ROBERT DELONG, Glassnote Records
Singer, songwriter, producer, programmer and drummer ROBERT DELONG's debut JUST MOVEMENT-due out January 22 as the first release for Glassnote Records in 2013--is an electronic dance album with an evocative singer-songwriter sensibility that he wrote and produced over the course of the last two years. Leading the charge is its first single "Global Concepts," out now on iTunes.
The single package features the original version of the song along with a club edit and clean and explicit radio edits, as well as b-side "One And The Same." Meanwhile, DELONG-who also lists remixer to his credits-lent his talents to Two Door Cinema Club's "Sun," incorporating punchy horn samples and complex drum patterns to morph the original version of the song for dance floors.

ROBERT DELONG, raised in the suburbs of Seattle, headed south to Los Angeles with a toolbox of Wii-motes, keyboards, and drums to develop a live rock show that CMJ Magazine claims worthy of "an 8-bit warrior, seamlessly creating danceable electro beats with his Wii Remote and Sega Genesis controller on par with the Chemical Brothers." Having performed his genre-bending songs since 2010, DELONG uses MIDI interfaces, a full drum set, drum pads, keyboards, laptops and game controllers, looping his music live to fuse electronic dance beats with striking melodies and lyrics with emotional heart. As DELONG started playing more and more shows, most recently playing the Silver Lake Jubilee in Los Angeles, The Starscape Festival in Baltimore, Maryland and opening for STRFKR, he immediately caught the attention of critics and fans alike. DELONG has also received radio play from influential rock stations such as KCRW and KROQ, where DELONG's "Happy" (also to be featured on Just Movement) peaked at #4 on the latter's Local's Only show. "Global Concepts" was also recently added to SIRIUSXM's Alt Nation programming. In November, he'll join The Faint on several of their west coast dates and round out his year with main stage slots at SnowGlobe in Lake Tahoe December 30 and Sea of Dreams in San Francisco December 31, with dates TBA in between.
