@rickyreed wanna get down on some West African polyrhythms?
Robert DeLong (born February 18th 1986)

The full daily schedule has now been announced for Forecastle 2015.
Forecastle Festival has finally completed its 2015 line-up and announced the full day-by-day schedule for the coming event, which is set to hit Louisville, Kentucky yet again in July. Plus, you'll very soon be able to purchase single day tickets for each day.
Joining the stellar line-up headlined by the already announced Sam Smith, locals My Morning Jacket and Widespread Panic are The War On Drugs, ZZ Ward, Robert DeLong and Mariachi el Bronx among a handful of others. With such talent expected every day between July 17th and 19th, 2015 is shaping up to be an important year for Forecastle.
The Black Keys, The Killers and Outkast are among this year's headliners at Hangout.
Alabama's sun-soaked, sold-out Hangout Music Fest begins officially today (May 16th 2014) following yesterday's kick-off party - and there's almost too much fun to take in.
Set against the glorious backdrop of Gulf Shores' pure white beaches, this festival truly is the place to 'hang out' this weekend with top headliners The Black Keys, The Killers, Outkast and Jack Johnson leading the talent-studded bill. Acts such as Jack Antonoff's latest project Bleachers, CLASSIXX and Bonobo's DJ set went down a storm at the Discover Great Thursday Kickoff Party, but don't worry if you missed it because things are getting even better over the rest of the weekend.
Headliners The Black Keys open the festival today

North Carolina's Mountain Oasis festival is showing some love for British electronic artists such as Gary Numan and Disclosure.
The 2013 Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit brings another year of eclectic electronics with rather a large helping of Britain filling up the line-up!
Headlining this amazing festival in Asheville, North Carolina on the last weekend of October (25th-27th 2013) is Nine Inch Nails; unsurprisingly, given their impressive headlining record this year which includes Lollapalooza, Leeds & Reading Festival, Outside Lands and Rock en Seine. Also scraping the top of the bill are Bassnectar and Pretty Lights, but there's something particularly British about a good chunk of the bands that follow.
Voodoo Festival will hit New Orleans' City Park at the beginning of November - get your timetable ready!
The fourteenth annual Voodoo Music + Arts Experience is swiftly approaching and we can now reveal the day-by-day schedule of the event's exciting line-up.
The first day of the festival (Friday, November 1st) sees the main Ritual stage host the likes of BET award-winning duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis at 7:15pm, just ahead of Pearl Jam's exciting headline spot, while Macclesfield trio The Virginmarys will be bringing in the earlier crowds around 3:45. The Le Plur stage will feature electronic producers Boys Noize and Calvin Harris at 6:15 and 7:30 respectively, while the soulful tones of Allen Stone and ZZ Ward will be resonating over on Flambeau. The Carnival stage will also have some interesting sounds emanating from it over the first day, with Nashville rock 'n' rollers Those Darlins appearing early on in the afternoon ahead of California 6-piece Youngblood Hawke and chiptune band Anamanaguchi closing the stage at 8:15.

Robert DeLong's various online biographies make much of his development from adolescent drummer into an indie rock sticks-for-hire; some of the evidence, however, suggests his recent shift from worthy to worldly was less a leap than a calculated step. Exhibit A in support of this hypothesis is the final mini album from his college band Denouement; rather than the pleasant throwaway jangle of, say, The Drums, half of Cartography - especially the title track - sounds like it was created by weirdy beardy dream poppers Animal Collective on an afternoon off.
With his "new" all digital identity surfacing in 2010 complete with an orange X slapped all over his face and t-shirts, Just Movement arrives in good time to surf the EDM wave currently making young Americans reach deliriously for their glowsticks.
As Brits, it's easy to be a little snooty about our trans-Atlantic brothers finally discovering about getting out of it to get into it thirty years too late. But whilst there's bucketloads of insipid filler to be had over there, Delong shows instead how to twist things up, the moombahton-dirty bass of Global Concepts and his sweary YOLO mission statement bound to put off the Ivy League crowd. The title track is more precise and underplayed, but still its own peculiar brand of anthemic synth pop with bite.

Robert DeLong is certainly a product of his time, enhancing and utilising every piece of modern gadgetry available to produce his unique blend of elaborate and engaging electronica. The multi-talented singer-songwriter, producer, programmer and drummer from LA even incorporates his use of gaming remotes into his imaginative and contemporary live sets. It's easy to see why he's on the 'one to watch list' of MTV and Billboard. The 'future of Rock N' Roll' (is not) '97X, Bam' but it might well be Robert Delong.
'Just Movement' is a stunning 5 track album sampler from Delong that contains some fantastic material. It is the perfect precursor to his full album release later this year and a fabulous introduction to a formidable artist.
The first track of the five is 'Global Concepts'. Here Delong shows us just why he is being heralded not only as a great arranger and producer, but also a great song writer. This is not electronic music that added some inconsequential lyrics; this is the fully formed, thought provoking, intellectualised, high end article. "I think it burns my sense of truth, To hear me shouting at my youth, I need a way to sort it out, After I die, I'll reawake, Redefine what was at stake". The beats are creatively diverse, the bleeps and beeps inventive and effective and the hooks and rhythms just masterful.
