‘Is There No End’, from Shit Robot’s newest album is a song that is narrated by Jayson Green ( singer of piunk bands Orchid and Panthers). in a stream-of-consciousness at the club who rambles to the party, isn’t let back into the club, leaves his jacket inside and drifts off into the ether.

New Jackson’s remix of the track, to be released alongside a remix by Khotin this Friday, takes a different tack.

His trademark waspy vocoder replaces the excited mumblings and the rhythm goes deeper, more of a comedown than a come-on lad.

Pre-order the remixes on digitally through Bandcamp. Out Friday.

Listen to New Jackson’s 3 hour All-City mix

Shit Robot’s new album features Hot Chip, New Jackson, Nancy Whang & Juan Maclean

I’ve made an Electric Picnic DJ Mix every year since 2008. It’s always been a blast to make and a highlight of the site for me personally. 2016’s mix features 22 artists on the Electric Picnic lineup over 20 songs in just under 55 minutes.

It’s for bumping for your festival prep for the next week or in the car on the way down to Stradbally. Last year’s mix.

I’m DJing at the Red Bull Tropical Garden at EP on Saturday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Marcus Lambkin aka Shit Robot will release his third DFA Records album What Follows on May 6th this year.

Guests include Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, David Kitt’s New Jackson, Jay Green (of American punk bands Orchid and Panthers) along with regular collaborators Nancy Whang, Museum of Love (Pat Mahoney and Dennis McNany) & Juan Maclean.

Now based in Stuttgart, the Dubliner’s release is a fully-analogue centric album, with Lambkin saying he moved away from the computer in favour of a more tactile approach.

“This is the first time that I actually sat down and said, ‘I’m going to make an album now and I’m going to finish it by a specific date and time.’ I wanted to make a record that was more cohesive, that sounded like it all came from the one session. I wanted it to reflect my DJing style a bit more, less pop, less disco, more machines. There’s no live bass and barring a few hi-hats, there’s no live drums.

Hear ‘End Of The Trail’ featuring Alexis Taylor as broadcast by Zane Lowe on Beats.

Here is the original non-album version of OB-8:

Shit Robot – What Follows Tracklist:

1 In Love
2 What Follows
3 Ten Miles High
4 Lose Control
5 End Of The Trail
6 Phase Out
7 Wir Warten
8 Is There No End
9 OB-8 (Winter Mix)
