Robot84 – 11 Inspirational House Tracks


Robot84 has featured numerous times on the pages of LV, as well as regularly in Le Visiteur mixes. He has an uncanny ear for a club track and excels in turning often under appreciated tracks into unforgettable peak time gems. A special mention here goes to his tracks Robot84 vs Native dub which is a monster club jam and his rework of I Feel You, go and hunt them out.

Now Robot84 is back with the throbbing club heater Cosmic Accident which lands on vinyl on the 20th May featuring Martin Luther King atop a gem of an acidic bassline, which is ably helped in the hands in the air department by a wicked loopy key riff. It’s another classy addition to the Robot84 discography. You can grab it HERE

Cosmic Accident is a fully inspirational house track so we asked Scott the man behind Robot84 to give us some of his own inspirational house moments.

Robot84 – 11 Inspirational House Tracks
1. Mr Fingers – Can You Feel it?

This is a classic house track from one of the true pioneers of house music. For me, this track epitomises everything that house music was and still is.

2. Lil Louis – The Conversation.

Probably the best sax line in any house tune ever. It has a such a unique, soulful personality. And, to add to that, a bassline to die for! I played this as my opening track a lot back in the day, it always gets the dancers on the floor.

3. Davina – Don’t you want it?

One of the best that came out of Detroit, and there were many greats! Produced by Mad Mike, a master of his craft. Many fond memories of hearing this at the Sub Club, Glasgow in the 90s.

4. Moodymann – The Third Track

Such a great record. Piano perfection and a fat disco baseline – I love it. What’s not to like? I was very fortunate to DJ with Kenny in the 90s in Edinburgh – just the once, what an honour in my Djing career.

5. Ten City – That’s the Way Love is

Heavenly vocals from Byron Stingly. Put this record on, and those first few seconds will draw me right in, it makes me smile, inside and out. A firm favourite and always has a place in my record box!

6. Frankie Knuckles – Only the Strong Survive

Fantastic interpretation of the Billy Paul classic. A fine of example of a remake almost outdoing the brilliance of the original. Frankie took this soulful tune, turned it into a Classic Chicago House cut and made it very much his own.

7. Don Carlos – Alone

One of the best examples of classic Italian house. It has never left my record box in 25 years and I doubt it ever will – a sound that’s never dated.

8. Kings of Tomorrow – Finally, Danny Krivit edit

Sounds as fresh today as it did when it smashed onto the scene in the early 00s. Sublime vocals. Seriously, the most beautiful vocals from Julie McKnight.

9. The Detroit Experiment – Think Twice

Carl Craig’s finest house moment. Such an uplifting vibe. When that horn kicks in, I never want it to stop.

10. Deep Sensation – Somewhere, Somehow (There’s a Soul Heaven)

Soulful house at its best from the Glasgow production duo who, in my opinion, prove that although house music’s roots may be firmly planted across the pond, the sound was being expertly developed and evolving all over the globe – even in good old Glasgow, the city of my birth.

11. The Bucketheads – The Bomb (Armand Van Helden Re-edit)

Had to mention at least one half of New York legends, Masters at Work, who could have commanded their own list in itself. When house, meets disco this is what you get, outstanding production from Kenny Dope. It’s the perfect ‘get out of jail’ card – works every time!
