MY FAVORITE ROBOT (CANADA)
Date Nite (ALBUM RELEASE PARTY)
Dj M3 (green gorilla, monarch, sleight of hands)
Date Nite's formation came to fruition when three like-minded spirits, Jason, Annie and Candy converged during an annual NASA Jet Propulsion conference on 'Robotic Exploration of the Solar System.' Realizing they had a shared love for science and beats, they assembled a musical collective dedicated to dynamic ass shaking. Calling San Francisco their home and nirvana their vacation home, they call upon their scifi-paganistic background for inspiration. Date Nite is a convergence of art, music and boot knocking. In their spare time, the team concocts various recipes and libations; most notably their drink called "Moonmilk" (moonshine and Milk of Magnesia).
My Favorite Robot
is the trio of Jared Simms, James Teej, and Voytek Korab, three Canadian DJ/producers who in a space of a few short years have become a central part of the global electronic music scene.
Simms & Korab originally formed the My Favorite Robot act in Montreal back in 2002 and the label in 2008, shortly after Jared’s move to Toronto from Montreal. At the same time, the duo hooked up with the No19 Music crew and James Teej and a new chapter in Canadian music history was born. Teej, who was already recording for Rekids and other influential imprints, soon became involved in the My Favorite Robot label and a musical affinity between himself and Simms & Korab lead to the duo becoming a trio. Whilst their good friends at No.19 went on to form the massively successful Art Department, the boys at MFR worked alongside them building their own label into a global beacon for quality electronic music.
2011 and 2012 saw MFR releases on Visionquest, Life & Death, Crosstown, and Sasha’s new Last Night On Earth label but it’s 2013 that will see the most complete project from The Robots to date with a new album slated for release on No.19 Music in the first half of the year . There are also plans for a series of label driven events around the globe. Already established as a force to be reckoned with, it seems it is now time for the Robots to take on the world.
