Robot Koch - Death Star Droid

Robot Koch is the Berlin producer behind club project Jahcoozi and the post-rock group The Tape. He is going to be releasing his first full-length artist album as Robot Koch on his own label - Robots Don't Sleep.

The album called 'Death Star Droid' comes out on November 17th.

05 : People are Strange ft. Grace
06 : While ft. Manya
07 : Heaven is my Real Estate

Following the successful 'Aftershocks' EP on his own Robots Don't Sleep label, Robot Koch returns with his long anticipated full length 'Death Star Droid'.

Technically, this is Robot Koch's debut LP but the man is no rookie - 'Death Star Droid' connects the dots between his club project Jahcoozi and his post rock outfit The Tape. He has also made beats and remixes for many international artists including Rustie and Amanda Blank - staple drops in the playlists of bass luminaries such as Mary Anne Hobbs, Gas Lamp Killer and Hudson Mohawke.

'Death Star Droid' is infused with dubstep and wonky hip hop, but the introduction of live acoustic instruments and heartfelt melodies is what sets it apart. The grizzly synths and bass lines on 'While' are supported by a drifting piano. On 'Hard To Find' Robot introduces strings and flutes - the signature use of wobbling Moog and Korg present throughout.

Here is the video for "Hard to Find":
