Oh Joy! Gotta love those days when you find pleasant surprises in the inbox. I’m a fan of the dirtybird label, but sometimes the tracks are just a bit too techy or minimal for my sets… ‘Robot Romance’ is decent but it’s a bit loud and rough (kinda like that chick from the club last week)… The winner here is ‘Get Low’ – Deep. Retro Electro. Broken. Amazing. Check it out and let me know what you think… ~djElroy
Artist: Justin Martin
Title: Robot Romance
Release date: March 3rd. 2010
Justin Martin has always been a key member of dirtybird but believe it or not his last solo EP on the label was released in 2005! It is hard to believe such and influential artist on the label has taken so long to deliver his 2nd EP but the wait is over and it was worth it.
The Robot Romance EP defies genres. It is house. It is electro. It is funk. It also draws heavily from Drum n Bass, hip-hop, and even Kraftwerk. Most importantly, Justin has delivered his own sound which is the true marker of an original artist.
This EP is the lead off to the dirtybird 5 year birthday project which will be released in April, 2010. The 3 cd compilation will also feature classic dirtybird tracks and a special label mix cd by Justin.
