The MFR vision is simple. Ignore the norm and broaden the definition of electronic music in order to deliver it to as many music lovers as possible.
My Favorite Robot is the trio of Jared Simms, James Teej, and Voytek Korab, three Canadian DJ/producers who in a space of a few short years have become a central part of the global electronic music scene.
Simms & Korab originally formed the My Favorite Robot act in Montreal back in 2002 and the label in 2008, shortly after Jared’s move to Toronto from Montreal. At the same time, the duo hooked up with the No19 Music crew and James Teej and a new chapter in Canadian music history was born. Teej, who was already recording for Rekids and other influential imprints, soon became involved in the My Favorite Robot label and a musical affinity between himself and Simms & Korab lead to the duo becoming a trio. Whilst their good friends at No.19 went on to form the massively successful Art Department, the boys at MFR worked alongside them building their own label into a global beacon for quality electronic music.
My Favorite Robot Records has received huge critical acclaim and has released music from the likes of Tim Paris, Sasse, Nitin, Chloe, Michael J Collins, Kenny Glasgow, Jonny White, Phonogenic, Fairmont, Jori Hulkkonen, & Emerson Todd to name but a few.
2011 and 2012 saw My Favorite Robot releasing on Life & Death, Last Night On Earth and Visionquest, and 2012 is even brighter with an album project upcoming in 2013 on No.19 Music. There are also plans for a series of label driven events around the globe. Already established as a force to be reckoned with it seems it is now time for the Robots to take on the world…..
