Headman - Manhead

Zürich (CH)
dj

Over the past seven years Robi Insinna a.k.a Headman emerged as one of the most influencial producers.

Singled-out after a superb rework of Seelenlufts Manila in 2002, he became one of the most sought-after remixers of the last few years, giving his treatment to Franz Ferdinand, Mylo, Scissor sisters, The Rapture, Röyksopp, Placebo or Roxy Music among many others. Most of his Remixes are now considered as dancefloor classics by DJs.

In 2006 Headman really confirmed his status of most-wanted remixer. His remix of Standing in the way of control from the band The Gossip has been acclaimed worldwide as another Headman classic. And no less than Kitsuné and Zombie Nation asked him to give their tunes the reboosting treat they deserved.

This constant ability to revamp and reboost a song makes Headman a proper technician of the dancefloor. He also possesses a multi-faceted personality that he unveals in his two full-length albums "It Rough" and "On" both released on Gomma records in 2002 and 2006. The single "It Rough" and its remix by Chicken Lips were his first acclaimed hits. "On" features many of his musical friends. Stephane Dewaele from Soulwax, Anthony Roman from Radio 4, Matt Safer from The Rapture, Ben Rymer from Fat Truckers and Tara, amongst others collaborated with Headman, who produced 12 tracks that mix indie rock urge with dancefloor electronica.

On top of everything else, Robi's projects are extraordinary notably for their artwork: each of his releases is designed by Robi himself, since he's also internationally respected as a painter and has been exhibiting all over Europe.

Robi created his own label Relish recordings. It reflects his desire of enlarging the spectrum of dance music. In each of his projects Robi puts the quality of the music in the foreground.

And last but not least, in March 2007 the release of Headman's on and on club version taken from the Relish label compilation took place. This 12” includes two great remixes by Riot in Belgium and Zombie Nation!

Expect great things...
