The new single from New York synth noodler My Robot Friend features a pretty special guest star. Alison Moyet of Yazoo fame (actually, I feel a bit mean saying “of Yazoo fame” ‘cos she’s had a hell of a solo career, but if you’re reading this blog you’re probably most familiar with her work with Vince Clarke in Yazoo) picks up the mic to drop her soulful, instantly recognisable, voice over MRF’s electronics.
The end result, originally featured on My Robot Friend’s ‘Soft-Core’ album, does have a bit of a Yazoo vibe to it, and that can never be a bad thing! The single is backed up with a reMix package from the likes of Kingdom, Solvent, Alex Smoke and DFA’s resident Housemeisters The Juan MacLean, who get into some deep, deep House with the track.
The ‘Waiting’ single was released this week.
