Following on from a wealth of bright and uplifting electronic compositions over the last few months, which have included the singles ‘Lost Touch’ and ‘Echoes’, as well as his official remix of Oh Wonder’s ‘Lose It’, emerging producer Joseph Robson aka Indigo Eyes now returns with his latest sweeping release ‘Forbidden’ ft. LissA.
With a natural talent for creating broad and atmospheric soundscapes, ‘Forbidden’ looks to continue the artist’s rich and dynamic aesthetic with its bold and textured direction. After first discovering his love for electronic music at the age of 15 when he snuck into a Martin Garrix performance in Ibiza, the now 19-year-old is showing a level of diversity and imagination far beyond his years. Coupling smooth and ethereal tones with shuffled beats and seductive grooves has given him an original and driven style that many are quickly beginning to take notice of.
Speaking about his new offering, he said, “I wrote Forbidden with LissA, who I’ve been a huge fan of for a long time and so already had a clear idea for what I wanted a collaboration between us to sound like. I aimed for the track to be as raw and intimate as possible and so kept the components very minimal, allowing her vocal take centre stage.”
His collaboration partner LissA (Lissa Achtermeyer) is a German singer-songwriter who saw a rise in popularity during the surge of electronic music featured on youtube during the early 2010’s, often collaborating with up and coming producers on slightly quirky / unique tracks, labelling her style of music ‘electro pop’. Since she began releasing music in 2015 she has built up over 500 thousand monthly listeners on spotify and over 50 million total streams.
Indigo Eyes is the alias of 19 year old electronic artist Joseph Robson from London, England. Starting out with childhood lessons in a number of instruments he gradually became a bedroom producer with a deep fascination in dance music and the UK house scene, with influences among the likes of Disclosure, AlunaGeorge, and SG Lewis.
Following on from this, his production style consists of warm synths and soul-oriented guitar melodies. Being a long time fan of the singer-songwriter duo ‘Oh Wonder,’ a chance encounter with their dog sitter led to an opportunity for him to develop a relationship with the duo and remix ‘Lose It,’ a fan favourite track of theirs, which, in addition to various other remixes and instrumentals, helped Joseph grow an online fan base long before his first commercial release.
Following this, he was then discovered by SG Lewis on an instagram live in the Summer of 2020, in which early demos of his music were premiered to a live audience. This led to a number of collaborative opportunities, along with praise from SG Lewis himself.
Finishing off the year with the release of his debut EP ‘Close To You’, he aims to demonstrate his eclectic sound through a set of four diverse tracks, featuring collaborations from up and coming artists ‘De Rien’ and Georgie O’Brien’ along with the already well established ‘LissA.’
