The Download: Step into Robotaki’s ‘Science’ Lab
From being plastered on the front page of Apple Music to making New Music Friday on Spotify, Robotaki’s Science EP is flying out the gates and I wanted to make sure you had a chance to listen. It’s beautifully complex and tells the incredibly relatable story behind the emergence of an artist that has been through the gauntlet of obstacles over the course of his rapidly developing career. From earning his Master’s Degree at McGill, touring with Porter and Madeon, selling out his debut headlining tour, and more, this is a man on a mission and the Science EP tells his story in the most artistic and cohesive way possible. Don’t waste any more time… step into Robotaki’s lab and prepare to be amazed.
“This new EP is a big personal step for me for many reasons. The tracks in this EP were made over the course of almost 2 years during drastically different times of my life. When I was working on the first track, I didn’t even have the concept of an EP in my mind yet, I was still in graduate school doing genetics, was in a relationship, living in a different city. Since then, my life went through a lot of change: I made the decision to pursue music over academia after having studied sciences for basically all my life, I went through a tough long distance relationship after feeling in love, I moved from Montreal to Toronto. I’m quite an anxious person (seriously, I pace a LOT) so the only way I could mentally deal with these kinds of events was to make music. This EP, therefore, is essentially a cathartic release for me. “Science” is out now, everywhere around the world and it feels crazy.” – Robotaki
