Alexander Robotnick “Obsession For The Disco Freaks” Out Now!

Posted on Jun 10th, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

Alexander Robotnick means “Alexander The Worker” in Russian, and it couldn’t be a more fitting moniker – his tunes have worked, jacked and shook down dancefloors for the better part of three decades. Cult hits like “Problemes d’Amour” and “Dance Boy Dance” continue to be spun by DJs around the world for a reason – they were ambitious, futuristic cuts when first released in the early 80s, and remain timeless club rockers today, continuing to influence modern producers almost note-for-note.

Fool’s Gold is proud to continue the Robotnick tradition with the exclusive North American release of his latest, “Obsession For The Disco Freaks.” The Fool’s Gold digital and 12″ single comes backed by brand new reworks from some of today’s current electronic masters: Nacho Lovers, Freeform Five and Li’ll Bo Tweak.

Buy now on iTunes and Beatport, vinyl on its way! Check his homemade “Obsession” video after the jump. Read More

With a Duster cameo!

This Thursday. DJ Quik and Trackademicks.

Posted on Jun 8th, 2009 by Trackademicks


Anyone that truly knows my musical inclinations knows that DJ Quik is in my Top 5 of artists of all time. So the fact that I am on the same bill with him has me JUICED.

The one thing that I can say about him is that he has always been ahead of the curve, able to do what others in his genre could never think of doing. Back in middle school I remember watching PBS right before Reading Rainbow was about to come on, when all of a sudden “Quik’s Groove III” came on as the soundbed for the station ID!

Working with musicians like El Debarge and Raphael Saadiq, as well as a high level of live instrumentation, have only helped solidify him as a pioneer of sophisticated grown-folks gangsta rap music. Did I mention Suga Free?

If you’re in NORTHERN CALIFORNIA and you ain’t at Ruby Skye in SF this Thursday, that’s when you’re lost… In Life.
