While Robosonic's extraordinary OFF debut „Worst Love" was paying homage to a specific underground rap record by the Dilated Peoples (actually without sampling the record itself), the follow-up now takes it way over the edge: consciously, of sound mind. Since their early vinyl bootlegs (2005) under various aliases and their critically acclaimed first album as Robosonic (2007), Cord and Sacha incorporate a certain sense of irony into their undisputed world class production work. For their next episode on OFF, the boys cut slices of hiphop sample history and flipped them into seriously soulful house music joints. Functional arrangements with plenty of musical references to golden eras and past times create the emotional depth of Robosonic's modern „hi-tech soul".
„OVER" with its intimate feel seems less obvious than the famous hookline of „THE EDGE". In fact Dr. Dre was not the first beatmaker to cook it up, so Robosonic probably aren't the last either. They just do what they like doing best. Funnily enough our praised creators anticipate critics and let Talib do the talking: „These cats ain't real."
