“Welcome To The Robots” concerns itself with the history of electronic dance music in the early 80s. The first edition of the CD series WELCOME TO THE ROBOTS holds a selection of “Electro-Pioneers” on 2 CDS. These Electro-Pioneer productions were not about verses and classical arrangements, but rather instrumental pieces with voices and samples, which were used as sound effects. Putting surreal—and oftentimes melodious—computer sounds together in danceable rhythms was the main focus of the Electro-Pioneers. The idea and the realization of WELCOME TO THE ROBOTS comes from Raphael Krickow, known for being part of the internationally successful DJ duo “The Disco Boys”. POEM’s Thomas Janak talked to Raphael about all the things mentioned here and more. Due to a technical error (recorder didn’t work first time round) parts of the conversation may sound a bit rushed but we wanted to make sure that all the information you would need and derserve to get you would get!
