RR.135 A&B – top loader – A.hyperstar B.hypernova

Visit the archive

For the first time ever in R!R history comes a release that has an extra bonus album included in the release.  Top Loader from Baton Rouge, Louisiana wanted to give you the listener an extra bonus, just like a video game you have a DLC so to speak of extra tunes not included in the original release.  Hyperstar and Hypernova are a great journey through space and beyond in chiptune form.  10 tracks total on two seperate albums, what more could you ask for?  You will hear more from Top Loader in the near future because we see a ton of potential in this up and coming chiptune artist.  -RR!

So if 8 Bit Peoples doesn’t want to release this epic as fuck album what do you do?  You turn to ROBO! Robotica where we don’t discriminate against you for any reason at all.  I remember Caleb talking about this on facebook and thought wow I bet that album is gonna be off the hook.  You know what? I was right.  If you are into 8 bit music, chiptunes, raving, heavy bass, and of course 80’s late 90’s music then this album is for you.  Don’t act like these songs haven’t already been implanted in your brain from way back when.  Push play and try not to smile and get off your chair and relive the good old days but in the now.  We are so happy Crackula brought us this album to put out to all of you, this is truly a great piece of work that can’t not be heard. Please do another, PLEASE!!!! -RR!

We get a ton of demo submissions here and yeah they usually all get put up.  Most are my friends, most are friends of friends, and others just email me just to email me.  Top Loader comes from Louisiana and brings some cute but not too cute chiptune.  He gave us the pleasure of releasing his first release and we love it.  We look forward to putting out more of his stuff and we look forward to listening to it as well.  And please keep coming back this weekend for a ton of free music of all types.  Its October and that means spooooky music is on its way. -RR!

RR.86 – earth dies screaming – black wizardry

Visit the archive

Finally it is here!  Alert the presses!  The official release of Black Wizardry by the Austin native Earth Dies Screaming.  Unofficially released on MySpace sometime in 2009 this album never saw the true light of day.  The creation of this album was  mentally draining on lead dood of EDS, DuckMan.  Ill include his notes after this text so you can get the real details on creating this album.  Now, if you have kept up with what we have done here on ROBO! and if you’ve kept up with what we’ve done even before this you know about Earth Dies Screaming.  I met DuckMan sometime in 2005 or so, he had a project with another friend of ours Chance called Game Over.  When I first met these guys I didn’t know what to expect being from so far, not really, away.  They ended up being some of the coolest cats I’ve ever run into during my time doing this thing I call a “Job.”  But now back to this album, I’ve been waiting to hear this album for sometime now and you bet your ass I burned a copy and put it in the car, yeah fuck Ipods.  This album was way before its time and I bet you wouldn’t have known the difference if I was on here yapping on about it.  This album has a little bit of everything, chippy breaks, heavy synth, fat chords, and great vocals to say the least.  We are very honored to release this album in its entirety and hope to see alot more from EDS in the near future.  Just so you know this is “A Ton of Free Music Week” at ROBO! Robotica in celebration of Phil’s birthday which is on Sunday the 18th of September.  Look forward to a ton of free music this weekend and always. -RR!

DUCKMAN SAYS:

This album was me trying to break the mold that I was so accustumed to hearing. Trying to create something different, something unusual and out of the ordinary. A sound so different, perhaps even labeling it bizzare, that producers and composers alike would be unable to fit it into a genre of music. To be completely honest, I believe I failed miserbly short, and this is the omnious outcome. These songs took a hell of a told on the creator, myself, and forced me into a merciless downward spiral that unravled the foundation I so easily spread over my creations. I went back to basics. Started over and actually worked on the songs. Trying to fix every mistake, make sure it was perfect in it’s entirety before it was publically released. I learned this to be exremeley difficult, and tedious, I even stopped producing because of it. It took me a while to get over my musicians block, and I finally just learned to not give so much of a fuck when playing music. I totally forgot what music was about, having fun, and I was just trying to make something everyone could enjoy, not what I was proud of. Now here we are, a whole year spend trying to fix myself. I guess it’ll pay off in the long run… These songs are not my best, no where near it. They’re a year old now, memories long gone and past. I stopped working on them for months, letting them rot on my computer. So, I finally decided to polish them up and release them as is. I just want people to hear that I was infact working on music a little bit of that time we were on hiatus. I hope I never have to hear these songs again. Again, these songs are UNINFINISHED, but I hope you might still enjoy. -DUCKMAN

RR.58 – Christmasasaurus Volume 5

Visit the archive here

Merry Christmas to everyone who has supported Robo! Robotica over the years.  We try to bring you the best in experimental electronic all the way to grindcore the best we can.  Every year for the past 5 years m@ from Bubblegum Octopus puts together one of the best Christmas compilations ever heard on planet earth.  This year is no different with the 5th installment of this great Compilation.  We here at Robo! Robotica are truly stoked to have been involved in this project over the years and continue to bring you one of the best Holiday compilations again for the 5th year in a row.  -RR!

-notes-

Hello holiday people,Welcome to the fifth entry in the ongoing experimental Christmas music compilation, Christmasasaurus.Yes, you read correctly, this is not Christ-mah-saurus, that’s a full five syllables of inarticulate portmanteau right up in ya face.

You probably know the story of this comp by now, but just in case:In 2005 Dingle (Peppermint Pony) and I (Bubblegum Octopus) noted the lack of Christmas compilations dedicated to strange music.We formed the idea to organize strange and talented minds, predominantly those of our friends in the experimental electronic music world, to get together for the purposes of venerating Christmas cheer.
No, this isn’t a statement against the Christian abduction of Pagan traditions.This isn’t some anti-capitalist, anti-consumerism type of protest.This is simply all of us Christmas caroling via our music projects. There are no motives except hopefully making your season brighter or at least freaking some people out at some otherwise vanilla Christmas parties.
I want to thank everyone involved in this, everyone who downloads and shares this, Robo! Robotica!! for putting this out, and everyone who has participated in past and future installments!
Merry Christmas!!- m@ the c@
