cf premiere: frederic robinson “muscle memory” (ft. richard spaven)

Colectivo Futuro is delighted to premiere “Muscle Memory”, from producer and artist Frederic Robinson, featuring Richard Spaven on drums. A wonderful amalgamation of live instrumentation and electronics. Due to be the second single from his forthcoming EP ‘Hiding Music In Everything’, slated for release this summer on Bridge the Gap

Following the more electronic “ENGRAM”, this new track features world-renowned drummer Richard Spaven, who adds his trademark subtle yet incredibly skilful and tasty playing to Frederic’s intricate production. This is not the two musicians’ first collaboration as Frederic co-produced a couple of tracks from Richard’s last album ‘Real Time’.

According to Frederic, “‘Muscle Memory’ feels like the perfect fusion of what both Rich’s and my music is all about. It’s been a really exciting process getting all the elements together; from finding the right colors and textures for the instrumental, to locking in one of Rich’s masterful grooves. I’m so proud of what we made here and I hope you feel the love that went into it!”

After the release of his debut album “Mixed Signals” in 2013, Frederic was hailed as a “prodigy”, with listeners drawing parallels between his intricate pattern work and the minimalism of composers such as Philipp Glass, Steve Reich and Terry Riley.Garnering support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Tom Middleton, BandCamp, EarMilk, Mojo and Time Out to name a few, he went onto creating incredibly innovative live shows which he toured across Europe and supported acts such as Jon Hopkins and Tangerine Dream, to the delight of both music and technology fans.

Frederic’s sound is varied but consistent, characterized by a combination of organic instrumentation with precise electronics and lush atmospheric production on an epic scale. “Muscle Memory” is a perfect example of his development.
