The Robot has been doing cool things and you haven’t noticed

8 December, 2011

it looks that I'm having fun :P

 

Hi there!, I just wanted to add here a small recap of what I have been doing in the past two months:

In October I was DJing on Casa Jager, a wild party organized by Jägermeister. The secret party was on a big chalet outside Madrid with some cool bands playing there such as Health, Juanita y los Feos or my new discovering, The Cobras a savage electro-something duo from Galicia. My dj set was an all around rock & roll set, it was big fun. You can listen to a selection of the tracks I played there in this Spotify playlist.

Also, in November I did a gig in the reformed Sala Siroco, which now has a super cool lounge bar with awesome cocktails. The sound is awesome too and it’s great to DJ in this place. I think they are revolutionizing the night scene in madrid with some cool parties they are hosting. The set here was mainly composed of soul, funk and disco, and there is an Spotify playlist for it too, check it out here.

I will be doing more gigs in the following months and posting cool stuff, stay tuned on my twitter account @therobot or my Facebook page.
