I AM ROBOT - Ambush Dem EP

September 28, 2015 -

When not working with his cofounder on their collective/label Robot Records, Long Beach local Sam Casucci is busy making beats of his own under his aptly named project I AM ROBOT. This month will see the release of his first original production since dropping a seven-track extended play back in March. However, we did see an IAR remix drop in May of “Want U Bad” by Robot Records artist rrotik, who will now be returning the favor. I AM ROBOT’s new track “Ambush ‘Dem” will be premiering on Nest HQ tomorrow along with rrotik’s remix, as well as a remix by artist Ray Volpe.

Upon listening to I AM ROBOT’s new release, it seems the track has set out to do exactly as it states – ambush the listener with a flurry of hybrid sound and midtempo grooves. The introductory melody puts one in the setting of a middle eastern bazaar, coaxing the listener into drawing a little closer before unleashing the assault. The drop’s dirty bass line ostinatos work together with heavy 808s to surely make you want to “put your hands up.”

Rrotik’s remix takes a notably different approach from IAR’s original arrangement. With a four-to-the-floor beat, the remix hangs its BPM in the 120s. The song’s prominent bass line delivers a surefire head-bobbing groove, certain to keep you moving until the last second.

Though Ray Volpe coincidentally stayed in the same BPM range as his fellow remixer, it seems he sought to provide a remix on the opposite end of the groove spectrum. Staying true to the 808 heavy nature of the original, Volpe delivers a go-hard trap tune that answers any questions you might have about the quality of the track - “it’s fucking lit as fuck.”
