Robot Bodypop 18.08.12 – 1st Birthday Edition

artwork by Brian Despain

One year since it’s immaculate conception, Robot Bodypop pull out all the stops to bring you a fitting celebration to end a great first year of podcasting. We have been very lucky to host and interview some amazing acts in our ongoing Transmit mix series and we hope to build on that into 2013. We are massively appreciative of our listeners, friends, relatives, producers, artists, labels and promoters that have helped and supported us along the way. To show how humble we are, we have stitched together an hour long back to back mix of some of our keenest selections to date for free download. Check the First Annuary Podcast feature below.

As for the show itself, 1nejack opens on the deep and emotional side of things with artists like Purity Ring, Maribou and 123MRK all gracing the playlist. Killian comes in a dutty dancefloor style – Major Lazer, Strategy and eccentric reggae don Lee Scratch Perry get a good rotation in his half of the show, but that’s not before we bring out this fortnight’s Survivor. Clear out your ears, open your mind and enjoy.

ECID – Swagger Wagon

Anyone who listens to the Robot Bodypop show knows we always like to throw in something completely different. Persuing Bandcamp led me to ECID and it was immediately apprent this was what I was looking for. ‘Swagger Wagon’ is a 6 track freebie with 3 vocal tracks and then the same 3 instrumentals. The title track featuring Derrill Pounds & Leif sits somewhere between several bass heavy genres. Coupled with a vocal with that wraps around the sounds and doesnt for one moment take a back seat to the music, it gives this production a ridiculously gritty feel. ‘The Future Is Free’ & ‘Tomorrows Astronaut’ features guests David Mars and AWOL respectively. This has been on rotation in the car for days. Free as well. Unless you want to bung them some $.

The Minneapolis based producer & MC dropped this in 2011 in anticipation for his LP ‘Werewolf Hologram’. His sound can not be contained and in his own words:

“Ecid is the voice to kick a hipster to.”
