Jay Robinson Delivers Impressive House Music Collab With Idris Elba, “Know Yourself”

Home to Jay Robinson’s hit “Nineteen81” and Wear Black EP, mau5trap boasts home to the producer’s newest.

Teaming up with Idris Elba to deliver an impressive house music feat, Jay Robinson’s “Know Yourself” is available via the deadmau5-run mau5trap.

A four-on-the-floor club ready hit, “Know Yourself” is a powerful showcase of Jay Robinson’s finest talents. Fueled by a driving kick drum, tight hats, and siphoning bass, Robinson illuminates his undeniable tech-house mastery throughout his five-minute work. Enlisting none other than Idris Elba to complete the sinister song, the pair’s production and vocal dominion offer a robust narrative. Idris Elba’s motivating vocals juxtapose against a dark, fleeting bassline, as a strong sentiment of “What you need to do is know yourself/What you need to do is be you” reverberates powerfully.

No stranger to the mau5trap label, Jay Robinson’s past projects on the deadmau5-run operation include the producer’s Wear Black EP and “Nineteen81,” as well as remixes of Joy Downer’s “Plastic Wrap” on we are friends vol. 009, and most recently, a sonic remix of deadmau5’s “COASTED.”

“’Know Yourself’ is one of those records I never thought would make it past being a VIP in my sets. To see it getting a full release on mau5trap with a full feature from Idris Elba feels truly surreal!” – Jay Robinson
