Robot Bodypop 26.06.12

This week Killian opens up with a merciless selection of subterranean dubplates to pound out of your subs until your ears cry black. His set features dark cuts from DubtekBiome, Benny Page and Swindle.

1nejack comes in with an arsenal of sound big enough to kick off the next cold war showcasing bangers from Suck Fake, Hostage, Kahn, Clueless to name a few.

A new feature this week is The Survivor. Each fortnight we will pick the cut that makes it to the next show. The aim is to survive in our playlist for as long as possible, so only perfection will make the grade. The levels are high and competition is dirty so stragglers should expect no mercy.

This week it’s Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs with their insanely unpredictable Future Garage riddim ‘Closer’ beating off all contenders. The intense bass line and crispy drums had us peaking last week. T.E.E.D. has the top spot for now, but will he still be here next fortnight? Only one way to find out – let’s bring it on.

ARP XP – Closer

Sometimes when choosing the selection for the Robot Bodypop show, you struggle to include everything we either find or get sent and when you get a gem like this album with 12 solid beats on it it makes it even tougher. But its one of them brilliant struggles if you dig? Simone Deiana is an Italian graphic artist and producer and his debut solo long player ‘Closer’ on French label IM:LTD is a banger. Meticulous attention to detail here makes these sounds incredibly exspansive and very tight. From the future D&B vibes of ‘Uneasy’ to the downbeat title track ‘Closer’ featuring Estel Luz words dont actually do this LP justice. Simply brilliant and refreshing.

Available on both Beatport & Juno
