Having just wrapped up his own headlining tour last week, Robert DeLong is slowly but surely becoming a household name in the EDM world. Mixing his musical influences from his days growing up on the West Coast with passionate lyrics and his stellar musicianship, DeLong has managed to master an electronic sound unlike any other. His latest album Just Movement is already in stores, and with one listen to Global Concepts, you’ll see exactly why we’re glad that we’ve been seeing his signature “X” logo pop up on the stages of Coachella, Ultra, SXSW, and Made In America. He’ll be on tour with Twenty One Pilots starting October 17th, so grab your tickets HERE while you can.
