Swedish house maestro Mr. Tophat and pop phenomenon Robyn have come together for “Trust Me,” a sleek three track EP of dark disco and luscious grooves, featuring contributions from Abba’s original drummer, Per Lindvall, and his brother, bassist David Lindvall. With each track going well beyond the nine-minute mark, “Trust Me” is the artistic culmination of two artists joining together in the studio and putting pure inspiration to tape, resulting in some of the loosest and most intriguing music either has made in their careers. Although Robyn and Mr. Tophat have known each other personally for nearly a decade, the first time they professionally crossed paths was last year, when the latter contributed a few remixes of material from Robyn’s “Love Is Free” EP with La Bagatelle Magique.
Mr. Tophat feat. Robyn’s “Trust Me” EP is out January 13th via Smalltown Supersound and available for pre-order now. After sharing the EP’s title track, the duo now presents “Right Time,” which shuffles and slithers with a jet- black slickness as Robyn toasts and intones over the rhythms.
