Robocop, the classic, is getting remade and re-released next month. It’s directed by José Padilha with Gary Oldman, Samuel L Jackson and Michael Keaton. But remember the original that predicted a future in which the justice system was run by corporations and Detroit was nearing collapse? So to jog your memory I spliced it down and jumbled it up into a robostep video noise track. You now have 15 seconds to click like.
EM’s latest long form mixtape is titled Input/Output. It’s a 17 minute journey through extreme cut and pasting and “eclectic” musical styles. Tune Yards and Annie Lennox jam it out with MGMT and Bon Iver and Grimes revamp the 80s with Diddy. Like most EM mixtapes the samples aren’t just music but movies, tv shows and modern media moments all spliced up and remixed. Where else will you see ONYX and Aha join forces?
