Robot Music: Rise of the Machines

Thanks to everyone that came down on one of the hottest days of the year to represent the Robot. It was an entertaining and slightly over-warm evening of electro & beer. We celebrated two birthdays – those of Debb (Cheshunt Cru) and Henrietta (FemTap) and mourned the absence of the Sisters Reeves who might as well have built the RaveBot themselves (now residing in Prague – the city widely acknowledged as the birthplace of the robot – read Karel Capek’s 1921 play Rossum’s Universal Robots).

Tim Competent kicked the evening off with a refreshing set consisting of electro, house and techno – skillfully mixed with some old favourites in there as well as the latest bangers. Expect big things from Robot Music’s newest associate.

Next up came Braiken with a new direction – traditional electro merged with Techno/House and 21st Century bleep.

Bolus was next – pioneering the Step-Tech sound and reminding the punters that it’s still fresh the way Jimmy B serves it.

Smilex wrapped up the evening with a banging blend of techno, electro and booty floorshakers. The perfect antidote to a hot & sweaty bar in the depths of Essex Road.

All in all a successful evening for all involved – fun from start to finish and no stray bullets to moan about. If you didn’t make it down then you’ll just have to keep wondering what might have been – Robot Music will not be returning to this venue. Why? Because we’ve got bigger fish to fry.

Watch this space.
