"ELECTRO ISN'T DEAD!" - Robots With Rayguns

The only reason why I haven't deleted my Myspace account is because I always receive friend requests from the most random bands and artists, something that Facebook still lacks. So I received a friend request from Robots With Rayguns and I'm very reluctant to accept unfamiliar people as my friend on myspace and facebook, but the name caught my attention, so I let the friend request linger for about 2 months. When the summer rolled around and I finally had time to browse all of my myspace artist friend requests, I came across this artist, who I instantly fell in love with, well, the sound at least: Robots With Rayguns. I accepted.

After watching the videos and listening to the music, I messaged the artist and asked his permission to be featured on this blog. Without further ado, I would like to introduce the electro & pop sounds of Robots With Rayguns!


"There isn't a lot of information available on me right now because I pulled a 'Polanksi' and fled the country.

Well...it's just me. I started producing music when I was about 13, doing experimental industrial/electro (under the moniker Gravemachine). After a Norwegian death metal band with the same name released an EP which got thrown together with my album on itunes as the same project (and everywhere else on the internet) I decided to focus on my other main project, RWR, in which I composed 80s Hook-driven inspired electropop. Then, this past winter I discovered the blogs. I had no idea there was an audience at all for this type of music, let alone such a rich one. I just finished the first album, "Electro Isnt Dead" which will be released next month, and the first single released through the blogs, "Sugarbaby" seems to have some success. It will be featured in a promotional ad for the August cover-shoot of ASOS Magazine. I guess that's about it for now. Lots of cool things ahead, though. Anything else you want to know or ask just let me know. I'm originally from Baltimore but just last month moved out to Phoenix, Arizona, where I plan on staying indefinitely."

The videos are amazing and the melodies are totally 80s electro pop. Enjoy! - Polygenrous

DELPHIC: Acolyte (The Marriage of Rock & Dance)

This amazing band has achieved the integration of rock and dance. Delphic proved this theory, as the factual and melodious tunes on their new album "Acolyte" ring in new music in 2010. It is important to consider that most rock bands who even consider house as a cousin genre, ultimately fail miserably once they decide to cross-over. Delphic has avoided a catastrophic shift by producing solid and coherent tunes, incorporating electro, pop, rock, and house in one solid album, where all tracks have the potential to be number 1s!

The marriage of rock and dance produces fantastic tunes, hence why this album is definitely a finalist for album of the year.

"Got any E???": Una Noche At The Mix (DESPUES DE HORAS)

We are full swing into a hot & sticky summer! The summer always brings out the best in us all, along with the fucking HEAT! Summer time is when it all goes down. The best parties, the hottest bitches are out & about, the beach conditions are back to normal, the locals basically rule the entire city, and we get to slosh down a hefty load of Superman's from Wet Willies without having to wrap numerous napkins around the cup!

10 years ago a little hole in the wall that has become known as Miami's electronic version of Studio 54 closed it door's due to one shocking regulation that passed and changed SoBe nightlife forever. That was one dreadful summer, but the music continues to always be with us.

I've chopped up some of the best tunes that came out of that monsterous soundsystem we all raised are hands up to every Saturday & Sunday morning. The classics that filled the floor every time the first beat kicked in.
