Rob Naylor – Head North/Forever City EP [Garuda Music]
17-year-old newcomer Rob Naylor has unleashed his second EP titled Head North/Forever City on Garuda Music that’s out now on Beatport.
The Montreal-based DJ’s debut track “Yes”, shot up the Beatport Top 100 Trance chart in July and saw support from big names like Gareth Emery, Markus Schulz and Ben Gold.
‘Forever City’ and ‘Head North’ both capture the big room energy of ‘Yes,’ but with a higher focus on the melodies. While ‘Forever City’ has a harder edge, ‘Head North’ delves deep into the classic trance realm with an upbeat, retro feel.

“Melodies are what I’ve always been in love with,” Rob said. “I also tried to incorporate some ‘oldskool’ sounds in the productions, as I had been really listening to a lot of older EDM during that period. I feel like these two are another step towards developing myself as an artist.”
Rob’s latest tracks have taken off at a galloping start, with ‘Head North’ already receiving radio support from Gareth Emery (TGEP 248), Armin van Buuren (ASOT 626), Paul Van Dyk (VONYC 365) and Andy Moor (Moor Music 104), and ‘Forever City’ premiering on Gareth Emery Presents on Sirius XM.
