Bot is of the future. Half man, half-machine; fully Italian. Exiled in West London, locked in the studio since departing legendary duo Crookers, Bot (his creators named him Andrea Fratangelo) has disassembled any expectations and rebuilt his sound for 2018.
Since forging his new solo path, Bot has prepared half a dozen releases to deliver throughout 2013. The first, "Vamos / Go Down" EP was hastily snatched by Steve Aoki's Dim Mak label and released in March. His 2nd release, 'Indastria 2028' followed in May on his own label Main Course (with partners Astronomar & Neoteric). Next up are 2 smashers for Blood Music (Trails/One Hour) which will see the light in July and have since debuted in Fake Blood's Fabric Live 69 compilation. To round out the year, Bot joins the crew at Southern Fried once again, to drop the "Friday Pulse" EP and remixes, featuring the legendary Robert Owens. On top of that, more music from Bot and friends is being prepared for Main Course, and he's stayed busy remixing the likes of Diplo & Wiley. One thing is for certain; there are no plans to slow down!
Futuristic techno and unorthodox club rhythms are welded with hip hop influences, and a nod to the sounds and sprit of classic house. What we have here folks, is the new tomorrow.

Astronomar has been stirring up and building alliances in the dance music community since he arrived in Seattle by way of Alaska in 2008. Newly relocated to Los Angeles in 2013, he's seen by far his busiest year on the road, and in the studio, infiltrating the playlists of most every A-List DJ with ears. Thereʼs an intangible uniqueness to everything he does; a strong hip-hop influence permeates his productions, based on his earlier roots in hip hop & turntablism. Since his first release "Had To Move On" (released via Discobelle) in 2011, he has released on Mad Decent/Jeffreeʼs, 2 EPs with Sinden on Boys Noize' BNR Records, and Top Billinʼ - plus countless other remixes for Fools Gold, Ministry of Sound and Owsla. The biggest names, from Diplo, to Skrillex, to A-Trak have supported his tracks by featuring them on their own mixes & radio shows, and playing them out nightly, around the world. Diplo and DJ Fresh tapped Astronomar to remix their international hit 'Earthquake'. Upcoming releases include the Mutant Club EP (Main Course), a collabo with CRNKN on Fools Gold, and the 2nd EP with Sinden.
His remix of Wax Motif & Neoteric's 'Go Deep' became a set staple for Skrillex & Boys Noize's live show, and echoed the stages of Coachella, Ultra Music Festival and was included on Skrillex's 2013 Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1. He joined Diplo in Las Vegas, as the only special guest invited to played his residency at the world-famous club XS, plus saw prime slot times at both EDC Las Vegas and Paradiso Festivals in 2013. This year also saw him join forces with Neoteric & Bot on their own boutique label, Main Course, which has been pegged as 'the' label to watch for diverse, cutting edge releases. Tour wise, a national Main Course tour is set for Summer 2014 followed by dates with Sinden, and then a return to Europe, Australia and Asia to round out the year. While we wait for the rest of the world to catch on, Astronomar is a name to look out for in the new US club scene. This is that next shit.
