Shit Robot Announces New Single, Feat.
LCD Soundsystem’s Nancy Whang!
From The Cradle to the Rave Out NOW
“Take ‘Em Up” Single Available
November 30th via DFA Records
Last week we rolled out the technicolor video for Shit Robot’s “Take ‘Em Up,” and now we’re excited to release the full details for the single. “Take ‘Em Up” will be available on 12″ vinyl & as a digital single, with both versions due out November 30th via DFA Records (full tracklisting below).
The vinyl version of the single will include remixes of “Take ‘Em Up” by Marcus Marr and Mark E, with John Talabot and Michael Mayer contributing additional remixes to the digital package. From the Cradle to the Rave is a near perfect album, and “Take Em Up” is one reason why- the interplay between Marcus “Shit Robot” Lambkin’s loping synthesizer disco-funk and Nancy Whang’s unflappable vocals is, simply, great.
Now, that track yields added dividends through its pairing with a collection of remixes from an eclectic group of estimable artists. Marcus Marr opens his remix with brooding synths and solitary vocals before bursting into blissful electronic pop at the chorus. Germany’s Michael Mayer also contributes an epically inventive take on “Tuff Enuff,” which is an otherworldly
listening experience that literally builds toward take off.
The video, directed by Eoghan Kidney, follows Nancy on a multi-colored, psychedelic voyage around Brooklyn. The track highlights the distinctive
sound Lambkin has created- massive beats, complemented by the irresistable vocals of Whang.
