Following the jazz-oriented previous releases, with Volume 6 Robotnick goes back to the darker atmospheres he's more familiar with. TB303, synth-arpeggios and modal chord pads are all back to the foreground.
‘This Is No Country For Heroes’ (122 bpm) is not really a dance track but rather a soundtrack. The country referred to in the title is obviously Italy, but it may apply to many other countries as well.
