Shit Robot Announces New 12” on DFA, “Teenage Bass” b/w “Space Race,” the First Release In His New Project, The Green Machine
Speaking about the new release, Shit Robot said: “After the album I just wanted to go back to my roots and make some dance 12”s, music for people to get drunk and jump around to.”
Shit Robot returns with his first new material since the release of his debut long-player, 2010’s From The Cradle To The Rave. After spending much of 2010 and 2011 touring the globe with his live show – including a string of dates opening/performing with LCD Soundsystem during their final shows in NYC – the rebooted Robot is back with The Green Machine. The first result of his Stuttgart/New York studio adventures is a double-header of dancefloor jams, “Teenage Bass” b/w “Space Race,” which will be released digitally and on vinyl via DFA on May 21, 2012.
It’s the first in a series of releases called The Green Machine, which will culminate in an album early next year. Lead cut “Teenage Bass” rides a rude EBM bassline and rave alert sirens, before expanding further with key changing chords and a defining arpeggiator. The hypnotic “Space Race” is a distant relative of 2007’s “Chasm” – a meandering, melodic, star-gazing Robo-techno workout.
