My sister asked me to provide a soundtrack for my nephew Max’s “robot dance party” 6th birthday party. He’s a Kraftwerk fan, so I used kraftwerkiness as a theme. Some awkward edits to avoid cursing, and a few obvious crowd-pleasers for the adults, but I’ve had fun listening to it for the last few weeks.
I assumed a new identity for this mix: P Tron, a robot from space. That was probably the best part.
I’m told that the party consisted of listening to these jams and disassembling machinery including a broken DVD player and an old busted credit card machine from my mom’s library. And games and robot costumes. Sounds like a good time was had by all… wish I could have joined them.
