House and techno producer Sacha Robotti has nearly two decades of experience putting out music on tastemaking labels like Dirtybird, Octopus Records and This Ain't Bristol. Now, the German-born, Los Angles-based artist is flexing his artistic freedom with the launch of his new label, Slothacid.
The imprint will serve as a distribution method exclusively for Robotti's own music, with the first release, the aptly named four-track EP Welcome to Slothacid out on Aug. 30. The EP's first single "Tail of a Siren" -- a tech house thrillride through deep space -- is premiering exclusively on Billboard Dance, below.
"It’s a love song from the future with weird distorted vocals that I wrote and sang, on eternal unreciprocated love, I guess, and with a German accent [laughs]," Robotti tells Billboard Dance. "I want to channel emotion into my music to affect people viscerally, if possible."
