When designing Robin, the team wanted to create a phone that people loved listening to music on. The dual, front-facing speakers are loud and crisp, and one of the many reasons why we enjoy it. And, since we’re always testing our device for audio quality, you can always hear SOMETHING playing in our office!
Recently, we partnered with AiAiAi, an audio design company based in Denmark dedicated to developing high-quality headsets, to create a one-of-a-kind product we thought you would love. When the collaboration began, AIAIAI also selected a couple of renowned DJs they sponsor to work with us. As part of the project, they were asked to create unique ringtones with the design ethos of AIAIAI and Nextbit in mind.
About Lauren Lo Sung
When Lauren was younger, her older siblings would blast music that would influence her immensely. At 11, she convinced her parents to buy her beginner decks and now, the Liverpool native is working with famous DJs across the globe. She’s known for her dub techno sound, and according to Decoded Magazine, ‘weaves a heady mixture of warm sonics and complex layers of sound which wrap her audiences in a cozy blanket of happiness and joy.’ Check out Lauren's song "On My Mind" from her SoundCloud page:
Charlie Yin, AKA Giraffage, is a local SF Bay Area DJ, and record producer who has performed worldwide. His music has won praise from major publications such as FADER and his songs have been called, ‘pleasantly ambient and sample-laden instrumentals,’ and feature ‘...hip-hop-flavored 808 percussion...’ He’s released two albums (Comfort, and Needs) and EPs (Pretty Things, and No Reason). Check out Giraffage's song "Make You Love Me" on SoundCloud:
