Italian dancefloor veteran I-Robots returns to Hong Kong! This truly eclectic DJ blurs the distinctions between techno of the future and Italo disco of the past. I-Robots’ productions for labels like Balance Recordings and Compost Black Label span deep house to techy acid, while his huge collection of 30,000 vinyl records has earned him the title of “historian” by DJs like Chicago house master Chez Damier.

As head of the label Opilec Music, I-Robots’ hand-picked compilations and remixes provide insight into his unique tastes. From electronic disco godfather Giorgio Moroder to Detroit techno pioneers like Juan Atkins and Richie Hawtin to hitmakers like Todd Terje (and even a release by Hong Kong’s own, Casey Anderson), I-Robots promises to immerse you in his own world of timeless, exciting and unpredictable electronic music!

Presented by Humdrum Hong Kong – join us at Bassment on July 13th to re-discover I-Robots! Support from Humdrum’s DJs Ocean Lam and Casey Anderson (for his birthday party)! From 10pm til sunrise the next day, it’s sure to be the best and latest gathering of Hong Kong’s electronic music lovers dancing til tomorrow.

Matthew Dekay and Lee Burridge
Fur Die Liebe
[All Day I Dream]
A duo who’ve produced some forward-thinking dancefloor material, and the strings on this track get me every time.

Ry Cumin & Frank Wiedermann
Howling (Âme Remix)
[Innervisions]
I don’t usually go for big vocal tracks, but there’s something quite stirring about this guy’s singing – plus the track comes to a pretty powerful conclusion.

Barnt
Geffen
[Cómeme]
It was always fun watching the crowd when dropping this weird little number. Geffen is really nothing more than a beat and a fun little octave-driven synth line, but it drove people crazy every single time.

Maetrik
The Poem
[Ellum Audio]
I still prefer the stuff Eric Estornel produces as Maetrik over his Maceo Plex guise, and this track really sums up why: rib-shaking beats and simple but devastating basslines. Massive.

Ian Pooley
CompuRhythm (Dixon 4/4 Treatment)
[Innervisions]
Have such good memories of catching Dixon at Barcelona in Sonar this year, and he’s fast become one of my favourites. This is his best remix yet, maybe after the 2011 Singing rerubs.

Casey Anderson – Time Out Hong Kong Interview – DJ Box

From Time Out Hong Kong:

25-year-old Casey Anderson is a life-time music geek – in the very best sense. While growing up in the small Florida town of Crystal River (“It’s kind of in the swamp, definitely not Miami”) Anderson played in various bands throughout his teens, eventually releasing his first album with his group So Does Plastic in 2003. “We had this indie-folk-punk sound, but we all played acoustic instruments. I played the accordion, keyboard and guitar, and we had a bassoonist and lots of other weird instruments.” While always a big home listener of electronic music, it wasn’t until he moved to Asia for studies that Anderson experienced his first proper party, an unforgettable overnight beach bash on a remote shore of Lamma Island. Soon after, he moved to Osaka, Japan, where he took up DJing with abandon and began playing professionally.

He returned to Hong Kong to take a job as a music consultant for Stattus, where he procures and produces background music for commercial spaces and DJs fashion events. Hong Kong party-goers will know him best for his appearances at the Destroyed HK summer beach parties and regular stints at Yumla, although he’s… [continue reading]
