DT752 – Sacha Robotti
Sacha Robotti has been keeping busy in lockdown and has been releasing some of the most exciting tracks of his career to date.
Last month he dropped an electric reinterpretation of ‘Fuck The Pain Away‘, while this July his collab with Dantiez Saunderson Motor City Angel lands on Kultur. Now armed with his usual explosive blend of house and techno, Sacha is back on the road again, embarking on an extensive US tour at some of the countries finest clubs and festivals.
Sacha’s professional music career began in Berlin around 2005 where his time as one half of Robosonic helped build his profile as a respected producer, DJ and label owner. However, it was in 2010 when the solo sounds of Sacha Robotti really started to take shape with his debut track Tingly Trumpets.
Fast forward a full decade and Sacha Robotti is now something of a household name thanks to releases on Klasse,FOOD, Snatch!, Octopus Recordings, Sweat It Out, Desert Hearts, a Beatport #1 on Suara, and of course Dirtybird where he has become a longstanding member of the family with multiple EPs, collabs and a VIPjoint with Claude vonStroke himself.
Sacha’s fusion of techno, house and booty-shaking basslines has remained consistent throughout and explains why he counts the likes of Seth Troxler, Dubfire, Chris Lake, Ellen Allien & Nicole Moudaber as supporters of his music – an output that has put him on prestigious lineups at events like Coachella, CRSSD Festival, Electric Forest, EDC, Nocturnal Wonderland and many more.
Summer 2019 saw Sacha Robotti launch the Slothacid record label – a launch which was supported by Billboard, no less, as well as a largely sold-out 30-date open-to-close concept tour of North America and Canada. It was a statement of intent for Robotti, and one which has since seen him expand the vision of Slothacid as a platform for not only his own productions, but also as a way to support the talent around him with two releases per month and aneclectic sound that takes in club culture, acid, techno, electro and everything in-between.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Hey! One of my faves would be the opener, which is my remix of a track by Amberroom ft. Blakkat & BabyGirl “Forces Of Nature” – the original was released on Crosstown Rebels.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
The special ingredient is slothiness. All tracks are either by me, or collabs, or edits I made, or were released on my label Slothacid.
Tell us about your next EP?
I collaborated with Dantiez Saunderson on my next EP “Power Of Choice”! It’s out on Demuir & Junior Sanchez’ label Kultur, with Demuir as well as Luca Donzelli on remix duties.
What have you got coming up?
I’m currently on my “Jumping Back In” Tour, stoked to be on the road!
