Shit Robot’s got an album coming in September, and from the tracks I’ve heard so far, it’s really good. On the downside he’s called it ‘From The Cradle to the Rave’, which is a pun nearly as bad as Dodgy (remember them ? don’t worry if you don’t kids, I believe they got mercy culled from existence sometime back in ‘the day’) calling their pot addled 90s opus ‘Free Peace Sweet’.
Making up for suspect album titles, Mr Robot is giving away this TBD remix of I Found Love, and a good ‘un it is too, brilliantly managing to sound like a, well, a shit robot, stuttering and pulling Peter Crouch shapes in the corner of a chirpy hi-NRG euro rave. Every now and then big slabs of midi slap bass portentously rise up and reverb around and around wrapped up in swooshes, shimmers and gargles. There’s a sense that I Found Love verges on the kind of progressive epics that Sasha and Digweed bought their houses on the back off, but fortunately with enough good natured fun on display the track steers well clear of disappearing up its own robotic arse. You can grab it here.
