For the ‘Tsuki’ release with Monkeytown, Robot has used the skills of his and various friends into five driven tracks that show a readiness for the dancefloor. Now living in LA and enjoying the California sun, his textures have become even more dense, with each sound ripened to perfection. The tiniest detail in this EP seems like a precision instrument. Even in its most delicate moments, where a track is laid bare to let one single sound fill the room, everything is in its place. Robot Koch just won the German composer award as “Best Electronic Composer of the Year.”
‘Tsuki’ features five tracks, all of them dark and heartfelt, inclined to a straighter bass drum but still far away from four to the floor. The EP also features a bunch of collaborators from different camps from all over the world. Indian producer and singer Curtain Blue (The Circus) co-produced ‘Let Me’ and ‘Erase’, the mysterious Born in Flamez, who was also featured on the Modeselektion compilation earlier this year, lends some vocal textures to the first track and upcoming German singer May gives ‘September’, a touch of soul.
‘Night Drive’ and ‘Every Motion’ feature the dark and subversive sounds of LA based producer, Schwarzmodul.
‘Tsuki’ will be released 30 January 2015 via Monkeytown Records. Check it out below.
