*WARNING - Long announcement sappy post thing incoming*
Alright. So. Guess I'll just get right into it. After spending a lot of time deliberating on the subject, I've decided to end the I AM ROBOT project.
Ultimately, my passion for the project itself has diminished. Writing for I AM ROBOT started to become very forced, as I was putting immense pressure on myself to achieve certain goals. I ended up getting a terrific job in the music industry, and the necessity to make I A...M ROBOT a commercial success faded. With this freedom, I've been able to take a small sabbatical from writing music. I've realized my drive to continue I AM ROBOT wasn't born from a place of joy and expression as it was in the past. So... the decision became clear. Why continue? Don't get me wrong, this project has been one of the greatest experiences and growing opportunities of my life. I've met so many incredible people, and deeply fell in love with electronic music. But I'm ready for something new.
I want to express my sincerest gratitude to those of you who have loved and supported this project. It's been a little over four years since I released "I Am The Robot" on HEAVY ARTILLERY RECORDINGS and this little blog (at the time) EDM.com posted it. Since then, you weirdos have developed into this small, awesome, dedicated, underground... dare I say "fan-base"? You've all been incredibly loving, inspiring, and receptive of my often-times eclectic music. To know I've brought a smile to even just one of your faces with my music is incredibly humbling.
Now, this does not mean I am done producing, or "retiring" so to speak. I've been writing and playing music since I was four years old, I doubt I'll ever stop. I have no idea what the new alias will be, or the kind of music it will be - but I can guarantee you that it will be fun, and something I am truly proud of.
Thanks again, robots. It's been a fucking blast.
P.S. I want to give an extra shout out and thank you to my parents, brothers, Shannon Shortee Bruno, Bobby Faust Bruno, Clark Robinson, Eduardo Nascimento, Jake Walters, PO fam (you know who you are), Aaron Fulmer, Kyle Robert, and Kevin Dresel. Thank you all for your input, investment, and the sacrifices you made to help me chase my dream.
Robots, if you haven't caught my latest remix yet, go check it out! We've garnered support from Nest HQ, EDM, wobblecraft, Daily Beat, Headytunes.co, the list goes on and on. Oh and did I mention the release comes with a remix from Mr. Twine as well? Don't sleep on this one! Link in the comments!
Getting shouted out by Nest HQ is never a bad way to start the day.
We here at Robot Records are very proud to bring you our second family member's debut EP. This guy is poised to take over the scene. His music and vision are ph...enominal, and we can't wait to share this one with you on May 4th.
