Sort by: Date Artist
ROBOTIKUS - Continental Lovers     Electronic, Dance, House, Funk 31/01/2018
Influenced by the Disco, Funk, and House pioneers of the 1970’s & 80’s, ROBOTIKUS is a fresh blend of synth-pop, fused with contagious vocal-hooks, classic drum tones, and groovy guitar
A funky-heartfelt tune delivering a touch of French-house and tasteful amount of nu-disco. Backed by a smooth bass line, retro synth and Nile Rodgers-esque guitar.

A song about distance and desire; when your love is far from where you need it to be and fantasy rules your thoughts and emotions.
