How do you shoe-gaze to EDM? ‘Dance’ is in the acronym! It’s difficult to comprehend how you take a sort of loner, artsy culture and combine it with a club, house culture – but that’s what we’ve got here. It’s closer to Boards of Canada than it is to Deadmau5, but it’s still groovy.
SPIN put it this way: “Is this some great schism? Doubtful. While this is a songwriting departure, it’s not so much a sonic one — the bass is still concussive, the saw-tooth synths still assaultive — plus Robinson’s still cashing checks from the Vegas mega-clubs.”
