Some things don’t change, like Andrez Bergen’s love for things robotic.

The name of his new EP is ‘Robota’, and Little Nobody shanghaied Japanese producer Toshiyuki Yasuda (one of Si Begg’s favorite musicians, and who just finished working with Señor Coconut, aka Atom Heart) into the arrangement, to do gorgeous, robot-style vocoder vocals as Robo*Brazileira.

The music and the melancholic robot lyrics have been composed by Bergen; both have also been remixed by Japanese outfit Dick Drone, and Bergen’s other alterego, Funk Gadget.

It’s oh-so-‘80s, with the added twist of a barnstorming tech/electro contemporary mentality – slamming and melodic, all at once, a dazzling dancefloor rocker that drifts into a hot-wired epiphany.

Think shades of Jean Michel Jarre on ‘Zoolook’ [1984], Kraftwerk, the Cylons from the original series of Battlestar Galactica, Electric Light Orchestra, Herbie Hancock, and the ‘80s theme music for Doctor Who, compressed and shaken up by a production outfit as fond of Underground Resistance and Surgeon as he is of Si Begg and Luke Vibert.

Completely innovative and quite unlike anything you think you may have heard before, this is machine-based disco-funk-tech for the next decade.

Styles: Disko-Funk-Tech.

  3. I love mix 1, and mix 3 too… ‘Robota’ is massive. It’s a fantastic release, and I love this new (and sudden), L.N. direction… funky and metallic, this is space-tech!!!

  4. These songs are BAD ASS – kinda has that industrial club sound going on… or German electro.. its SIK!!!!!! I love vocoder vocals too, though… Nice work as always…

  5. This is awesome. Love the big Phil Collins industrial snare, and that stab after the snare roll; love the beat, kinda rock/hip-hop. The vox are SICK. It reminds me of, especially when he repeats “Robota”, a UR track, umm… you know, and the vocals are “I am black, electric. I am strong, electric”?? ANYWAY. The track rocks IMO. It needs releasing!
