Thank you to all who voted! 2009 was a revolution and 2010 is going to be even better!

And see you at Low End Theory tonight! We have Robot Koch, the beat brain behind Jahcoozi and the artist responsible for one of my favorite tracks of 2009, MatthewDavid of Leaving Records fame and Co.Fee from one of the tightest producing crews in town, My Hollow Drum.

Also on hand of course is the resident lineup so sick you might as well come to the party in an ambulance: Daddy Kev, Nobody, Gaslamp Killer and MC Nocando.

Track of the Day: Robot Koch “Hard to Find”

Posted in Artists, LISTEN TO THIS, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , on October 29, 2009 by worldromper

Turn it up! This is the freakin’ song of the day:

From the album Death Star Droid due out November 9 from Robot Koch, the radical sound constructor and beat brain behind Jahcoozi, whose tunes you know even if you don’t know you don’t know. Now you know.

“Hard to Find” is the final track on an-ten-nae‘s just released Acid Crunk Vol. 2 and is a brilliant end to an absolutely fantastic album. It is the cherry on top, the pièce de résistance, the fanny pack on the Halloween costume. You should seriously buy it here.

Robots don’t sleep.

Robots Don’t Sleep *NEW MUSIC*

Posted in Artists, LISTEN TO THIS, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2009 by worldromper

robots!Check out this prerelease, Robot Koch vs. Cerebral Vortex After Shocks, #1 on Juno dubstep charts right now and #5 overall!

Fresh out the knob boxes, this is the first EP from Robots Don’t Sleep, the new label of my friend and grand beatmaster Robot Koch of Berlin. He is one of the three members of Jahcoozi along with Sasha Perera and Oren Gerlitz and his beats define the word tight. 

The EP features remixes by Flako and Stagg, the instrumentals, the acca and some analog synth sound samples (moog, jupiter, juno) in the tracks.

Have a listen and buy that shit here.
