DT799 – Toyboy & Robin
Legendary duo Toyboy & Robin return following a brief hiatus with an original new single ‘Think It Over’ via Atlantic Records.
Since catapulting on the scene back in 2012, Toyboy & Robin have earned a reputation for releasing undeniable house anthems. With the new single marking 10 years since their rise, Toyboy & Robin describe the new single as “pop-tinged dance music” following a short break that has allowed them to return with a new sense of direction and fresh vision for their project.
Initially skyrocketing through the popular Youtube landscape on channels like Eton Messy, Subsoul, and Selected, Toyboy & Robin then kickstarted their career signing exclusively to Big Beat / Atlantic Records with anthems like Jaded, Can’t Love Me (feat. Finnli), Save Me Now (feat. Sam Wills) and more whilst remixing for Ellie Goulding, Oliver Heldens and Years & Years.
Now back to steering their signature name far and wide, Think It Over marks the first of many more Toyboy & Robin releases to come, as they get set to add more glistening gems to their impressive back catalogue. Also eagerly anticipating bringing their energy back to live sets, Toyboy & Robin are sure to reignite the show schedule that has already seen them play Amnesia in Ibiza, CRSSD in the US and Creamfields and Reading & Leeds in the UK to name a few.
Back like they’ve never left with a refined and exciting sound for 2022, Toyboy & Robin’s Think It Over boasts sweltering piano breakdowns, vibrant melodies, and energetic builds that evolve into serotonin-infused euphoria, injecting the perfect dose of summer tonic straight into your veins.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Removing our new track ‘Think It Over’ from eligibility, it would have to be John Summit’s remix of Kx5’s ‘Escape’. We loved the original and the remix is just the perfect balance between club and that accessible tech house sound.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
I think picking tracks that keep the energy and blend well, but also feel like they’re melodically different enough to have their own identity. With Toyboy & Robin, we’re always conscious of keeping the melodies fun and keeping listeners engaged.
Tell us about your next EP?
We’re actually going to be sticking with singles for the foreseeable. As much as we love EPs, the landscape of streaming and the style of music we make definitely lends itself to singles. But in terms of future releases, we’ve gone back to the original T&R DNA which is fun catchy vocals and strong upbeat melodies!
What have you got coming up?
Right now we’re in full promotion mode of our single ‘Think It Over’, but also preparing a bunch of tracks to follow up with. It was always our aim to come back with a heap of stuff in the locker, so can’t wait to share with everyone what we’ve been up to!
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
I think we’ve both been pretty overwhelmed by the support from not only friends, but fans and peers from our first outing. Deep down you’re always there thinking will anyone actually care if we start releasing music again, so the support hasn’t gone unnoticed and we just hope we can keep releasing great music that resonates with our audience.
