Jay Robinson combines with Idris Elba on “Know Yourself”


Home to Jay Robinson’s hit “Nineteen81” and Wear Black EP, mau5trap boasts home to the producer’s newest release. Teaming up with Idris Elba to deliver an impressive house music feat, Jay’s “Know Yourself” is available on now via the deadmau5-run mau5trap.

A four-on-the-floor club-ready hit, “Know Yourself” is a powerful showcase of Jay Robinson’s finest talents. Fueled by a driving kick drum, tight hats, and siphoning bass, Robinson illuminates his undeniable tech-house mastery throughout his five-minute work. Enlisting none other than Idris Elba to complete the sinister song, the pair’s production and vocal dominion offer a robust narrative. Idris’s motivating vocals juxtapose against a dark, fleeting bassline, as a strong sentiment of “What you need to do is know yourself/What you need to do is be you” reverberates powerfully.

“’Know Yourself’ is one of those records I never thought would make it past being a VIP in my sets. To see it getting a full release on mau5trap with a full feature from Idris Elba feels truly surreal!” – Jay Robinson

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
