About Robert DeLong: Raised in the suburbs of Seattle, Robert DeLong headed south to Los Angeles with a toolbox of Wii-motes, keyboards and drums to develop a live rock show that CMJ Magazine claims worthy of “an 8-bit warrior, seamlessly creating danceable electro beats with his Wii Remote and Sega Genesis controller on par with the Chemical Brothers.” DeLong began performing his genre-bending songs in 2010. He uses MIDI interfaces, a full drum set, drum pads, keyboards, laptops and game controllers, looping his music live to fuse electronic dance beats with striking melodies and lyrics with emotional heart.
Robert DeLong released Just Movement via Glassnote Records in 2013 to critical acclaim. DeLong has since become a mainstay in the festival and touring circuit with his one-man futuristic dance party. His incredible live show has brought him across the globe and back, playing major festivals like Lollapalooza, Coachella, Bonnaroo, SXSW, Sasquatch!, Ultra Music Festival, Reading and Leeds, Pukkelpop, Rock en Heim, Budweiser Made in America, Treasure Island Music Festival, Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, Corona Capital, Splendour in the Grass, Groovin the Moo and Stereosonic in Australia, where his hit single “Global Concepts” is certified platinum.
