After more than a decade DJing other people’s records in dark rooms all over the globe, in 2004 Shit Robot – aka Dubliner Marcus Lambkin – finally departed his adopted New York home for a small country town outside of Stuttgart, where he got on with the overdue task of releasing his own music.
After a series of club 12”s, in late 2010, Lambkin released his debut album, ‘From The Cradle To The Rave’, one of electronic music’s recent gems. With guests including James Murphy, Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip and Nancy Wang, the 10-track record was described as a “great bleep forward” by the Guardian and “something special” by Pitchfork, and sealed with a nice 7.1.
In 2011, Lambkin introduced The Shit Robot Show, his first live AV offering. TSRS has lit up clubs and festivals the world over, including prime slots at Electric Picnic, Nuits Sonores, Lovebox, SXSW and more.
2012’s ‘Space Race’/‘Teenage Bass’ 12” took him back to the floor, before 2013’s double- dose of killer singles: ‘Feels Real’ featuring JENR, aka Luke Jenner, and ‘We Got A Love’, featuring Reggie Watts. The latter, released in October 2013, found a range of supporters from the usual club suspects to BBC Radio 1 deejays.
‘We Got A Love’ is also the title of his second album, due for release in February 2014. Like his debut, it promises a smart mix of collaborations with family, friends and faces from a little further beyond.
With live dates for TSRS planned for 2014, Lambkin continues to DJ, with his busy diary taking him from favoured spots across Europe and the US, to new, dark corners across the globe.
