The Robot Scientists
Posted on Juli 4, 2011 by Oliver Schneider
The Robot Scientists are a DJ-Team from Saarbrücken and Völklingen, Germany. Markus Schneider, Stefan Maurer and Ronald Springer are experimenting in their laboratory with essences of Italo-Disco, Electro-Disco, Nu-Disco and Belearic sounds. As sound scientists they know time is relative and everything has happened before and will happen again. Mixing oldschool moroder bassline disco with new sounds and tracks, they try to pick you up for a flight into the wide open space of modern dance music. Their „Spaced Out Disco“ und „Cosmic Beach Club“ mixes combine 70ties Disco-Funk, Space-Disco, Krautrock and Boogie, 80ties Synth-Pop, Electro-Funk, Italo-Disco and New Wave, Balearic House, Indie-Dance and Electroclash. They already played some of their extensive vinyl collection at Introducing Festival in Berlin, in Zürich and Paris and spinning hypnotic disco beats regulary in Saarbrücken at different locations.
Thanks to their long experience as music-lovers and their great sense of picking up the latest devolopments they have fans and followers from all over the world: 9000 friends on myspace, 1200 followers on soundcloud and over 15.000 downloads of their mixes and edits. One of their biggest fans, David Caretta, part of the „International DJ Gigolo“ family around DJ Hell, released their first ordinary record in 2010 on his Parisian label “Space Factory”: the “Space Love EP”. Producer Fread Scholl and guitarist Eric Schemer helped with the recording of the two tracks. I’m the brother of Markus, designed the artwork for this release and still trying to open up their retrofuturistic universe with spacy dub, post-dubstep, skweee, kraut and vintage electronics to bend space and time a little tighter together. In the bright near future they’re about to establish a new label called “Emerald & Doreen” and I’ll try to help them organising a big music and art event at the Weltkulturerbe Völklingen.
