MUSIC FOR THE STYLISH GENT: SHIT ROBOT
Marcus Lambkin lives in a Schloss (That's Castle to you.) and is married to the spawn of Counts & Countesses. He also fronts a Krazy Krautsound band called, "Shit Robot". His past includes stints being an apprentice cabinet maker (a boy needs a trade.)and DJ'ing in the hippper than thou clubs of New York.
City, that is.
His debut CD "Cradle To The Rave" is a melange of Krautsound and Lower Eastside white boy Electro beats. His sound is retro, but, not in a cloying "Fanny Pack" sorta way. It's like being in the best basement club in a dodgy 'hood in 1984.
Of course I would have been, oh, six or seven at the time so I'm just imagining.
Debut track "Tuff Enuff" is funkified getting ready to go out and cause some mayhem music to the nth degree. Like a beat heavy Bong rip of really good Kush, it hits you right where they used to do lobotomy's.
