From Robotnick’s archives: re-releases, E=MC2 video and remix

After being involved in the music scene for some 30 years there’s no denying he boasts an extensive oeuvre, and he knows a thing or two about production. Whether that’s the kind of techno-edged electronica that appeared on the EPM 10 album we loved earlier this year, or live work with Avida, the first band he put together in the early 1980s.

As such Alexander Robotnick is something of a legend. And, needless to say, throughout the three decades of his work this 60-year-old enigma has managed to collect a huge amount of unreleased sounds, which are now being made available. His own Hot Elephant Music began releasing this largely unheard work in early December, and will now continue on a monthly basis for one year.

Each instalment will offer between two and five tracks, ranging from techno to disco, all coming under the banner Robotnick’s Archives. Take a listen to a preview of the first instalment via Juno by clicking here. On top of that a re-issue of Georgio Moroder’s groundbreaking E=MC2 just arrived, a tune that should be recognised by anyone with even a passing interest in any of dance music’s four or five corners, and to celebrate Mr Robotnick has put a video together for his own remix; take a look below and see what you think.
