About

The official blurb

Spawned long ago from the same sonic soup that produced the likes of Tim Exile (unashamed name-drop); The Big Robot has only recently escaped the servitude of his evil corporate masters… now he is free, and he is most displeased.
Best-known for remixes of Icelandic Bjork-a-like Emiliana Torrini, Germanic electro-maximallists Monosurround, and most recently viral-video-indie-mentalists Ok Go (to be featured on the game ‘Rock Band 3′) The Big Robot is quickly gaining a reputation for precision sonic ruthlessness.
… and a love of toast.

Who is The Big Robot?

The Big Robot is an electric, music-producing beat-machine… on toast!
mmmmm…. toast.

Some (more mainstream) musical influces:

Air, Axwell, Cassius, Daft Punk, Data, Deadmau5, DJ Yoda, Electric Six, Faithless, Fat Boy Slim, Felguk, Groove Armada, Gnarls Barkley, Junkie XL, Justice, Late Night Alumni, LCD Soundsystem, Leftfield, LTJ Bukem, Martin Solveig, Mr Scruff, Mylo, Pendulum, Phonat, Prodigy, Royksopp, Sub Focus, The Crystal Method, The Egg, Thievery Corporation, Underworld, Unicorn Kid, Zero7, blah, blah, etc.

So you write music yeah?

Yes.

Have you written anything I would recognise?

Probably not, but I’ve had a little bit of radio/club play here and there, won a number of competitions (Rough Trade, Monosurround, Rainer von Vielen, Ok Go) and had quite a few remixes released on different labels (Motor Music, MS Records, 17:44 Records, Spanner) – and by the end of 2010 I’ll also have a remix (of Ok Go track ‘White Knuckles’) available for download on the Rock Band Network (so you can play it on XBox360/PS3/Wii).

So where can I hear your stuff?

From the widget on the right (SoundCloud) or you can track down my official releases on Spotify, iTunes, Beatport, Traxsource, Juno (vinyl woo!), all good digitial download stores and the Goblets pub jukebox in Southampton (ask Paddy at the bar about The Big Robot, and he’ll call you a c**t).

What’s with the robot helmet? Are you trying to be Daft Punk?

No, Daft Punk are wildly successful and French.
My helmet is actually an ‘homage’ to Miles Mayhem from 80′s cartoon series M.A.S.K.
It’s cleverly constructed out of cider boxes, duct tape and a virtually impervious fibreglass resin (would make quite a good crash helmet); I made it for a house-party but am now oddly attached to it.

Are you really a robot?

Obviously.

Now go listen to music.
