Now I suppose you want to know what it actually says !

"getting Tunes & Mixes from dj foundation can be hard" say his people.That's not surprising. He's from Mosul, Iraq. Really I thought it was a marketing gimmick but he's for real, and this big, dumb US Army & Van Halen sampling tune/mix/boot/cultural phenomenon is what i call an anthem"

Yea Big returns bolstered by a genuine rapper to etch more havoc on the senses. Leading track Heavy Catamaran has the smiling strut of the best comic-book-hero hip hop, and underneath it teems a vortex of insane musicality that captures all that’s great about Robinson as an artist. Anyone looking beyond the wearisome posturing of the mainstream for a pristine hip hop feast need search no more.
Neil Jones . Music Comh.com

Amp Camp Odd, quirky, and legal? I’m not too sure about the legality part of it, but it is pretty pimp... If amazing experimental hip-hop that involves phat damaged beats and guitar twangs is your bag, then Yea Big has it all.

Chicago Reader Robinson's work has attracted comparisons to laptronica artists like Prefuse 73 and Four Tet, but he says he's equally influenced by the hectic momentum and percussive rhythms of bluegrass. "I really want my stuff to be accepted as pop music," he says. "The whole thing is to make a pop record based out of experimental ideals."

Flagpole My friend Chris hates this and describes this as “what death sounds like,” so I won’t guarantee that any one person will swing on it. And yet, I wish everyone could hear it.

Kynd Music Like a cross between Napoleon Dynamite and Trey Anastasio, the prolific and talented experimental electronica artist Stefen Robinson ..utilizes rapid-fire house beats, hip-hop melodies, buzzing walls of ambient sounds, I don’t think I could ever get bored listening to him...

Mundane Sounds It basically sounds like Prefuse 73 gone retarded

Tangents (UK) rolls along like the greatest party of your life upside down

Tasty Fanzine (UK) Stefan Robinson is a true inventor, and has created here a true listening pleasure.

Treblezine What Andy Kaufman did for comedy, Yea Big has done with their new album The Wind That Blows the Robot's Arms.

Melbourne’s The Emergency return as a duo with two new disco cuts on New York’s Metal Postcard label. More delicate and spacey than anything on their excellent last album, this 7” finds Milo Kossowski and Morgan McWaters down the bloody vampire vibe in favour of a colder, more pneumatic kind of funk. It’s as fresh and breezy an effort as anything produced by the much hyped Italo-Disco school and, while all the signifiers of that movement are here – synthetic guitar, sequenced bass, arpeggiated synths – The Emergency never sound quotational or calculated like so many new club acts.

A-side ‘Spending Time’ is calypso robotics with handclaps and rubbery bass throbs. Shakers and electronics are distanced by reverb, and probing lyrics loop like a half-remembered thought; ‘Spend some cash / Waste some time / Life is a string of desires’. ‘Switch Me’ on the flip is a replicant love song with laserbeam synths, cowbells, obsession-fuelled vocals and an exploding second half. Packaged in a black and silver sleeve designed by Milo, this single is a classy outing by one our most futuristic sounding groups.


Zan Rowe of Triple J Australia Says
...Melbourne two piece The Emergency have gone halfway around the world and back again to deliver their new single. The band have hooked up with a label based in New York, who are incidentally set to release new stuff from Dsico soon too (remember him?).
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway, their new single is promising, but it's remix is even hotter. Heavy, grinding beats that travel for a good five minutes and keep you moving. And it comes from a fella from Melbourne too, Harris Robotis, proving that local electro is in a very healthy spot of late.

....More uber cool stereo waresfrom the New York based imprint responsible for those rather essential recent releases by Swoop Swoop and Sunny and Shia. Spending time' opens up a superbly crafted set of back to the old school early 80's club groove. An edgy almost monochrome montage of Spartan dub-tronics and detached white funk ... sounds to these ears like an early career Cabaret Voltaire in a head on mindtrip with the Shamen
'Switch me' is more extrovert in texture, minimalist retro groove shot through with an ice coldglacial fashion house cool that sounds like its been refined in late 70's Sheffield and hallmarked via a Manchester scene of the same era - well tasty if you ask me.
The Sunday Experience (UK)

Singer Milo has an attractive monotone residing somewhere between Bernard Sumner and a mellow Joe Strummer, which suits the inverted pop-psychology culminating in 'Spending Time's "Life is a string of desires" lyrics, and the self-deprecating/ironic, "Switch me for you/who needs money when you've got looks?." ' ... This certainly has its charms.
Cyclic Defrost (Australia)

Scene Magazine: The Emergency's debut album is nothing short of brilliant. The Emergency are reminiscent of an upbeat Suicide or Cabaret Voltaire. ..a sign that this band are leaps and bounds ahead of their coke snorting, vintage synth collecting, fashion driven rivals in Australia.

Better Propaganda.com The Emergency is lo-fi high-voltage electro rock and roll
The SoundLounge.com The Spectrum Deadly is one of the best albums I’ve heard this year. These robots deserve your support.

Monster Children: The Spectrum Deadly is perfect electro pop.

Inpress: The Emergency make cold and controlled android music that, at its roots, is also simple electro pop. Magic.

The Brag Magazine: Are you the type of person who could enjoy listening to The Human League's Dare album through a heavily distorted transistor radio? It's not something that you'll ever listen to when you're coming down, but it's a whole lot of fun on the way up.

Vice Magazine: I looked at myself in the mirror and wondered if I knew how to feel anymore. I didn't know how to feel about not knowing how to feel. I put on The Emergency and decided not to take a stance. Their synth pop syncopation and distorted vocals would happen anyway, like the fall of the wall or their points of reference before them; Telex, Human League, Kraftwerk. I stared back at the mirror, shaking my head. "Oh Cindy, Cindy, Cindy. Don't hate them because they are beautiful."

Sandwich Club.FM His weightless sound reminded me of fellow well-dwelling contemporaries, Zach Rogue and Damien Jurado. Incorporating a gritty lo-fi 60s sound, his songs would have also slotted in nicely somewhere on The Forest Gump Soundtrack, maybe for that classic shot of Jenny out the bus window...

[AR] Is This Music Magazine If you like the concept of the modern singer-songwriters but are finding them all too clean and polished to be believable, then Streaky Jake may be right up your street. The entire record seems to be covered in a layer of murky grime that slightly mutes and muffles the tracks but doesn't hide the finger-picking styles or the grizzled vocal delivery. ... vocals reminiscent of The Soledad Brothers, whereas other tracks will be lapped up by fans of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.

Alternative Ulster.com The debut album from Streaky Jake aka Australian singer-songwriter Sean Gorman, is a self-recorded set of ultra-low-fi folk tunes. Loosely based around the journey through a relationship, the record’s basic production lends a gritty charm to the delicate finger-picking, occasional mouth-organ and simplistic percussion, while Gorman’s evocative voice draws humour, insight and pathos in spades from his quiet meditations on love, sin, death and regret. Close in both sound and spirit to Devendra Banhart, but minus the bouts of unnecessary wackiness.
