Boomkat Product Review:
**Remastered gatefold 2LP deluxe set, includes remixes by Flako and Shlohmo. Ahead of his debut LP for Monkeytown, the Berlin beats maker pushes a woozy, acidic mixture of hip hop, electronica and rude dance music. Gatefold 2LP** "After the successful “Aftershocks EP” on his own Robots Don’t Sleep label, Robot Koch returns with this long anticipated full length heavyweighter. Death Star Droid is technically Robot Koch’s debut LP, but all that this means is that the record drops with his name on it alone – the man is no rookie! Having released numerous records with his projects JAHCOOZI and THE TAPE VS RQM, as well as having made beats and remixes for for many artists internationally, Robot established himself as a household name in the world of Bass, Glitch and Lazerbeams. Lately his tunes became staple drops in the playlists of Bass Luminaries such as Starkey, Gas Lamp Killer, Hudson Mohawke, Mary Anne Hobbs and Rustie. On death star droid Robot connects the dots between his more bass heavy and clubby project JAHCOOZI and his Post Rock outfit THE TAPE. Death Star Droid is a Dubstep and Wonky Hip Hop infused affair, but the introduction of live acoustic instruments and heartfelt melodies is what sets it apart from the rest in the loosely defined genre. The grizzly synthies and bass lines on the song WHILE are supported by a drifting piano. On hard to find Robot introduces strings and flutes. The wobbling signature use of the Moog and Korg is present through out. Death Star Droid is far more than just a beatmaker/producer album with a selection of up to date beats. It’s a sincere musical statement made in the tradition of his mixtapes."
