This week sees the release of From The Cradle To The Rave, the debut album on DFA Records by Shit Robot. To celebrate, he’s recorded an exclusive mix for FACT.
The album has been a long time coming – it’s four years since the first Shit Robot single release, the mighty ‘Wrong Galaxy’/’Triumph’ – but the wait has been worth it. The star-studded, vocal-driven Cradle features contributions from James Murphy, Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, The Juan Maclean, Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem), House Of House’s Saheer Umar, Ian Svenonius (The Make Up) and Planningtorock as well as Lambkin himself.
A killer DJ, Lambkin’s mix showcases his love of heavy-duty house, techno and electro-disco, with anthems from Neal Howard and DJ Sprinkles rubbing up against lesser-known but equally righteous dancefloor fare from the likes of Hrdvision, Arto Mwambe and Basic Soul Unit. You can catch him doing his thing in the flesh at CAMP in London tomorrow, Friday 24 September, and again in November when he supports LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip on their UK arena tour. Full dates below.
