Throughout his career, Robert has worked on all sides of the music industry, from promotion and documentary coverage, to video production, to music-making. The artist has produced two full-length releases as well as an EP, all of which are currently available on iTunes and Spotify. As we discussed in our previous feature of Robert’s concerts, recordings, and publications, Robert’s music is mostly electronic, with elements of downtempo, chill lounge, and world music genres.

The nature of music production and coverage means that much of Robert’s body of work has been collaborative. Whether it’s co-hosting a radio show, co-writing a song or track, or coordinating events with other DJs and producers, the artist is always working together with other music lovers.
