The MonkeyRobot EP

A 4 track beats & breaks ep (17m 41s) — released November 5th 2012 on Bastard Jazz Recordings

Bastard Jazz is proud to present the debut EP from Brussels based production duo Eric P & LuiGi aka MonkeyRobot. Coming to light through their work as 74 Miles Away (Melting Pot Music) and Tall Black Guy, who selected their standout "Basement Infusion" track to be on his Tempo Dreams compilation album (released in June on Bastard Jazz), and alliance between the label and M.R. seemed natural.

Here on their self titled 12", MonkeyRobot deliver four diverse tracks that showcase their skills behind the boards, the keys, with a keen ear for the dancefloor. Kicking things off, "Brick Stomach" is a synth-heavy four-to-the-floor 120 BPM joint that comes off like a Floating Points visit back in time to 1980's Detroit with it's rolling snares, arpeggiating synth bassline and cloudy pads. Next Up, "Northern Light" filters shimmering space disco vibes through big, thumping instrumental Hip-Hop drums and moody analog bass. On the flip, "Rosè Gris" takes things in a funkier direction at 100BPM with it's syncopated drums, irresistible lead, squelching bassline and all manner of synthesizer explorations. Rounding off the EP is "Last Days", which still manages to inject a funky 80's analog sound into it's melancholy downtempo vibes. This is a seriously strong debut from a truly musically talented duo - keep your eyes open for more!
