Shit Robot

Cubed / Rotation - Inc. Edmonson & Vin Sol Remixes

For Me Me Me 14, I’m proud to announce the return of Shit Robot to the label for his first full length EP, following up from his previous contribution to our We We We Charity compilation, and last year’s remix for Forriner.

Joining him is fellow label mainstay Edmondson (of Lissoms fame), as well as Vin Sol (Nonplus / Clone) making his label debut, after me wanting to snare him forever due to my status as a Vin Sol super fan!

Shit Robot provides us with 2 RAW house cuts.
On the A side we have the deep and bumping “Cubed”.
For the B he gives us “Rotation” which is equal parts Analogue-Jack to Rave-Synth.

Edmondson turns in a typically unique remix, yet again hinting at his background in non 4/4 sounds, and showcasing his unbelievable deftness for sound design.

Vin Sol’s remix of Rotation expertly captures the spirit of late 80s house in a way that only the original early pioneers, Vin Sol himself, and a perhaps a handful others seem to pull off legitimately.

Also included as a digital exclusive is the bonus track “Shit Robot - The Life To Come”, for that added low slung jazz-house fix.

Geoff Leopard's Me Me Me continues to be an imperative force on the scene as it skips merrily past it's ten record milestone and into the teenies.

Number 12 on the label sees Scotland's Austin Ato step up and drop a 'quadruple A-side' in the words of the label head, who famously 'couldn't pick a favourite'!

It's a top notch affair as we start off with the hi-nrg pump of "He Can Ride". Pairing a simple but effective three note riff to gliding bass and crisp drums, LFO filter tweaks and rising strings add to the sheer excitement and euphoria of this serotonin-releasing sugar rush.

"Dah Dah Dah" sees an authentic old skool house flavour revisited as a catchy vocal sample meets a conga-driven house groove and a trickski saxaphone noodle. Comparisons could be made with MCDE and a fair bit of Moods & Grooves' output but that would be doing a injustice to Ato who stands alone as a unique producer.

"Maelstrom" seems an apt name for the attack of wooden bass, rolling keys and rising strings that decorate a charged vintage acid house beat while "Ben's Groove" concludes proceedings - nodding its hat to Tiger & Woods and Shir Khan as it executes a timeless slice of chopped n looped disco-house music that'll keep the terrace jumping till dawn.... 


Man Power’s Me Me Me label, a firm favourite with KP here at the shop, presents its first compilation, with profits donated to the Help Refugees charity.

Over 11 releases Geoff Leopard's label has established itself as a defined home for tricksi dancefloor movements, intricately produced house music and electronic curveballs. With an understated but highly skilled roster of artists, including Man Power himself, the label has found itself in countless record boxes across varying locations and styles.

Here we get two new signings (Shit Robot and Awol) alongside two label stalwarts, Pale Blue and Cult Of Glamour. Shit Robot contributes some straight up, M1-powered, late night house music while Awol opts for a more stripped back, deeper affair with nods to electro. On side B Pale Blue gets cerebral and sensual with a mallet-guided smoocher before Cult Of Glamour closes proceedings with a star-bound Italo-tinged number that hits the jugular head on. Top stuff! 


Man Power’s Me Me Me label presents us with a very special new compilation, ‘We We We’, which will see all profits donated to the vital Help Refugees charity. Help Refugees, is the leading UK NGO in a new movement of humanitarian aid, helping to plug the gaps in services not provided to those displaced by war. The man behind the compilation’s concept is Man Power aka Geoff Kirkwood, an established producer with credits for his off kilter mix of house, disco, ambient and techno on labels like John Talabot’s Hivern Discs, ESP Institute and Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondent.
Kicking off the set, Pional’s ‘Night Charmer’ is a typically inventive cut with icy drones and dehumanised vocals, while ‘Quantume Reach’ by Juan Maclean (feat Amy Douglas) is gorgeously off beat house with thoughtful chords and spine-tingling vocals with a poignant message. Onto the B-side and Force Majeure up the intensity with a percussion packed tribal tonker which flirts with disco and Italo before settling down as a techy banger. The polyrhythmic rattle continues on Edmondson's "Village" a trippy mix of minimal-style sound design, future primitive rhythms and occasional melody.
This is a compilation jam-packed with a broad array of accomplished and standout sounds, and that it is all for charity only makes it an even more essential and welcome release.


The mysterious Vyvyan lands on Me Me Me with a pair of floor focussed disco techno mutations as compelling as they are fun. Paul Woolford drops by on remix duties, a genuine UK legend, who by this stage is irrefutably nestled in the top tier of the British electronic music Royal Family. His remix perfectly displays the unconventional wit, and mastery of groove, that’s propelled him to where he is today. I imagine its the only track we’ll hear this year which begins on a breaks and baseline assault, and ends on samples of farmyard animals. Finishing off the release we have a remix by Futureboogie's Christophe in advance of his own artist EP on Me Me Me later this year. Christophe skews the original’s frenetic rhythms in to a vintage sounding bumping piece of machine driven house with an Italo-esque twist, which is as good as this description sounds.

We Have Love - Inc. Dauwd / Asok Remixes

In a beautiful stroke of serendipity, Me Me Me discover some hidden talent from Newcastle who actually used to serve pints to label head Man Power in his local boozer! Coming from a more bass / dubstep orientated background, Edmondson has now turned his hand to expertly crafted house cuts, leaving the vast majority of the also-rans way, way behind. It's clear from just listening to a few bars of "We Have Love" that the boy's got skills. The groove captures you instantly, while the filtered vocal hook and those squelchy, spring reverb perc hits affirm Edmondson's meticulous and deeply rooted creativity. Enlisted for remix duties is Dauwd, who also inhabits Berlin where Man Power now resides. He takes "We Have Love" down a kind of more delicate and psychedelized route. It’s very pretty and has plenty of skip to it. "PSG" sees Edmondson toy with a more syncopated beat palette, landing somewhere between downbeat and garage and with a distinctly UK sound. ASOK's drafted in for the final remix, turning out one of his finer moments as he transforms "PSG" into a swirling epic littered with vintage Casio drum hits, a mid 90s progressive crescendo and skillfully constructed rhythms. I'd agree with Man Power and say this is up there as some of his best work to date, and stadium-blasting large. All good then! Me Me Me continue the pressure.... 

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Me Me Me deliver again! This time it's Edmondson that takes it to the terraces for a pumpin' house number that's deliciously psychedelic

Pale Blue

Have You Passed Through This Night / Comes Through ( Incl Pional Remix)

Pale Blue is the new alias for Mike Simonetti, NYC underground legend and long term contributor to the global dance music community. Here, he's joined by Elizabeth Wight for a seductive, three track EP on Man Power's Me Me Me label. "Have You Passed Through" is raw and daring, its female vocal reminiscent of innovative early electro, this is an intoxicating late night anthem of leftfield electronica. Its lyrics are taken from the film The Thin Red Line, a movie about mans destruction of nature, his world and himself. "Come Home" is equally alluring, with a dreamier narrative and thrusting, forward-propelled drums that recalls a high speed drag race down the rainbow road. It's angelic vocal washes and heavenly strings converging on the bubbling acid and suspended tension wonderfully, making for a heady and expansive trip. Spanish new kid on the block, Hivern regular, Pional gets enlisted on remix duties (good work MP), and twists up "Comes Home" with fresh drums, lysergic elements and his own hi-sheen sound. Wonderful stuff.
