After last year`s release of his debut full length album entitled Death Star Droid Berlin stromtrooper Robot Koch kept himself hella busy. In 2010 alone he dropped the new Jahcoozi album Barefoot Wanderer on Bpitch Control, released his EP Listen To Them Fade on Project:Mooncircle, did a bunch of remixes and productions for both major and indie artsits and played stunnig live shows everywhere from Low End Theory in LA to the Sonar Festival in Barcelona. And now he`s back to do some serious damage with his 2nd LP Songs for Trees and Cyborgs . The album shows Robot s versatility as a producer it mixes and blends fresh, forward thinking electronic beats with heartfelt melodies and organic live instumentation. On choice tracks Mr. Koch teams up with the likes of Boxcutter (Planet Mu), 1000 Names (Black Acre), Doshy (Robox Neotech), RQM (Baby Sumo) and Graciela Maria (Project Mooncircle) to present the point where dubstep, hip-hop and its myriad of influences fuse into a kaleidoscopic collage of sounds.
Berlin beat maestro and Jahcuzzi member Robot Koch has just made yet another splash in 2010 with the release of his brand-new full-length record, Songs for Trees and Cyborgs. The producer's 14-track LP just dropped on the Project: Mooncircle label, and follows the Death Star Droid Remix EP and Listen to Them Fade 12" he released earlier this year on the same imprint. Songs also features contributions from the likes of Doshy, Boxcutter, and Graciela Maria, among others. And let's not forget about the split release Robot Koch is dropping tomorrow on Friends of Friends along with Mexicans with Guns, Friends of Friends Vol. 3. You can check out more about that record here, and get all the info on Koch's Songs for Trees and Cyborgs album here. --Xlr8r
Berlin-based producer Robot Koch will release his first solo album, Songs for Trees and Cyborgs, early next month on Project: Mooncircle. Perhaps best known for production work with BPitch outfit Jahcoozi, Koch is a multi-talented producer who works under a variety of different monikers: as The Tape he specializes in sprawling post-rock, while Jahcoozi blend dance hall, dubstep, break beat and whatever takes their fancy. His work under his own name is equally diverse, but tends to hover in between a dubstep and post-hip-hop region that calls to mind artists like Flying Lotus. His new LP will be the second under his own name, following last year's Death Star Droid. The album features guest appearances by Planet Mu's Boxcutter and Berlin-based beatsmith Doshy. --Resident Advisor
