Shit Robot returns with his first new material since the release of his debut long-player, ‘From The Cradle To The Rave’. After spending much of 2010 and 2011 touring the globe with his live show – including a string of dates opening/performing with LCD Soundsystem during their final shows in NYC - the rebooted Robot is back with ‘The Green Machine’.
The first result of his Stuttgart/New York studio adventures is a double-header of dancefloor jams, ‘Teenage Bass’ b/w ‘Space Race’, which is released on vinyl and digital on DFA on May 21 2012. It’s the first in a series of releases called ‘The Green Machine’, which will culminate in an album early next year.
Lead cut ‘Teenage Bass’ rides a rude EBM bassline and rave alert sirens, before expanding further with key changing chords and a defining arpeggiator. The hypnotic ‘Space Race’ is a distant relative of 2007’s ‘Chasm’ – a meandering, melodic, star-gazing Robo-techno workout
