When your name is Sacha Robotti, it is pretty evident that you’re set for a life working in a synthesizer factory, the show biz or perhaps even Artificial Intelligence. However, lacking the patience for science and the temperament for drama it seemed that his future and luckily his talent lay in music. Classically trained as a Cellist Sacha discovered the rumblings of the underground house and techno scene in his native Brussels, Belgium in the 90s. Soon after, he put down his bow and picked up the turntable. Influenced by the greats of this era: Green Velvet, DJ Funk, Aphex Twin, DJ Sneak, Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Thomas Bangalter he set himself the task of honing and mastering his DJ skills. Graduating with a degree in architecture from Edinburgh in 2001, he moved to Berlin to get fully submerged in the underbelly of the city’s electronic nightlife. After his first self-released vinyls and an album under the Berlin DJ duo alias Robosonic as well as studies in music with Karl Bartos (formerly of Kraftwerk), Sacha Robotti put his name on the map as a producer with his toe-wobbling solo debut “Tingly Trumpets” in 2010. Proving that he has his finger on the pulse and his eye on the prize, Sacha is responsible for curating the prolific and much respected Berlin Kreuzberg Institut podcast, showcasing electronic dance music by established names and promoting new talent. Focusing on solo work, Sacha found his 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 well beyond. DJ gigs as far out as Toronto, NY or Sydney haven’t stopped Sacha from remaining a resident club motor in Berlin - relentlessly playing in all the clubs worth their salt, whatever the season. In terms of original productions, he recently released the bass driven “Move” on Klasse backed by stellar remixes by Rafael Kakudo and Bubba, as well as the collaborative track “Fotograf” he produced with Qzen - known for her work with legends John Tejada and 40 Thieves. He also remixed for some top labels including Klasse, Trapez and OFF for artists like Mr. Ho, Deepchild to name but a few. 2012 looks like an Olympic year for Mr. Robotti as he patiently begins work on his debut artist album, his new track “The Major” dropped on SF label Dirtybird in January, and remixes of his track “Fotograf” by Tim Green and Michael Tello (PillowTalk) as well as a SR remix of Johanna Knutsson’s “Groove Support” are coming out soon on Klasse Recordings. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for this gentleman with a weird little thing for sweaty dance workouts & happy bass-massaged faces!
