"Futuristic riddims sent back through a wormhole by a band of post-apocalyptic reggae loving robots."
Robot Riddims’ official debut Rude Mechanicals combines the sound of chiptune, a love of 1980s dancehall and a trusty circuit-bent 1988 Kawai drum machine into a four track sure shot.
The EP kicks off with the future/past dancehall sound and disembodied android deejaying of “RoboRockers”, before continuing with a nod to more recent JA beats with the crunchy drums and cheerfully skittering 8 bit arps of “Skynet Party”.
Next up the noisy, anarchic “True Grit” pushes the bit crushed lo-fi sound to the extreme to create a truly brutal groove, before the release is rounded off with the dubbed out and stripped down “RoboDubbers” version of the EP’s first track.
lofi and crusty as hell, brilliant riddims including a great vocal track from Vernon Maytone and the completely bonkers/brilliant video game malfunction that is"Persian Pulse Width". Essential. Robot_Riddims
Fantastic versions of a truly classic riddim. Amazingly the prescence of dancehall legend Burro Banton isn't even the high point, with Rider Shafique taking the crown with an absolutely killer vocal. Robot_Riddims
