Sacha Robotti
From: GERMANY

With a REAL name like Sacha Robotti, it may seem obvious that you’re set for a life working in a synthesizer factory or in Artificial Intelligence. However, this Italian-German, Belgium bred polyglot with a Russian first name, has a huge talent for music, which surfaced very quickly when he started to play the cello excessively from age 7. In his teens in the 90s, Sacha discovered the rumblings of the underground house and techno scene of his native Brussels, which inspired him so much that he put down his bow and picked up the turntables. Influenced by the greats of this era: Green Velvet, Aphex Twin, Jeff Mills, DJ Funk, Thomas Bangalter, Dave Clarke, he was soon honing and mastering his own DJ skills. Graduating with an architecture degree from Edinburgh, he moved to Berlin to get fully submerged in the underbelly of the city’s nightlife at the turn of the millenium.

After first self-released vinyls, Master studies in music with Karl Bartos (formerly of Kraftwerk), and an album under the Berlin DJ duo alias Robosonic with his long-time best production buddy Cord, Sacha Robotti put his name on the map as a solo producer with his toe-wobbling debut “Tingly Trumpets” in 2010. Proving that he has his finger on the pulse and an eye on the prize, he helped to curate the Berlin Kreuzberg Institut podcast, showcasing electronic dance music by established names and promoting new talent. Focusing on solo work, Sacha found a home at Klasse Recordings, 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 beyond.

2012 started as an Olympic year for Mr. Robotti as his track “The Major” feat. DJ Rush dropped on the SF label Dirtybird, a label he has loved and supported since its beginning! The track was played by every bigname DJ - from Seth Troxler to Ellen Allien, Miss Kittin, Joris Voorn and the whole DB crew. Later that year, Sacha released more 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 Opossum. Also, his original “Move EP” with remixes by Tim Green and Michael Tello of PillowTalk, as well as the ghetto-house flavoured “The Big Ol EP” dropped on Klasse Recordings (with a remix by the legendary Waxmaster Maurice from Chicago’s Dance Mania fame!). Moreso, Sacha met up with his buddy Kill Frenzy in Brussels to make two signature tracks: “Go To The Mo” which came out on Dirtybird, and “I Like It” which was signed to Shadow Child’s label FOOD – together with a remix by B-Ju and a fun Kill Frenzy & Sacha Robotti radioshow on BBC 1 Xtra.

2013 made another dream of Sacha’s come true, when his collaboration with the mighty Claude Vonstroke was released on Dirtybird: a VIP version of “Lay It Down – Re-Smoked”, the final track of his latest album “Urban Animal”.

In summer 2014, the release of his collab with Look Like “Loca Lola EP” on Dirtybird, as well as his collab “Puppet” on Jesse Perez label Mr. Nice Guy and a cheeky edit of a 90s ghetto-house track on Klasse's sublabel Down2House, made him new friends and fans all over the world, especially in the USA. DJ gigs as far out as Mexico, NYC, Sydney, Toronto as well as an extremely busy production and international tour schedule with his other projects, haven’t stopped Sacha from remaining a club motor in Berlin - relentlessly playing in all the clubs worth their salt - whatever the season, with realness, skill and a positive attitude, killing it on the decks!

Although Sacha’s sound has evolved throughout the years, one can clearly recognize his signature in everything he creates: meandering between the dirty bassheavy “booty” plains of electronic dance music and its’ futuristic shores; his music is funky, creative, has character, uses a palette of rich sounds and tells a story with layers of depth and emotion. It also has a sonic quality that makes it stand out.
Mixmag thinks Sacha Robotti is “one to watch”! Keep your eyes and ears peeled for this gentleman with a weird little thing for sweaty dance workouts & happy bass-massaged faces…
