10-minute album sampler:

Following two stunning singles, prodigiously talented producer and composer Frederic Robinson is set to drop his debut album, ‘Mixed Signals’, on Blu Mar Ten Music on 14th October. The album is the culmination of over a year’s work and a lifetime of musical obsession for Robinson, comprising of a series of intricately crafted and delicately emotive tracks exploring a forward-thinking electronic vision, which he describes as "music for the listener with a broad horizon and a short attention span”.

Over its eleven tracks, ‘Mixed Signals’ gives Robinson the canvas to showcase the full breadth of his talents like never before. Amalgamating the many influences that inform his productions, from drum & bass and electronica to contemporary classical composers, ‘Mixed Signals’ is a brilliantly crafted and coherent artistic statement that draws upon his talents as a classically trained multi-instrumentalist as well as an electronic producer. Filled with light and shade, impact and intricacy, ‘Mixed Signals’ is much more than a drum & bass record or a collection of club tracks; this is an album in the truest sense of the word.

Built from a collage of acoustic and electronic elements, Robinson’s music is a dense patchwork of skittering rhythms, found sound and lush instrumentation, which harnesses a compelling emotional draw as much as it does an undeniable dance floor energy. Both immediate and nuanced, ‘Mixed Signals’ is a brilliant balance of contrasts.

The sweeping drama of previous single ‘Theme Park’ opens the album, remaining as fresh and brilliantly unique as ever, while ‘Off Topic’ and ‘Bloom’ featuring Stray both also provide familiar touchstones, exploring esoteric manifestations of 170 bpm’s outer possibilities. Three vocal tracks are scattered throughout the tracklist, with the soft, otherworldly tones of Melanie Robinson providing an entry point to Robinson’s world of broken percussion and wandering melodies.

Elsewhere, ‘Vamp Till Ready’ balances rich string orchestration against a wave of skittering percussion and ‘Shut’ offers an expansive beauty in its naïve, dreamlike melodies. ‘Particles’ showcases an innate understanding of drum & bass constructs, warping tight breaks and deep bass against bold blasts of colour while the eponymous track explores a playfully off-kilter and delicately nuanced downtempo vision, before the album is played out on wave of hazy melodies and light-footed rhythms with closer ‘Static Float’.

‘Mixed Signals’ provides the broad canvas that Robinson thrives in painting with his sprawling musical influences and complex arrangements, and the results are phenomenal. The album is a masterpiece in dance floor escapism from a talent whose career is undoubtedly in the ascendant.
