ROBOTS DON’T SLEEP
Although Robot Koch has an international reputation as being “One of Europe`s finest producers of the beat generation“ (Low End Theory), he is much more than just a beatmaker. Hailing from Berlin, Robot Koch released three albums and 2 EPs since 2009 (on Project Mooncircle) and toured internationally, playing shows and festivals in the US and all over Europe. Koch (who was at the Red Bull Music Academy all the way back in 99) is also the mastermind behind the critically acclaimed band Jahcoozi (BPitch Control) and works as a producer and composer for both indie and major artists worldwide.
Now he is back in the studio, working on his 4th studio full length, which will be his first major-label release (Four Music/Sony Music Germany). Robot Koch collaborates again with vocalist John LaMonica (featured on Robot’s last album The Other Side released on Project Mooncircle). The concept of the album is slightly different to his early works. It’s a new project entitled ‘Robots Don’t Sleep‘; a band project that takes the songwriting and melody-focus of Koch`s last album ‘The Other Side’ to a next level and focuses on vocal tracks entirely.
