Robag should need no introduction to my regular readers – this is the 7th time that his unique quirky masterpieces have been featured – in just 725 (ish) reviews.
I get excited upon seeing the word Robag – each of his tracks is uniquely wondrous in a minimal structure but with so much personality.
A gorgeous deep lowline bassline is a particular favourite element of mine here, along with the percussion and the industrial noises – oh it is just all great. Robag Wruhme is the man.
A slightly meloncholic and downtempo effort with elephant noises, maybe like Radiohead if they tried pills.
This is stunningly beautiful and a real grower – note the video is ripped from a set.
There was a time when M.A.N.D.Y and Booka Shade were absolutely at the forefront of electronic music and well in front of many with their respective accessible brands of catchy minimal. Booka Shade in particular sound tired and dated now but this remix by the excellent Robag Wruhme is a beast. A chugging beauty.
I love the enchanting dreamy whispering minimal featured on Robag’s work.
A very fitting 500th tune for my top tunes blog – not counting the one that was deleted with subsequent warning received from the Google Nazi’s.
This is dark, twisted and minimal like a thunderstorm in tornado alley approaching that doesn’t quite deliver the goods and it only rains a little bit. An eery finish. In fact you could finish a mix with this and leave the listener slightly disturbed. Excellent.
Melodic techno, or maybe tech-house – sounds like it belongs with Cocoon though it is on the almost equally magnificent Kompact.
Almost sounds like it is from 2007.
I do have a lot of time for Robag – some of his stuff is great though some of it just passes me by, same with his DJ sets. Definitely not for everyone!
