Pirate Robot Midget It’s My Beat Now! [EP]

Pirate Robot Midget: It's My Beat Now!Electro rock is fun and innovative
  and, with a backbeat of hip-hop,
  Pirate Robot Midget make sure you’re
  never going to forget about them...”


YOU HAVEN'T HEARD IT ALL until you've heard Pirate Robot Midget and the band's own creative brand of electro rock that is sending shockwaves around the UK. Shockwaves that will shake you to your boots.

An Italian-French electro rock outfit based in the heart of trendy Amsterdam, Pirate Robot Midget is the latest signing to hotly-tipped new label Hell Yeah Recordings. Hell, yeah!

No lily-livered gang of music hijackers these. Pirate Robot Midget's sounds are personally mastered to keep you on the dance floor with every style of robotics you can muster — and then some. Unusual and crazy beats, to say the least!

Spoon fed, we are told, on a steady diet of distorted basslines and twisted punk rock riffs, the boys' distinctive sound is the result of hard work and creative input. Drawing inspiration from the city, the lifestyle, the chaos everywhere from cramped studios to sweaty clubs, PRM's hi-octane live sets are rough, sweaty and noisy… like, says the publicity machine, a garbage disintegrator singing northern soul! Or even a military tank shedding its tracks!

The music in Pirate Robot Midget's soul must be full of delightful noises that resonate through the walls and back again. Crash landing into club sets around Europe, PRM made their mark with a killer — an astonishing remix of Nine Inch Nails' My Violent Heart — and have never looked back.

Already a firm favourite among the tastemaker bloggers and the online set, the hardest working men in dance music continue to churn out club banger after banger. Earning accolades on the remixing front, PRM continues to work with the trendsetters of the indie-dance crossover scene.

It's My Beat Now! features Stateside rapper Grand Agent on vocals for a genre-defying hip-noise tune about sampling, hits and B Boy courts. On the flipside, Sacrum and So Undead are a testament to why PRM's sound is on demand worldwide: solid rocking kick-ass beats.

This package comes with two tasty remixes of It's My beat Now!, one from electro-minimal wonder Riva Starr (Dirtybird, Frontroom Kindisch) who delivers a jacking, freaky version for the fidget house massive, and man of the moment Dyno (Mantra Vibes) who adds his stomping techno flavour against Grand Agent vocals: this is a sick-beat.

Hotly-tipped Italian contemporary artiste and all round trendsetter, Neverending (also known as The Boghe) lends his cutting-edge, futuristic portraits to PRM's cover art. Based in Amsterdam, Neverdending (real name, Rocco) is one half of the creative duo Two Things.

With highly anticipated forthcoming PRM remixes for Teenage Bad Girl, Baster Beez and Ninfa, Hell Yeah Recordings is proud to introduce this limited EP from one of the most hyped bands around.

Each track has its own attraction, with magnificent creations that crash, bang and wallop into your music life — Pirate Robot Midget is coming on board so grab hold of the handrails. You're in for the ride of your life.

It's My Beat Now! was released in the UK as a limited EP on 15 September, 2008.
