When your name is Sacha Robotti, it is pretty evident that you’re set for a life working in a synthesizer factory, the show biz or perhaps even Artificial Intelligence. However, lacking the patience for science and the temperament for drama it seemed that his future and luckily his talent lies in music. Classically trained as a Cellist Sacha discovered the rumblings of the underground house and techno scene in his native Brussels, Belgium in the 90s. In 1995 put down his bow and picked up the turntable. Influenced by the greats of this era: Green Velvet, DJ Funk, Aphex Twin, DJ Sneak, Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Thomas Bangalter, he was soon honing and mastering his own DJ skills. Graduating with a degree in architecture from Edinburgh in 2001, he moved to Berlin to get fully submerged in the underbelly of the city’s electronic nightlife.After his first self-released vinyls and an album under the Berlin DJ duo alias Robosonic as well as studies in music with Karl Bartos (formerly of Kraftwerk), Sacha Robotti put his name on the map as a solo producer with his toe- wobbling solo debut “Tingly Trumpets” in 2010. Proving that he has his finger on the pulse and his eye on the prize, Sacha was responsible for curating the prolific and much respected Berlin Kreuzberg Institut podcast, showcasing electronic dance music by established names and promoting new talent. Focusing more on solo work, Sacha found a home at Klasse Recordings for his early solo releases, teaming up with label head honcho Luca Lozano for their first release - “Bartok” kicked off a label that has now truly landed in Berlin and well beyond.DJ gigs as far out as Toronto, NY, Sydney, Mexico, as well as an extremely busy production and international tour schedule with Robosonic after their 2012 hits “Worst Love” and “The Edge”, haven’t stopped Sacha from remaining a resident club motor in Berlin - relentlessly playing in all the clubs worth their salt, whatever the season, with realness, skill and a positive attitude. In terms of original productions, he released the bass driven “Move” on Klasse backed by stellar remixes by Rafael Kakudo and Bubba, as well as the collaborative track “Fotograf” he produced with Qzen - known for her work with legends John Tejada and 40 Thieves – with remixes by Tim Green and Michael Tello of PillowTalk. Sacha also remixed for some top labels including Trapez, Klasse and OFF for artists like Deepchild and Mr. Ho. 2012 was an Olympic year for Mr. Robotti as his track “T he Major” feat. DJ Rush dropped on SF label Dirtybird in January (played by every bigname DJ - from Seth Troxler to Ellen Allien, Miss Kittin, Joris Voorn and the whole crew around Claude Vonstroke), and a bomb Robotti remix of Johanna Knutsson’s “Groove Support” came out on Klasse Recordings in Spring. His sound can probably be described as meandering between the dirty bassheavy “booty” plains of house music and its’ rare exotic shores, with a futuristic edge and layers upon layers of depth.In late Summer and Fall of that year, Sacha released three epic remixes: of Audiojack feat. Kevin Knapp on Gruuv, of Zombie Disco Squad feat. DJ Funk on Made To Play, and of Deo & Z-Man on the classic Berlin techno label Opossum Recordings. His recent original ghetto-house flavoured “The Big Ol EP” which dropped on Klasse Recordings (with remixes by Dudley Strangeways and the legendary Waxmaster Maurice from Chicago’s Dance Mania fame), were heavily supported by the original house gangster DJ Sneak and Tripmastaz among others. Moreso, Sacha met up with his buddy Kill Frenzy in Brussels to make two signature tracks in two days: “Go To The Mo” which came out on Dirtybird, and “I Like It” which he signed to Shadow Child’s new label FOOD. This release is set to cause havoc when it’s released in May 2013, together with a fun Kill Frenzy & Sacha Robotti show on BBC 1 Xtra. Mixmag thinks Sacha’s “one to watch”, and so do we!Keep your eyes and ears peeled for this gentleman with a weird little thing for sweaty dance workouts & happy bass- massaged faces! He’s on fire.
