Shit Robot Announces New 12” on DFA, “Teenage Bass”
b/w “Space Race,” the First Release In His New Project,
The Green Machine

Shit Robot returns with his first new material since the release of his debut long-player, 2010’s From The Cradle To The Rave. After spending much of 2010 and 2011 touring the globe with his live show – including a string of dates opening/performing with LCD Soundsystem during their final shows in NYC – the rebooted Robot is back with The Green Machine.

The first result of his Stuttgart/New York studio adventures is a double-header of dancefloor jams, “Teenage Bass” b/w “Space Race,” which will be released digitally and on vinyl via DFA on May 21, 2012. It’s the first in a series of releases called The Green Machine, which will culminate in an album early next year.

Lead cut “Teenage Bass” rides a rude EBM bassline and rave alert sirens, before expanding further with key changing chords and a defining arpeggiator. The hypnotic “Space Race” is a distant relative of 2007’s “Chasm” – a meandering, melodic, star-gazing Robo-techno workout.

Speaking about the new release, 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.” A limited number of each of The Green Machine 12” releases will feature customized, hand-finished sleeves, available only from the DFA webstore. You can pre-order the limited releases from the DFA web-shop.

To mark the new release, Shit Robot has announced a series of live The Shit Robot Show/DJ dates across the world, with more soon to be announced. In addition, a new range of Shit Robot merchandise is now available from the DFA webstore. You can grab Robot coffee mugs, pins, stamped “Wong Galaxy” white labels and a rather nifty From The Cradle To The Rave value pack, which includes a vinyl, CD and pin for $15.

US Tour Dates
5/25 – San Francisco
7/01 – Chicago

 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.

21 years. It might sound like a long time, but for Shit Robot, it was the number of years it took to put together all the pieces, live all of the experiences, and hear all of the sounds that would ultimately lead to his debut full-length album, From The Cradle To The Rave, which sees its long-awaited release today via DFA Records!
Produced by James Murphy, who refers to Shit Robot (aka Marcus Lambkin) as “The Godfather of DFA,” From The Cradle… was well worth the wait. One spin of the record will prove that. Featuring guests such as Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy & Nancy Whang, Juan Maclean, and planningtorock, Shit Robot’s debut is a veritable who’s who of the DFA family.
Even with its multiple guest appearances, From The Cradle…is decidedly Marcus Lambkin, decidedly Shit Robot. One listen and it’s clear that this album was worth waiting for. Like a fine cocktail, some of the ingredients are aged. Some are shaken, some are stirred- most people wait twenty-one years for their first drink. Dance music fans are about to have theirs served up by Shit Robot.

DFA’s Shit Robot Gives Away Long-Awaited First Album Track!From The Cradle To The Rave out September 21st

Shit Robot’s From The Cradle To The Rave
Comes Out September 21st
 via DFA Records

Shit Robot, referred to as “The Godfather of DFA” by James Murphy (who also produced the record), is releasing his debut full-length From The Cradle To The Rave via DFA Records on September 21st, but today we’re thrilled to give away the first official track off the album,
“I Found Love.”

Shit Robot, aka Marcus Lambkin, is no stranger to the DFA family- in fact, if anything, he’s one of the label’s elder statesmen, having met James after moving to New York City from Dublin. Shit Robot cut his teeth in the gritty New York club scene pf the early 90’s, learning how to mix and DJ properly at now-defunct clubs like Brownie’s and Save The Robots. By 1994, Marcus had made a name for himself, becoming a mainstay of the NYC club circuit.
Now he is ready to unveil his debut album. Two 12-inch singles laid the groundwork for what would eventually become From The Cradle To The Rave, but the final product was much more evolved – Murphy co-wrote the album’s opening track, “Tuff Enuff” and from there, the album moves on to “I Found Love,” which recalls the vocal style of Barry White. “Losing My Patience” features vocals from Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor while LCD Soundsystem’s Nancy Whang adds her sultry voice to “Take ‘Em Up.”
Even with its multiple guest appearances from DFA royalty, From The Cradle To The Rave is an album that may have taken over 20 years to come to fruition, but we can promise you this:
it was worth the wait.
