Out Via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective

On the heels of his first EP single “All I Can Do,” Robotaki releases new single “Meant To Be” via Foreign Family Collective ahead of his forthcoming EP Anachronism.

Listen to Robotaki – Meant to Be

“Meant To Be” marks the latest chapter of Toronto-based producer Robotaki’s triumphant musical journey. Touring extensively with acts like Porter Robinson and Madeon, and debuting his live show The Experiment in 2018, the artist has demonstrated his ability to bring authentic and engaging live performances to some of the world’s most notable cities and venues like New York’s Terminal 5 and LA’s Teragram Ballroom. Initially beginning with top-tier remix work for acts like Phoenix, Empire of The Sun, and Daft Punk, he’s showed listeners the level of inventiveness and versatility he possesses as an artist and creator, but now shows that he can deliver uniquely crafted tracks. His infectious compositions take from pop and funk influences, creating a dynamic sound that transcends the constructs of the genre. All in all, Robotaki represents Foreign Family Collective’s mission to sign some of the most innovative artists that grace the electronic realm.

“Meant To Be” sits atop indie electronic foundations giving Preston a space to reflect upon the complexities of love and heartbreak. In contrast to his previous release, the focus remains on newfound freedom that comes with ending a relationship, echoing nostalgic lyricism over a moody electric guitar and downtempo synth work. The release of this single directly follows Robotaki’s documentary The Experiment which takes a deep dive into Preston as a person and creative mastermind.

In Preston’s words:

‘Meant To Be’ is a track I wrote about all the people I’ve seen on the edge of either starting a relationship, or ending one. As a stubborn over-thinker myself, I’ve been on both sides of this and, in either situation, have always overly complicated things for myself. There’s a lot of unnecessary noise when you’re constantly wondering whether a person is the right one for you. This song is a reminder to just let these things happen, enjoy the moments you share with others, and be free.

Joining Big Wild and Mild Minds for a huge trek across North America, Robotaki kicks off 2019 bringing his show to cities like Los Angeles, Detroit, New York, and more. Robotaki continues off the traction of this tour joining San Holo for a number of shows and ODESZA for Camp Nowhere.
