Alt-electro alchemist, Robert DeLong, and Canadian electro-pop phenom, Lights, join forces on new single, “Did It To Myself”. Combining their talents, this Dub Reggae-infused track (also co-written, produced and mixed by DeLong) glides between playful and dark, mimicking the self-sabotage that courses throughout the lyrics. On the story behind the song, DeLong explains, “‘Did It To Myself’ is a song, first and foremost, about the inevitable breakup and infidelity fantasies that arise in most long-term relationships, and how those thoughts can infect and poison every interaction with your partner. I had created an instrumental and emailed it off from LA to Lights who is just north of Vancouver, Canada, and she almost immediately came back with the first pass of lyrics and melody. Somehow we were both on the same wavelength at the same time, and this telepathic link allowed us to finish the song together, remotely. As I was digging into the production on the track, I was listening to lots of dub and dub-techno (Scientist, Joe Gibbs, Pole, etc.), and that influence snuck in and melded with my production, creating a swirling mass of dub FX, drum machines, and real horns (recorded by Matt Appleton of Reel Big Fish and Goldfinger!). The song follows the release of “Better in College (feat. Ashe)" released late last year to global praise including placement on Spotify’s New Music Friday in twelve countries as well as key playlist placements across Apple, Amazon, and YouTube.
