Robotaki – Monkey Bars Feat. Claire Ridgely
Robotaki’s “Monkey Bars” Is the Summer Hit You Haven’t Heard Yet.
As fun and lighthearted as his moniker may seem, Robotaki as an artist is as serious of a talent as they come. Out today via Majestic Casual Recordings, “Monkey Bars” feat Claire Ridgely is his newest single.
You’d be hard-pressed to identify an artist experiencing the rapid and sustained success that the Toronto-based music technician is building on. “Monkey Bars” follows two consecutive chart-topping singles in “Ghostboy” (#1 Global Viral on Spotify) and his “Shelter” remix (#1 on Soundcloud). Also named Apple Music’s Favorite New Artist of the Week,” Robotaki’s ability to create feel-good, catchy, and technically-sound music has caught the attention of peers and fans alike, with Porter Robinson and Madeon inviting him on their 36-stop national tour.
Driven by the desire to create music that will cover the whole spectrum of emotions, Robotaki opened up and had this to say about his newest single on Majestic Casual: “Monkey Bars was meant to capture the euphoria of being with someone you love during the summer. It feels like being a kid with your best friend on a playground during recess. I wanted to try and capture this carefree moment in time.”
There is a lot more behind the name and the mask than most people may perceive. Coming into the spotlight with his top-tier remix work, debut single, “Ghostboy” and consistent release schedule, Preston Chin, the man behind the moniker has prepared himself to take on an enormous task. A task that entails enveloping the world with a powerful new take on funk, disco, and electronic groove. A responsibility to brighten peoples days and to make people dance. A quest to bring a fresh musical experience to humans that has never been done before.
With a Masters degree in Anatomy and Cell Biology in tow, the intellectual has been in the studio crafting and harnessing forward thinking sounds and new ideas, to take to the world. Amidst this process, Robotaki has armed himself with an arsenal of exciting original material, remix work, and a full length story to accompany the music. Material that will change the world with its superior production, indie-pop friendly nature, and relatable narrative. Records, visual arts, and experiences that will lead listeners to question, is he super human?
