281 – Robosonic


Robosonic are Henning Labuhn and Sacha Robotti, a DJ/Production duo hailing from Kreuzberg, Germany. Over the last 5 years the duo have built up a very respectable reputation with their Tech-House releases on the Undercoverart and Off Recordings labels and this year saw the release of their acclaimed 12′ ‘The Sweetness’ on the Jackmode imprint.  These guys also know their stuff when it comes DJ’ing and have a prepared us a solid hour of Tech-House goodness that we think you are going like an awful lot… Sum up this podcast in 10 words… S: Hey Data Transmission, thanks for the invite! To sum it up, we made a DJ mix of about an hour using many tracks which have been working great in the club lately.. C: ..sleazy, sloppy, deep, dirty, jacking, twisted, raw, melancholic, hi-tech soul!   What’s your personal favourite track on it? C: I guess that would be one of our original productions. I’m more than happy that „Feldrecord im Zirkus“ found a home on the Berliner label ‚Stil vor Talent’. The whole project with pianist Laura Weider and her Guinness world record performance at the infamous Bar25 has been cooking for a couple of years now. Having it released on vinyl with such a tremendous coverart, the remixes (Channel X and Nu) and a short video feels like a relief.   S: Definitely.. good things come to those who wait! Of all the other tracks, I like Audiojack’s dub mix of Chris James „Song For Her“, it’s touching. Also I love Sepehr’s track „Cupid“, it’s got balls. This guy is one to watch! It‘s always nice to receive unreleased music from artists we like and respect..   What’s the special ingredient in this mix? C: Some of our night club experience? S: Some of our soul?   What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?  S: What do you think Cord, the gigs we played at Nordstern and Watergate a couple of weeks ago? C: Oh yeah, the Basel & Berlin weekend went off, even though we were struggling with a wintery flu and missed our flight to Switzerland. The energy of the people surrounding us at both gigs was really uplifting!   What have you got coming up?  S: There’s one track in the podcast which we made with the Adana Twins, it’s called „La Fique“. I grew up in Belgium with lots of French House in the mid 90s, one label I bought pretty much every release from was Thomas Bangalter’s ‚Roulé Scratché‘, where I guess the inspiration for this collab comes from for me: to make a simple, sleazy, funky partyjam. Most probably this track is coming out soon on a quality label from New York, can’t say more than that yet. Additionally, we’re working on remixes and reworks of some of our heroes like Kerri Chandler, and you can probably expect another Robosonic joint on OFF Recordings in 2013. Our OFF labeldaddy Andre Crom is already waiting impatiently for new tunes!   C: Of course in the podcast you‘ll hear both originals of the „Feldrecord im Zirkus“ EP I mentioned before, coming out in January on Oliver Koletzki’s label ‚Stil vor Talent’. No famous samples, no soulful edits, no moral. What else…? We are currently recording with Masta Ace, undoubtedly still one of the best rappers alive and a big inspiration to me since I was a teenager. From Brooklyn to Berlin Kreuzberg… cäään you dig it?   And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
