Robotic Pirate Monkey
with Alpha Data and Freddy Todd
Robotic Pirate Monkey is the party pillaging electronic trio that fuses eclectic samples from the past with cutting edge sound design to create something totally fresh, and fun to get down to. The group consists of Andrew Hathaway, Matt Berryhill, and Matt Flesher. Brought together by a love for skiing, RPM quickly found their niche in the dense Colorado music scene. RPM has toured nationally and shared the stage with the likes of Zeds Dead, Paper Diamond, Big Gigantic, Crystal Castles, Mstrkrft, Gramatik, Araab Muzik, ill.Gates, Conspirator, Savoy, Krewella and many more.
Words will inevitably fail to properly describe Freddy Todd. Genre-busting could be an understatement. You can't pin him down with lexicon like lazer-bass and glitch-funk; these phrases fall way short of capturing the expressiveness, fearlessness, and space-traveling qualities of his music. Hearing his music is akin to being abducted by an extra-terrestrial cruise liner where everyone is tripping on space acid. And if you are lucky enough to witness him produce, you'll see that he fittingly looks just like the captain of said space cruiser, both hands intently gripping his electronics like the instrument panel on the flight deck. Based out of Detroit, Freddy Todd is truly a master of his craft not only in the studio but on stages across the globe. Without any pre-recorded sets, Freddy has the skills and the audacity to perform on the fly mixes of 100% original material tailored to his specific audience, mood, and venue each night, be it a theater in northern California, a club in the back alleys of Detroit, or an outdoor festival in the bush off the eastern coast of Australia (occasionally on special nights with his live drummer, ill.so.naj). His earth shattering, meticulously programmed beats and rhythms, his lazer crunk, funky psychedelic bass and sound design, and his brain tingling, intelligently soul-soaked synths, melodies, and field-recorded samples are sure to shake your consciousness as they blast through airwaves out of top notch sound systems across the universe.
Alpha Data’s debut release, Nefertiti (released on GruntWorthy Music), hit #1 on the Beatport Glitch Hop chart, and #50 on the Beatport All Genres chart. This is not a small feat considering his touring to that point was limited to shows played in the Midwest. A follow-up release, Nefertiti Remixes, was released in January with remixes of the chart-topping “Nefertiti” by an all-star cast of producers (fellow #1 Beatport artist Samples, Unlimited Gravity, Sovereign Sect, J.me.j, and Burn Brighter). With over 1000 followers on Soundcloud and a couple dozen tracks released via Soundcloud, glitch hop fans across the nation have started to catch on. His signature sound, combining high-intensity bass with catchy, melodic hooks, has built him a steady and loyal following in the rapidly emerging EDM scene. Having recently released multiple remixes of well-known pop culture hits, Alpha Data doesn't seem to be slowing down at all.
