Robosonic

We all know that not everyone understands House Music but even Jack himself couldn't have wished for a more spiritual, body and soul shakin duo to spread the word. You don‘t exactly have to dive into Robosonic's numerous releases to instantly hear that the classic House Music template - laid down all those years ago in Chicago and New York - was always the most popular game for this Berlin based duo.

It has been 9 years since their first album „Sturm und Drang“ and more than double that since these boys adopted mixtapes, crates and bootlegs as their daily nourishment. They've been hard at work in the studio ever since, squeezing more groove out of their tracks than an industrial juicer. 

Following their genre-defining Beatport Deep House chart toppers “Worst Love” and “The Edge” Robosonic cemented their place as front runners on the international House scene. Those tracks propelled the boys into a string of high profile releases and collaborations that hasn't let up since! 


Original jams and tracks from bona fide House legends alike get rebooted and fly straight into the charts while keeping their original vibe, when these two give em a lick of their unique talent for beats and low frequencies. For instance, their remix of Eddie Amador's classic “House Music” on Deep Dish’s Yoshitoshi imprint quickly hit #1 on the Beatport Deep House Chart (Overall #4) – but also the rework of Johnny Corporate’s “Sunday Shoutin'” on Defected, a remix for Todd Terry on Toolroom and their very special version of Kerri Chandler's classic “Hallelujah” released on NYC house label King Street Sounds continue to make waves on dancefloors around the world. This year, Yoshitoshi invited the guys back to raid the archives, which has resulted in 2 new remixes this summer. First a jackin’ techno infused remix of Chiapet “Tick Tock” and then back to Eddie Amador again with a reboot of his most successful track to date, “Rise” (UK Charts topper in 2000)...

But the guys are no retro junkies! They have love for all music, which finds its way into their own productions. This is infectious when working with other DJs and producers: you can literally hear the fun they had in collaborations like the „La Fique EP“ with the Adana Twins on 2DIY4 (Beatport Indie Dance #1 for a month), the „Juicy EP“ with Thabo Getsome on DFTD, or the „RPMD EP“ with Purple Disco Machine on Nurvous Records.


While many in the scene have moved toward the darker reaches of Techno and Tech House as genre crazes seem to come in waves, Robosonic have re-focused back on the essential groove and swing of the music that got them into all this in the first place. 
„We‘ve always been massively influenced by the sounds of US Hip Hop & Soul“ confirms Cord, „and even though, having a German / Belgian / Italian heritage and growing up with Techno, it always needs to have that injection of funk to make it work“, says Sacha, adding: „that doesn’t mean we can’t play a tough afterhours set or bang it when we feel like it or the dancefloor needs it“. Playing for 10 years in Berliner clubs and being massive fans of Jeff Mills, Green Velvet, DJ Funk, Josh Wink, DJ Koze also left a mark on their versatility.

On the international plateau, Robosonic are most well know for their Hip Hop infused House - and argueably, no one plays that game better than them, not only when it comes to sampling from records of the past, but also to promoting Hip Hop legends. Dubbing what they're doing as „Golden Era House“ (as opposed to the term G House, which they're not fond of), recent years have seen the Berlin beat junkies collaborate with none other than 90's legends Masta Ace, Jeru The Damaja and KRS-One, who trusted them enough to record original material for them – a huge honour and dream come true! Fruits of these labours „Free Flow“ and „1UP“ are set to come out on the hot UK label Simma Black this Autumn, which is owned by fellow Hip Hop head Low Steppa.

But it‘s not all studio sweat… Robosonic love the sun and the travel, they speak 7 languages in between them, and they’re very approacheable people! So it’s no surprise that they‘ve built a true fan base stretching far and wide to every corner of the globe, as they play every weekend relentlessly: within one month, they may DJ in Paris, London, Dubai, Moscow, Berlin, Basel, Bogotà, Bangkok, Mexico City – spreading their good vibes and a message of love.
