Toyboy & Robin have just released another huge, London-style banger, "Don't Just Say." Influenced by Duke Dumont, Le Youth and other artists on the forefront of house, "Don't Just Say," follows on the heels of Toyboy & Robin's successful, super deep "Feel It (Dub)," which garnered raves and spins from fellow UK artists (and DJs) Gorgon City, Clean Bandit and Martin Ikin.
The track starts with an aggressive beat, setting the tone for what's to come. As vocal samples of a woman scorned (from Brownstone's 1993 hit "If You Love Me") and an addictive piano melody come in, the heat picks up and it becomes harder to resist movement. A drop leads to the chorus, which leads to a deeper drop before playful synth lines replace the piano in playing Toyboy & Robin's infectious melody. Drum machines come back in with Brownstone's lyrics, before the song explodes in climax and sends listeners into near ecstasy with layered sound.
The production duo is about to embark on a UK tour this fall, with stops in London, Manchester, Cambridge and Southampton. Until Toyboy & Robin make it stateside, Americans can only hope for some U.S. club love for this epic banger.
