Shit Robot premiered his new video for “Take ‘Em Up” over at Pitchfork on Monday. The video follows LCD Soundsystem’s Nancy Whang on a multi-colored, multiplied psychedelic voyage around Brooklyn.

“Best electronic album coming this year”
The Guardian

“Irish-born Marcus Lambkin (a.k.a. Shit Robot) may be one of the lower-profile members of the DFA crew, but that doesn’t mean the man doesn’t have some serious DJ chops.”
XLR8R

From the Cradle to the Rave (produced by James Murphy) is a near perfect album, and “Take Em Up” is one reason why. The interplay between Marcus “Shit Robot” Lambkin’s synthesizer disco-funk and Nancy Whang’s unflappable vocals is, simply, great. The album also features other DFA family guests such as Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor and Juan MacLean.
 
Shit Robot, aka Marcus Lambkin (aka The Godfather of DFA, according to Murphy), is an Irish-born DJ who has been spinning dance music for over two decades. He’s responsible for not only turning Murphy onto dance music in the 90’s, but also literally lending his carpentry skills to build the infamous DFA studio from the ground up.
