Hexstatic Are Back!

Hexstatic Are Back!

The dynamic duo, Hexstatic, return to the fray with their finest album yet. Taking their electro obsession to greater heights than ever before, "When Robots Go Bad" finds Robin Brunson and Stuart Warren-Hill mashing up sounds and influences in search of the ultimate machine groove.

From the first track "Red Laser Beam" they lay out their wares - crunching guitar samples, huge drum box beats and enough synths to drown a nation beneath a sea of (sine) waves. It's such a euphoric opening that it's hard to imagine how they can keep the pressure up but with "Roll Over" they quickly lays any fears to rest. Featuring new vocal find Sabirajade, this is a swinging groove of heavily-layered keyboards and soulful, sultry vocals. "Freak Me" features B+, a female MC from Australia whilst "Prom Night Party" is a complete re-work of a classic 'lost' track from Mike Ladd's "Majesticons" project. "Subway" gives way to Edinburgh's MC Profisee and a tune for a new generation of breakers before the vocoder takes over, leaving the superb "Bust" to offer an object lesson in the contrasting ways in which synths and drum boxes can be used to create cut-up, deconstructed computer boogie dance music.
