From sharing the stage with Porter Robinson and Madeon to selling out his own headlining tour, Robotaki is a rising sonic powerhouse in the electronic scene. The Toronto-born producer recently unveiled his Science EP, a culmination of nearly two years of refining his craft that captures his experiences balancing graduate school, relationships, and travel.
“Trial” sets the scene for the project by pairing quick piano chops with a groovy bassline. A lively energy permeates throughout that segues seamlessly into the raw emotion of “Butterscotch” with Jaime Fine and falcxne. Jaime’s powerful vocals sail across whipping guitar riffs as one of the true standouts of the six tracks.
At the halfway mark, Robotaki recruits singer-songwriter Nevve for “Together We’re Screwed.” Ethereal chords sweeten Nevve’s wispy voice before diving into an explosive chorus that highlights Robotaki’s stellar production. “Limbo” with SHOR follows suit, bolstering impressive synth work from start to finish.
“Restless” and “Satisfied” with fellow Canadian artist City Fidelia bring the project to a triumphant close. Robotaki shines throughout Science with his ability to elegantly string together elements of pop, funk, and disco, demonstrating his versatile production style. Keep a close eye on Robotaki as he continues to impress across the board with his solo and collaborative efforts.
