Inside the rectangular room of a club in the heart of Ireland, beanbags slouch across the floor polished smooth by the comings and goings of moviegoers. The basement below heaves while young pre-acid house ravers listen to music from the next century. Resident DJ Martin McCann expends an adrenaline-charged slap into the gut of the underground. As the sky overhead burns with lazer vapor trails, drugs swoop in and out, drawing the ravers swathed in euphoria to another dimension.dummy
Those were the days that Marcus Lambkin aka Shit Robot describes as his youth, "When I first went clubbing that was me gone forever" he says. Over the phone Lambkin is quick to laugh and has an obsession with detail, partly because those years were his time of self-discovery, as if his memory acts in concert tagging everything that meant something for him.
We Got A Love, the follow up album to 2010's From Cradle to the Rave, shows how the concept of Shit Robot best manifests itself - by rotating a lineup of impeccably talented collaborators that unspool bouts of energetic nostalgia for the long-gone '90s club era.
