The title of their debut album ,Sturm und Drang' (translated literally it means "Storm and Stress") takes its name from the turbulent German literary period of the same name which championed the emphatic struggles of the volatile emotional self. Sturm und Drang captures the current feelings and attitudes of young freethinking musicians Sacha Robotti and Cord Henning Labuhn. Although, while it draws on literary influences, it isn’t an attempt at setting a soundtrack to these famous Germanic literary works. The album is born out of and inspired by the nocturnal lives and the creative surroundings of the duo, who currently reside in Berlin and Buenos Aires. Robosonic deliver intelligent and multidimensional dance music that is at home in clubs, decadent penthouse parties, alternative festivals and demonstrations, posh discotheques, illegal raves, fashion shows and obscure private soirées from Berlin and Milan to New York and Buenos Aires, but also on your walkman and the ghettoblaster in your kitchen. The framework of the album is a humorous, cynical exposure of bourgeois German culture and language. It can be interpreted as a critical discourse in the constant struggle to describe music through words, while the music follows its own dramaturgy and aesthetics. The design of the cover is a tongue in cheek reference to the famous publisher 'Reclam' and its reknown small yellow books every German pupil had to labour over in high school. In the CD booklet you will find "Interpretationen zu Sturm und Drang", acting as the "literary" part of the album project, taking the concept of the successful club vinyl maxis "Yasmin" (inkl. KOLETZKI & MEINDL und THE COCONUT WIRELESS Remixes) and "Die Verwandlung" (inkl. JESSE ROSE und CHRISTOPHER JUST Remixes) one step further. Despite widely diverging influences and a daring iconoclastic style, „Sturm und Drang“ has one main line: Freedom, initiative and emotion in a driving 4/4 beat.
