Second installment of the eStreet Teamer series. First one was Latitudes. This one is ROBOTIC EMPIRE. I don’t believe there’s much that needs to be said; RE is one of the more individual, dedicated and successful labels of our interest and era. They’ve been releasing albums since the Pg. 99/Reactor No. 7 split back in 1999, back when Robotic Empire was Robodog and some of us were listening to Limb Bizkit anyway. They’ve since continued to release some highly innovative music in some highly innovative ways, and if proof of this is needed look no further than their latest project, the FLOOR box set.
The tracks on this mix are more or less a personal ‘best of’, keeping in mind their entire catalogue and my limited space for twenty-minute epics. If you’ve an opinion about what I should have included, should’ve not included or should’ve been listening to instead, I would love to hear it.
