Robosonic [DJ & producer team] :: Berlin Kreuzberg
ROBOSONIC aka Cord and Sacha have finally arrived on the international scene in summer 2012 with their hit record „Worst Love“, released on Off Recordings with remixes by Dr. Dru and Fritz Zander. Already a „classic“ now, the record was stuck for weeks in the top positions on Beatport and, besides being charted by some players of the house scene like DJ Sneak and many more, has made it to Number 1 in June on Resident Advisor’s „Top Charted Tracks“ and Number 35 in the Resident Advisor „Top Charted Tracks of 2012“. Nonetheless, ROBOSONIC are not new to the game at all!
For years the boys have been building a reputation as DJs for murdering dancefloors worldwide – not only playing what they really feel, but also performing their own multidimensional electronic music. In 2007, ROBOSONIC released their highly acclaimed debut album called “Sturm und Drang” [accompanied by a series of 12” vinyl] on their own, now defunct label DISKOMAFIA.
Tracks by ROBOSONIC have been remixed by stars and heroes like Jesse Rose [Made To Play], Oliver Koletzki [Cocoon, Stil vor Talent] & Florian Meindl [Trapez, Flash], Christopher Just [Gigolo, Kitsuné], Deadset [Frontroom] and Alexander Robotnick; and have been played by a slew of big name DJs.
Besides their productions, their lovable personalities and their realness, ROBOSONIC are notorious for their DJ performances. For seven years now, the boys have proven their skills at a wide variety of events worldwide, including festivals, illegal raves, penthouse parties, clubs, on the radio and on TV.
Since 2008 they have collaborated with their friends BERLIN MITTE INSTITUT Web TV show, to host the BERLIN KREUZBERG INSTITUT [BKI] show. The archive of this platform for DJ mixes and live sets now reads like a who’s who for talent in electronic dance music: Phonique, Anja Schneider, Riva Starr, Style of Eye, Stephan Bodzin, Dominik Eulberg, Rodriguez Jr., Zombie Disco Squad, Mike Monday, Dapayk, Cats’N’Dogs, the Martin Brothers and the Keinemusik crew are just a few names among the hundreds that participated in the project BKI.
After almost four years of abstinence from original productions during which Robosonic travelled the globe DJing, the boys were back in the studio game in 2011 with a sublime release on Jackmode Music entitled „The Sweetness“, including a remix by one of Dirtybirds‘ finest, J.Phlip. „The Sweetness“ original was subsequently licensed by Joris Voorn for the „Cocoon Heroes“ compilation on Sven Väth’s well-known label.
„The Punchi EP“ released at the beginning of 2012 on their own digital imprint named „0001“ was dedicated to the multifunction towelling scarf [www.punchi.de]: in a fresh „robosonic yellow“ (limited 500pcs, sold out!) the Punchi was successfully introduced as a true and innovative rave merchandise for heated situations.
After ROBOSONIC‘s success with „Worst Love“ in summer 2012, a follow up on Off Recordings named „Over The Edge EP“ was released at the beginning of September. „The Edge“ has peaked at Number 6 in the Beatport Deep House Charts and at Number 22 in the Top 100 - and by January 2013, the track is still in the Top 50 of the Deep House Charts! Both „Worst Love“ and „The Edge“ were the biggest hits that came out on Off Recordings in 2012 and have helped it to become one of the most sought-after Deep House labels on the planet.. Off Recordings label nights as far as Colombia and Mexico followed and it’s far from over.
September 2012 also saw a heart-warming Robosonic Remix of a track by the famous jazz-crooner Louie Austen („Never and Ever“) on Monkey Music, who became famous for collaborations with Tiefschwarz or the Matthew Herbert Dub of „Hoping“.
November 2012 saw a Robosonic Remix for Channel X on Oliver Koletzki’s label Stil Vor Talent, which was the beginning of a loose collaboration with the label that at the beginning of 2013 culminated in the release of an original record entitled „Feldrecord Im Zirkus EP“, with remixes by NU and Channel X. This artful EP pays tribute to pianist Laura Weider, who challenged herself to a particular kind of concert during the crazy lifetime of the Berliner Bar 25: the „Longest Concert of a solo artist“ (40 hours) that ended up as an official Guinness World Record. Robosonic managed to tape the whole concert and used samples and field recordings - made by pianist and public alike – to create a club track that catches the weird and emotional atmosphere of this moment.
For 2013, you can expect Robosonic to continue their run to the next level, amongst others with a rework of Johnny Corporate‘s Y2K hit „Sunday Shoutin‘“ on Defected (released 11th February), a collaboration with the Exploited act Adana Twins on a label yet to remain secret, a remix of a Kerri Chandler classic on the legendary New Yorker house label King Street Sounds, a remix for Noir Music, another hit on Off Recordings before summer, and much more!
Be ready for more creative chaos on a next level, open source inspiration, wild parties, visual workout with love and detail, sweat on the walls, bassy music with a 4/4 heartbeat, hi-tech soul!
