We tend to find the spring to be one of the most booming times for new music premieres. Artists are preparing their sets for their summer festival circuits, which are usually filled with a plethora of never before heard tracks. Artists of the EDM persuasion are typically fresh off their Ultra performances and are now ready to release their new music from Miami Music Week. One of those artists is the UK's own Billy Kenny. At just 26, Billy Kenny and friends are the major contributors to the independent house music label; This Ain't Bristol. The label released Kenny's latest EP just this month. The feature track is Kenny's collab with tech power duo Walker & Royce; ‘The Lonely Robot'.
The first time we heard this detonating track was in Kenny's MMW livestream presented by DJ Mag. The track is dropped around the 6:30 mark, and is later mixed in with the iconic 2000's single ‘My Milkshake‘. Since then, we have been listening to the whole set, which is phenomenal, on repeat. All while patiently waiting for Billy to release the track's original mix. Lucky for us, it only was a matter of weeks before the entire EP was released with all of Billy's latests tracks and collabs.
The track is quite short since it's an original mix, only clocking in under two minutes. The collab between the two acts perfectly exhibits each artist's personal distinction when it comes to techno music. You can evidently hear the playful sound bits that are signature to Walker & Royce. As well as more melodic synths and bass lines traditionally present in Billy Kenny originals. Overall, the track is mastered perfectly for the complexity and diversity of sounds featured.
If you like what you hear, make sure you check out the rest of Billy Kenny and Friends newest EP, as well as the rest of his soundcloud. And follow him on his socials to keep up to date on where to catch him live next.
