MY FAVORITE ROBOT

My Favorite Robot is the trio of Jared Simms, James Teej, and Voytek Korab, three Canadian DJ/producers who in a space of a few short years have become a central part of the global electronic music scene.

Simms & Korab originally formed the My Favorite Robot act in Montreal back in 2002 and the label in 2008, shortly after Jared’s move to Toronto from Montreal. At the same time, the duo hooked up with the No19 Music crew and James Teej and a new chapter in Canadian music history was born. Teej, who was already recording for Rekids and other influential imprints, soon became involved in the My Favorite Robot label and a musical affinity between himself and Simms & Korab lead to the duo becoming a trio. Whilst their good friends at No.19 went on to form the massively successful Art Department, the boys at MFR worked alongside them building their own label into a global beacon for quality electronic music.

My Favorite Robot Records has received huge critical acclaim and has released music from the likes of Tim Paris, Jori Hulkkonen, Chloe, Michael J Collins, Kenny Glasgow, Fairmont, Phonogenic, Andrew Grant, & Tiger Stripes to name but a few.

2011 and 2012 saw MFR releases on Visionquest, Life & Death, Crosstown, and Sasha’s new Last Night On Earth label but it’s 2013 that will see the most complete project from The Robots to date with a new album slated for release on No.19 Music in the first half of the year . There are also plans for a series of label driven events around the globe. Already established as a force to be reckoned with, it seems it is now time for the Robots to take on the world…..

Date Nite's formation came to fruition when three like-minded spirits, Jason, Annie and Candy converged during an annual NASA Jet Propulsion conference on 'Robotic Exploration of the Solar System.' Realizing they had a shared love for science and beats, they assembled a musical collective dedicated to dynamic ass shaking. Calling San Francisco their home, they call upon their scifi-paganistic background for inspiration. Date Nite is a convergence of music, art and boot knocking.

MAKES ME MOVE aka dj M3 , is a respected and highly-experienced San Francisco Bay Area DJ, promoter and venue owner. He started out in 1994 with an infectious downtempo style of playing and over time honed it into a fluid, uptempo approach that is composed of house, techno and disco. This characteristically Bay Area method of DJing was carefully and thoughtfully developed by moving and delighting dance floors at his own Green Gorilla Lounge party, an event that he hosted at club and underground spaces all over San Francisco with Anthony Masnfield and starting the Disco Knights camp at BRC. In fact, Green Gorilla Lounge stands out as mythical in the city’s rich history of dance music clubs and parties.

Green Gorilla Lounge soon became well-known as an event where clubbers and music enthusiasts could hear legendary and soon-to-be legendary local and out-of-town talent. Many years of hosting and playing at these always exhuberant events allowed DJ M3 to become one of the San Francisco DJs who truly defined the sound of the city in the 1990s and into the next two decades. The parties also helped him develop his craft further and provided a platform from which he launched his Green Gorilla Lounge record label. His collaborations with Phil ‘Rene’ Collis of Bachelors of Science led to their further alliance as Sleight of Hands and to releases on Green Gorilla Lounge and other respected imprints such as, Smoke ’N’ Mirrors, Om, Sirenum, and Chillin’ Records. As Sleight of Hands they performed together at Outsidelands and Coachella in 2013 and at the San Francisco Treasure Island Music Festival in 2014.

DJ M3 moved onto other ambitious projects like the Tweakin'/Black Pancake record store and Triple Crown nightclub and has kept moving forward with his passion for music. He is now co-owner, along with Chris Smith of Om Records, of one of San Francisco’s best clubs, a central, downtown named Monarch and Great Northern in the design district. When he is not in the studio crafting future dance floor classics, he can be found rocking clubs, bars and underground parties all over the city with his signature DJ sound. With a colorful past behind him and a creative and future ahead there is no doubt that he will continue with his lifelong love of being behind the turntables and making music.
