The masterminds behind the decks and driving forces behind their own label, My Favorite Robot are raising a glass to commemorate 10 years of My Favorite Robot Records. 2018 marked a decade of hard work for Toronto-based underground electronic music bosses Jared Simms and Voytek Korab
“It still amazes me every day that something we started without any grand expectations became such a globally respected brand and took us on such an amazing adventure in life. Very grateful to everyone involved in the last 10 years. Here’s to the next 10!” – Voytek Korab, MFR
With a steady flow of new music since last year’s Wants Some EP and January’s ‘Femur Loveseat’ track, April saw the release of ‘Pink Horror’ on My Favorite Robot Records. The 3 track EP features an original single, an immediately thoughtful track with sombre chords smeared over nimble, upbeat drums. The synths evolve into busier patterns, and breathy vocals add an air of detached ruefulness that marries with the driving kicks to carry you away into the night on an emotive groove.

Also featured are Scandinavian talent Jori Hulkkonen,with many releases of his own on My Favorite Records, and Entschuldigung, who offer their own take on the track through their character infused remixes.
