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.  A highly dramatic theme breaks into a dark and unusual Samba rhythm symbolizing the light-minded and superficial way leaders - not only political - are first exalted and then violently thwarted in this country.

‘India’ (120 bpm), despite its title, does not contain any traditional Indian music - which indeed Robotnick knows quite well - but is inspired by urban India, chaotic and “globalized”, a country of innumerable contrasts.

‘Tubuntu’ (120 bpm), whose title is probably derived from the famous open-source O.S. is a typical track in Robotnick’s style that starts in a tech-house mood and turns “progressive” at the end for those who feel like listening till the end…
