Featured Artists: Sasse, Big Bully, James What
The My Favorite Robot Records team join forces once again with the ever-excellent Sasse for a stunning new single featuring a remix from James What…
Canada’s My Favorite Robot have been working with some outstanding artists and producers of late, with 2012 seeing original music and remixes from the likes of Jori Hulkkonen, Slok, Amirali, Andrew Grant, Djuma Soundsystem, T.W.I.C.E, Tomas Barfod, Tom Demac, Sid Le Rock, DeadEcho & Tiger Stripes to name just a few. Now the imprint that has become an international hotbed for quality electronic music looks to an old favourite, the excellent Sasse.
Sasse previously released a collaborative single with Phonogenic on the MFRR imprint back in 2010 and has been a close friend of the label ever since.
For those that don’t know Sasse is the Finnish DJ/Producer behind the awesome Moodmusic, a label that has been consistently at the forefront for the last 16 years. Now based in Berlin, Sasse has helped shape modern electronic music, not only with his Moodmusic imprint but also with his standout solo & collaborative releases for the likes of Dirt Crew, Mule Musiq, Highgrade & Bedrock.
For this latest release Sasse has teamed up with the highly talented Big Bully, a vocalist who has previously worked with the likes of Jay Haze, Samim & Adultnapper. ‘Took My Love’ is an old school house workout featuring shuffling drums, acidic synth lines and warm bass as the soundbed for the Chicago inspired vocals.
The original version is followed by a remix from James What who takes time out from his Crosstown Rebels/Murmur/Poker Flat commitments to deliver a wonderfully deep and melancholic mix that perfectly fits the MFRR sound. To accompany the original Sasse turns in his own ‘Detroit mix’, a version that is a surefire dancefloor winner with its late eighties influences worn large! Finally the package is completed with an excellent instrumental, for those who like things unsaid.
Another winner from the Robots stable and another standout single from a tirelessly consistent producer, enjoy!
