We always have been a fan of Robosonic and their music. This duo knows how to perfectly combine dope hip hop influences with a maximum of danceability. And this “Good Feel EP” is just another evidence!
We think the release info speaks for itself…
They can’t stop and they won’t stop! Robosonic’s organic blend of classy house music and classic hip-hop has gone next level again. Some cats will file this under „deep house“, others even under „G-house“ – both genre names which Sacha & Cord have been reluctant to use for their own music. What does „G“ stand for anyway?! Golden-era, girls, gangsta, good feel..?!
New York rap legend Masta Ace, originally part of the famed Juice Crew in the mid-80s (with Marley Marl, Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane among others!), known for collaborations with artists such as MF Doom, influencing rappers like Eminem, and still now known as one of the truest rappers alive, made a teenage dream come true for Cord when he recorded an original feature part and hook for Robosonic on top of their soulful “Good Old Feel“! A radio cut, boasting the full vocal performance by Masta Ace, is not included in this 3-tracker, but rather saved up for the upcoming Robosonic album.
“Dedicated” is a raw take on the mid 90‘s sound of the west… a classic record from Sacha’s collection became the initial inspiration for the funkdoobiest house tool Robosonic made so far.
“Life is like” is another obvious tribute to real rap. Not only to Nas, who is quoted with his very own ‚Illmatic‘ punchlines, but also to DJ Premier, his sample wizadry, signature turntable hooks and countless milestones in hiphop production! There is even a crafty shout out to Big L, who used to speak with criminal slang, until the sad day he was shot.. Celebrate life before it’s over.
Huge early DJ support by:
