Marcus Lambkin aka Shit Robot returns with his first new material since his debut LP, 2010’s ‘From The Cradle To The Rave’. After spending much of 2010 and 2011 touring the globe with his live show, Shit Robot is back with ‘The Green Machine’.
The first result of his latest studio work are Teenage Bass b/w Space Race, which will be released on vinyl and digitally via DFA on May 21. It’s the first in a series of releases called ‘The Green Machine,’ which will plateau with an album in Spring 2013.
Lead track Teenage Bass has an EBM bassline and rave alert sirens, before expanding further with key changing chords and arpeggiator. The hypnotic Space Race is a distant relative of 2007’s Chasm – a meandering, melodic, star-gazing Robo-techno track. Speaking about the new single, Shit Robot said: “After the album, I just wanted to go back to my roots and make some dance 12″s, music for people to get drunk and jump around to.”
Listen to a sample of the single below.
A limited number of each of ‘The Green Machine’ 12” releases will feature customized, hand-made sleeves available via the DFA webstore.
To mark the new release, Shit Robot has announced a series of live/DJ dates, with more soon to be announced.
5/25 – San Francisco
7/01 – Chicago
