The Long Ear

Having recently opened her account on Ubiquity Records with the brilliant, Bali-inspired single 'Kete', Rose Robinson returns as Tigerbalm with another snapshot of her forthcoming debut album, International Love Affair. As with it's predecessor, 'Waiheke' gleefully blurs the boundaries between contemporary club music and the rising star's love of rhythms and musical cultures from around the world. All of the tracks on International Love Affair were specifically inspired by places Robinson has visited pre and post-pandemic. 'Waiheke' is no exception, with Robinson starting work on the track following an inspirational trip to the Flamingo Pier festival on Waiheke Island, New Zealand. Once again, the track is rooted in the London-based producer, DJ and multi-instrumentalist's deep love of delay-laden 21st century disco, organic house and deep electronic club cuts. Pairing these influences with African-influenced percussion and sampled chants, Robinson delivers a sparkling fusion of Afro-cosmic and dubbed-out nu-disco rich in sparkling synth sounds and warm, weighty bass. Appropriately, Robinson's original Tigerbalm take on 'Waiheke' is backed with a wealth of inspired remixes tailored to tantalise and tease a variety of dancefloors. 'Waiheke', then, is another sublime single from an artist whose distinctive personal style is rightly winning plaudits from across the musical spectrum. Her soon-come debut album is one you won't want to miss.
