Rising producer Robotaki (aka Preston Chin) returns with a ‘Together We’re Screwed’ after taking a number of months out to record new material in the studio.
The song features the light-hearted vocals by Nevve who is quickly establishing herself as the go to singer on EDM productions, as well as easy synths and a brewing bassline.
“This song started as a remix but I loved the instrumental so much I wanted to keep it. We tried singer after singer but nothing clicked. One day Nevve sent over some ideas, and with her voice, it instantly clicked. To me, the dynamic across the lows and highs in this track reflect the complexities of love, the tribulations of lust, and everything that falls in between. The turn of the new year has me feeling good, and like now is the right time to put this out in to the world.”
It’s out now on Majestic Casual Recordings.

Dear Lorde. Please meet your male match. Toronto-based Est-Her.
Est-Her left his career as a professional ballet dancer to pursue music. His sophomore release ‘Last Minute Wedding’ was produced with French producer Porter Elvinger and arrives with a highly intense short film self-directed alongside Ram Accoumeh.
Speaking about his writing process, Est-Her explains,
“When I’m writing, I always have some film playing in the background. When I finish each track, I splice together these supercuts from either scenes of films that I love, or random clips I think best suits the song. For ‘Last Minute Wedding,’ I started compiling a ton of home movies of weddings taped on VHS, and sped them up to look like a flip book.”
Sounds like: Lorde, Talos, The 1975, GEMS, Deptford Goth, Dan Flynn

80’s music lover, RALPH, is questioning whether there is ‘Something More’ in her new track, asking whether the grass is always greener?
“‘Something More’ was inspired by Aziz Ansari’s Netflix show ‘Master of None’,” explains RALPH, continuing “The show honestly narrates the existential issues faced by young adults now. Consumed with social media and dating apps, we’re obsessed with the idea of something more or someone better, often leading us to sabotage the good things we have.”
