Listen: Stream The Debut 'God Robots' LP In Full
7 June 2013
Janaka Atugoda and Shridevi Keshavan came together to form the electronic duo, Gods Robots back in August 2009.
Under the alias ‘Janaka Selekta’, San Francisco-based Janaka had already by then established himself as a successful producer and DJ. Shridevi on the other hand, a Mumbaikar, had been performing alongside various DJ’s and producers, fusing her unique blend of western vocals and Carnatic-influenced melodies.
The name, ‘Gods Robots’, was inspired by the fact that most of their music was made over the Internet and this morning they released their self-titled debut album via that same medium.
In the words of the band, the tracks on 'Gods Robots', "share a message of positivity and optimism to get through life’s hurdles. All in all, the album is characterised by an undertone of collective power, unity and hope."
Gods Robots define a new sound which alongside a handful of other acts seamlessly blend English lyrics with a pop, reggae and bass music edge alongside classical Indian instrumentation and modern day production sensibilities. This is a follow up to their debut EP, Stormy Weather, which was released via Bit Torrent in late 2011.
