Toronto label My Favorite Robot Records started their ‘Stimulus Package’ releases back in 2009 with a view to putting out a series of EPs featuring one off tracks from existing label artists and fresh talent alike. Along the way the series has boasted tracks from the likes of Kenny Glasgow, James Teej, Phonogenic & Michael J Collins to name just a few and has become a regular highlight in the imprint’s release schedule.
Now the MFRR team looks to their eighth chapter and in doing so brings onboard four new acts to join the label’s impressive roster. The EP kicks off with a cut from DJ Glen & Vitor Munhoz called ‘Nadie Tiene que Saber’, which translates as ‘Nobody Has to Know’. The pair are based in Brazil and have recorded for a number of labels such as Kassette Records and Der Hut, this particular track was signed by My Favorite Robot member James Teej whilst on a recent tour of Brazil. Deep, rolling and with a brooding dark feel to it, ‘Nadie Tiene que Saber’ is perfect fit for the Stimulus Package series and with it’s haunting vocal clips and bubblin bassline it is a surefire winner.
Next up we have Vancouver based Stefan Z, owner of the Rhombus label and sometime Resopal Schallware artist. Here he offers up the excellent ‘My Mind’, a spacious and atmospheric house cut with a melancholic electro-esque vocal, quality stuff. The penultimate cut sees London based/Mexican born Betoko team up with Culprit artist Climbers for ‘Timeline’, a heads down techy groove replete with old school synth lines, skittering percussion and swirling FX, sublime. Finally we have Manchester based Jouhl who delivers the superb ‘Vodou’ feat. Gaika, a piece of deep vocal techno with a warm organic feel and a perfect closing piece to this superb package.
My Favorite Robot’s Eighth Stimulus Package has hit the mark once again with a selection of tracks that shine from beginning to end, enjoy!
