mics and creating live samples in one breath, to watch his live show is to watch a creative genius at work, making fans of new music heavyweights Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens at Radio 1.
A 12 track showcase of his phenomenal talent and superior technical skill, 'Just Movement' is written, produced, mixed and performed entirely by DeLong himself. His unique take on electronic dance music pushes boundaries in music production and songwriting with lyrics addressing spirituality and identity.
A dazzling collection of dance beats, pop hooks and thought-provoking queries, the album's title track kicks off with a primitive explanation of the human response to music before exploding into the raucous stomp of full on electro banger 'Global Concepts', already a favourite on Radio 1 and XFM. A tinkling triangle shimmering over the top of a brooding bass and airy female vocals on 'Perfect' contrast the wonky synths and manipulated vocal elements on 'Religious Views' to deliver an album spanning the full electro spectrum.
Tipped as a 'One to Watch' by Billboard and MTV USA, DeLong's worldwide tour is taking him from USA to Europe to Australia as well as the UK's Reading and Leeds Festivals. With Just Movement already hitting Top 20 in Billboard's Dance/Electronic Album Chart, all signals are pointing towards 2013 being a huge smash for Robert DeLong.
