Premiere: Alexander Robotnick – Springtime


Aquatic swells, popping droplets, oscillating and unspooling out of the source, cascading into a gathering force. Cyclical and transformative, movements upon movements, a latticed, ever-growing torrent. Its components, tributary after tributary bungling through, around and over a budding, blooming landscape; invigorating and harvesting a new terrain. Pollinating other vessels for adaptation and evolution, embedded within them an understanding of constant change. A waterfall advancing towards the unassailable vastness of its motherland taking the sediment of winter with it. The unforgiving, wilting and decay of cold giving way to life and nurture of morning dew.

Throughout his long and colourful career, the pioneering Italo Disco producer Alexander Robotnick could not be accused of sticking to the tried and tested. Not to disappoint, Robotnick has taken on an Italian classic: Antonio Lucio Vivaldi’s – The Four Seasons and we've nabbed the premier of opener "Springtime". Although appropriated through different music mechanisms, Robotnick has used this source material as a springboard for his own musical ideas, creating deep house that is averse to style tropes and defies expectation in a way that only he and his enigmatic, changeable self could.
