Before the release of the self-titled debut from London-based duo Royalty, we are treated to a fresh cut from that EP's five tracks. Championed by the likes of Dâm-Funk and Rinse FM's Alexander Nut, the outfit seems destined for big things, and the slick future-funk of "Don't Break Me" only speaks further to such predictions. Somewhere in between Daft Punk's robotic revelry, Kraftwerk's chilly minimalism, and Jimmy Edgar's austere sex appeal, you'll find Royalty's Chesca and Elliot Yorke working out deep low-end melodies, incessant dance rhythms, alien vocoder sounds, and icy synthlines—all of which perfectly create the duo's retro-futuristic motif. You can catch more of the newcomers' tunes when the Royalty EP drops on Feburary 24 as the first release from the Five Easy Pieces label.
