| [DF27] Robosapiens - Bodies EP (w/ Hedflux Remix) OUT NOW!!
Robosapiens - Bodies (Original / Hedflux) / You Can’t Spell Slaughter Without Laughter / The Nine [DF27]
OUT NOW :: at Beatport for the next 2 weeks, and then everywhere else afterwards.
We here at Dead Famous want to close out the year with a bang, and this release is definitely that. Dead Famous label heads the Robosapiens deliver a triple shot that, while a bit different than what you’ve come to expect from them, are all equally as impressive. First up is Bodies, with it’s vocal samplings and oldskool break that gives way to driving sick-as-it-comes techno. Note the complete and utterly destructive breakdown in the middle. Bodies marks somewhat of a new sound for the Robosapiens, as we’re seeing them branch out into more techno oriented territories and on a mission to make it their own. On the remix front, Broken Robot’s Hedflux has taken up the challenge of transforming the lead track for the psy-breaks masses. Keeping a thick techy feel, Hedflux has created a mental monster that builds and builds and might actually make your brain literally pop when it hits the main break. We absolutely love this remix, and think he’s done the original massive amounts of justice.
Next up, we first see a thick thick thick techno/breaks hybrid in You Can’t Spell Slaughter Without Laughter. Crafting a brooding beast that is heavy on groove Slaughter is the perfect mood builder and carries the flow excellently wheather you’re playing house, techno, OR breaks. From the moment you hit play on this tune, you’re treated to a dark (but warm) groove that builds and builds till a slick apex of insanity. Lastly, rounding out the package we see The Nine. Melding House and techno into one dark cauldron of techy funk, The Nine is a driving number aimed squarely at the dance floor with it’s big bassline and memorable vocal hook – this tune is guaranteed to take the floor up a few notches in no time.
Don't take our word for it, here's what others had to say about the Bodies EP (and tis rather nice this go round!):
Meat Katie "Killer package!!! Best Dead Famous release to date IMHO"
Far Too Loud "Great release here. Love the rock crossover in Bodies but I think The Nine is my favorite out of the originals as it's just insanely funky. Hedflux remix is great too and I've already been supporting that."
Karton "Love the Hedflux mix - proper tech-breaks. Breakdown in the original will destroy as well. You Cant Spell Slaughter is massive too - solid package."
EK "Great tracks all round but especially luvin Bodies original mix and The Nine."
Future Funk Squad "Really loving the original (of Bodies), especially that drop in the middle"
Hexadecimal “Like the Nine and You Cant Spell Slaughter, both should be really useful, nice crisp production,”
BSD "Hedflux remix is our favourite from this release. He make an hypnotic progressive Breaks with a real punch. Dance with all your bodies, Breakers !"
Mr. No Hands / Mixmag "really like this one!"
Kiwa "Been digging this quite a lot. The crossover feel in Bodies is cool and the heavy metal drop part really kicks some ass! .. Hedflux's hifi production remix gives the track a really fresh approach. Both dancefloor fillers. Dropping these for sure! A very cool release altogether."
Matthew McCurry "Smokin' originals from Robosapiens, & one of Hedflux's best remixes to date!"
Access Denied "Robosapiens - The Nine - Really groovy! Full support!"
Kickflip "Hot release once again, Loving the slick dark groove in You Can't Spell Slaughter (Without Laughter), and Hedflux's rework on Bodies is rather tasty too!"
601 "Another fantastic package from DF,"You Cant Spell Slaughter without laughter" is my favourite cut here"
Llupa “The original of Bodies is a great slab of head down techno, then it's a heavy as fuck metal tune, wtf!! - this is nuts and is gonna send the dance floors into chaos - perfect! Classic crisp as you like production from Hedflux turning the original into a psy-tech-breaks-groover - all over this.“
Until next time, Keep it Evil.
