21.7.19 | Real Good Fight - Skynem GT Remix 



The winner of Robert's recent "Real Good Fight" remix contest is Skynem GT aka Peruvian producer Jordan Artega. 

The track will be released as a remix single on August 9, followed by a remix EP featuring a host of remixes by different producers.

Speaking about the winning entry, Robert said: "It stood out as being more than just a remix, even at demo stage - and since then I have worked with this producer in his tireless effort to turn out a remix that matched his vision and mine".

He added: "This single was always about an experimental moment for me, deviating from my recent country output, and now seems like the perfect time to fully embrace that by collaborating with new names in the EDM community".

31.5.19 | Pop, Rinse, Repeat Review 


"Real Good Fight" has received a glowing review from music blog Pop, Rinse, Repeat.

"You can hear that he does this because there's no where else he'd want to be and nothing better that he'd rather be doing. He's not doing it because it's going to bring him fame and fortune, he does it because it's part of who he is. I wasn't familiar with Robert before this video but I've stepped back through his other works and it's just honest songwriting and the world needs a whole lot more of that".
