Alexander Robotnick returns with the fifth volume of his “Music For An Imaginary Club” series. After re-visiting some jazz standards in Volume 4, Robotnick further introduces the jazz mood into electronic music with three funky-oriented tracks.
The first is ‘Freaker’ (120 bpm) where out of an electro-funky base comes synthetic horns and a romantic theme, something Robotnick unfortunately can’t do without.
The next track, ‘Love Machine’ (120 bpm), is derived from a MIDI file Robotnick found on a website entirely dedicated to jazz transcriptions. He looked for its composer and couldn't find him, but was so in love with that material, he drew inspiration from it to create a funky track played by an imaginary electronic band.
Finally ‘Media House’ (124 bpm) is a very rhythmic track echoing modal jazz with a horn riff that cyclically breaks in like a wave of energy. During the whole production, Robotnick was oddly haunted by a fantasy: a guy with a glass in his hand dancing along to that horn riff, heading to the dancefloor from the bar… The dancefloor in his imaginary club of course.
