EDITORS’ NOTES

“Did I make money? Was I proud? Did I play my songs too loud? Did I leave my life to chance or did I make you (expletive) dance?” While many electronic musicians let the beats do the talking, Robert DeLong goes deep in lyrical content. Our Editors' Choice, Just Movement expands the PLUR mentality to include meditations on spirituality (“Few Years Make” and “Religious Views”) and identity (“Global Concepts,” quoted above, and “Basically I”)—all the while pounding dance floors into submission. DeLong is a rare commodity—adept at melting faces while leaving the brain stem intact.
