Robot Koch - Cosmic Waves
After last year`s critically acclaimed full length album ‘The Other Side‘, Robot Koch is back with a new limited double white vinyl 2×10” LP on entitled ‘Cosmic Waves‘.

The EP features both new Robot Koch tracks as well as collaborations he made with affiliated artists. Instead of going the “usual route” by asking fellow artists to simply remix his music, Robot chose to send out half-finished tunes to his selection of musicians in order to have them finish and complete them in their very own way. To avoid the “name-dropping game” of asking the same intrenched names over and over again, he chose to collaborate with young and upcoming artists he personally favors and whose sound he really digs. For this reason the EP includes collaborations with Headshotboyz, Pavel Dovgal, Kuhn, Submerse and Rain Dog.

The EP also features 3 new solo songs by Robot Koch. ‘Nano’ and ‘Follow Birds’ have only been released digitally and will now come out on vinyl for the first time. The title track ‘Cosmic Waves‘, is a new song in the vein of classic Koch tracks like ‘Lights‘ (‘The Other Side’ 2011).

‘Cosmic Waves’ derives from the very old concept that everything and everyone is connected with and through an universal energy that comprises all that is. The music reflects a deep interest in anything spiritual and mythical but also concepts of outer- and inner-space and the balancing of new digital and futuristic influences with nature and ancient wisdom. Therefore, it represents the idea that every matter in this universe exists in this cosmic ocean of waves, constantly materializing and dematerializing. In the words of Bobby Friction of the BBC, Robot’s music sounds like “artificial intelligence discovering religion“.

While this EP is dedicated to the international scene of beat-makers and focuses on instrumental beats again, Robot Koch contiunes writing new material with vocalist John LaMonica (featured on ‘The Other Side’ as a vocalist on songs like ‘Nitesky’). Robot and John are in the studio right now, working on a new project entitled ‘Robots Don’t Sleep‘, a bandproject that takes the songwriting and melody-focus of ‘The Other Side’ to a next level – more info about this will be revealed soon.

Project: Mooncircle / hhv.de
Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle is an official label from hhv.de. It was founded in 2002 by Gordon Gieseking and is specializing in the conjunction between electronic and organic music. Being interested in music from his earliest childhood on, it eventually became more than just a passion to him. The label, at first envisaged as a compilation project only, found the perfect partner with Thomas Ulrich and his mail-order hhv.de in 2004, later being joined by Jinna Morocha from Moscow. This led the way for the first instrumental and vocal solo releases by such artists as Mr Cooper, 40 Winks, CYNE, Jahbitat, John Robinson, MF Doom, Lambent, Lewis Parker, Non of Shadowhuntaz, Graciela Maria, Strand, Robot Koch, Pavel Dovgal, Ta-Ku, Mika Gao, Onra, Obba Supa, fLako, Sina., 1000 Names, DZA, Krts, Long Arm or Glen Porter. In 2009 the sub-label Project: Squared, run by Paul Cooper and Peter Schachmann, two long-standing companions and co-workers, was founded. Project: Squared releases mainly Dubstep and Techno 12” records from such artists as Asusu, Furesshu, AnD, L-OW, Tom Diccico, Shifted and others. Another sub-label, Finest Ego, was added in 2010. Run by Malte Tarnow, its aim is to consolidate the versatility of instrumental beats, glitch or wonky and anything in between or beyond. The outcome are compilations with such producers as Daisuke Tanabe, Isaac Aesili, Om Unit, Lapalux, RLP, ichiro_, Himuro Yoshiteru, Pixelord, Monky, Christoph El Truento, and various others. The work of illustrators and graphic designers such as Bioniq, Dan May, Iain McArthur, Ima One, LNY, Gordon, 44 Flavours, La Mano Fria, and The Binh create images that accompany the acoustic spaces. Project: Mooncircle with its various producers & vocalist shall be an interesting experience for anyone looking for the extraordinary.

Review
Christian Neubert, 24.08.2012

Robert Koch is the hardest working Exil-Kasseler in Berlin. Nach einer guten Dekade als Produzent für die Band Jahcoozi, firmiert er inzwischen auch seit vier Jahren als Solokünstler, um die Musiklandschaft mit ebenso verqueren wie verspielten Elektronik-Beats zu bereichern. Seine erste Solo-LP auf dem Berliner Label Project: Mooncircle, »Death Star Droid«, konnte man noch leicht als elektronisch umgesetzten Instrumental-Hip-Hop identifizieren, doch dieses Etikett ist für den Produzenten längst zu schmal geworden. Überhaupt scheint der Tausendtsassa alles zu können: Man denke nur an das Soundgewand, in das er Graciela Marias Album »Many Places« gehüllt hat, wo eine organisch anmutende Instrumentierung komplett andere Klangfarben als seine gewohnten, kühlen Synthie-Arrangements zeichnen. Auch Zeit scheint für ihn keine Rolle zu spielen, wenn man sich sein musikalisches Portfolio mal näher betrachtet – über zehn LPs und EPs in den letzten vier Jahren, dazu Produktions- und Remixtätigkeiten für solch unterschiedliche Künstler wie Modeselektor, Ira Atari, Jennifer Rostock, Mexicans with Guns, Bassnectar, Marteria, Casper, K.I.Z. und Max Mutzke. Ein Roboter wie Koch braucht allem Anschein nach keinen Schlaf. Also: Schnell seine neue EP angehört, bevor er noch zwei, drei weitere neue Releases heraus gebracht hat! Mal sehen, ob er dann immer noch so lässig Deepness mit Leichtfüßigkeit kombinieren kann wie bei diesen »Cosmic Waves«.
