Track Premiere: Toyboy & Robin ft. Nikki Cislyn – ‘Back & Forth’

What a year 2013 was for London’s Toyboy & Robin. While the über-infectious ‘Jaded‘ was turning heads left, right and centre, the pair still found the time to drop a plethora of great music – Armeria, Panda, Skanky – via their own Cool Kid Music imprint, and to hit the road with fellow tastemakers Eton Messy to boot. If, the Nikki B-featuring ‘Back & Forth’ is anything to go by, the stakes are only going to be raised further in 2014.

As you’d probably gather from its title, ‘Back & Forth’ has some serious swagger to it: arpeggiated vocals bounce vigorously atop a slick groove that just won’t let up in its quest to get you moving. Throw in a wonderfully sultry guest turn from Gorgon City and Clean Bandit collaborator Nikki Cislyn and you’ve got guaranteed club fire.

The track serves as an introduction to the pair’s forthcoming Better Places EP, which also features guest turns from fast-rising Brightoner Alex Adams and PlanetNotion favourite FEMME. You can check out a tracklist for that, and stream ‘Back & Forth’ in full below:
