Boomkat Product Review:
Although famed for their audiovisual shenanigans, Hexstatic have clearly been working hard on the musical end of their endeavours. When Robots Go Bad sees the group furthering their obsession with all things electro without ever compromising on their penchant for pop hooks and all-round Ninja Tune-style funkiness. Single 'Red Laser Beam' is right at the top of the album, opening with a set of sampled rawk guitar chords and a vocoder, Hexstatic unleash some hefty videogame drum programming, complete with scattershot raygun sound effects. After the breakdown, the track swells up considerably with the beats taking on a far bigger sound and wave after wave of synthesizer falling into place. Next, 'Roll Over' makes like Goldfrapp and attaches glam rock rhythms to pulsing analogue electronics while a slinky female vocal sails across the mix. We're soon back to the more pronouncedly electro-oriented fare however, with the classy arcade machine sonics of 'Tokyo Traffic'. Persisting with this theme, 'Prom Night Party' and 'Newton's Cradle' are forthright with the sci-fi pop stylings, while tracks like 'Subway' and 'Move On' (both featuring Profisee) shift away from some of the more kitsch elements of the Hexstatic sound palette in favour of more street-savvy beats.
