Wednesday 23rd September TOY TOY presents
My Favorite Robot (Voytek) at And
Supported by G-Force, Zolabuddé, Sound Sensible & Andi Dill
MFR’s Voytek will be performing this exclusive Jozi, SA gig at a special MID-WEEK TOYTOY and the next day is a public holiday!
The MFR vision is simple. Ignore the norm and broaden the definition of electronic music in order to deliver it to as many music lovers as possible.
My Favorite Robot is the trio of Jared Simms, James Teej, and Voytek Korab 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, Ivan Smagghe, Kenny Glasgow, Fairmont, Christian Prommer, 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 and 2013 saw the most complete project from The Robots to date with their new full length album ‘Atomic Age’ released on No.19 Music last September , which MFR are now touring as a Live show. Already established as a force to be reckoned with, it seems it is now time for the Robots to take on the world…..
