antoine harispurus was raised by a robot called v.i.c.t.o.r. the robot took care of little antoine and early on he gave him music lessons and also the right equipment, for example a roland 808. robotic, mechanical precision became significant for antoines music and soon he left the safety of his mothers toy store for the huge european club scene under his new pseudonym golden bug.
this year he releases two songs as a 7 inch vinyl and in digital format on hoga nord rekords. the a-side, “viaje a tenderloin” sounds like the inside of an east german military liaison in 1975 where the tabulating machines haven’t had service since the raise of the berlin wall. on the b-side “hitodoma”, guest vocalist jessica ho plays with her voice in a bubbly way above golden bugs characteristic metallic, world music influenced sounds and beats. the music would fit perfectly in a vast alien mountain landscape.
in conclusion, the music on this 7 inch is the sound of human and robot in close symbiosis - golden bug is music by robot and human for robot and human.
the number of bad luck is the number of good luck in our world. antoine harispuru aka golden bug is back on lddlm with what has been a constant night hit for ivan smagghe since he magically received it. we are very happy to share it with you. progress feat. diego holdez kind of defies categorisation, and blows the walls of the classic slow downed clocks of golden bug. we d describe it as vocal funk? you may describe it the way you want. ask your girlfriend, she seems to love it. on remix duty, miami come berlin bad boy danny daze a rest from the big room for a pounding omnidisc version that will slowly burns through any leather jacket, very corrosive stuff. physical disco is classic golden bug, a demented industrial pinball machine of some kind. whilst supernova is that exact machine played by a retro-futurist vocoder robot. think aux 88 played at 33rpm and you ll be as close as you can.
his first solo ep, barbies back, out on gomma, is a huge success for the ghetto-disco wizkid and everyone starts falling in love for his sound: his first album, hot robot, is released in 2008 and erol alkan, jori hulkonnen, prinstomas, digitalism, shitrobot play his tracks all around the world. thought, recorded and produced in his studio in gracia, barcelona, v.i.c.t.o.r features a number of collaborations: julienne dessagne (sachienne), yan wagner, fabrizio mammarella, moscoman, guillaume atlan, in fields, pajaro sunrise
an ep of golden bug on lddlm has been a long-time coming. paths crosses, encounters, similitudes. but it took all of us time to agree on how golden bug should fit into our mortal ethics of fragmentation: we don t want to sound like anybody else, each track on the ep should all sound different. the french but barcelona based producer played our game, anticipating his future and very diverse album with a spook yet catchy 12inch. wild boys was an instant ear-catcher, some proto funk with a very strong vocal by yan wagner that made it sound like duran duran on speedball. it was hard to take it to another level but lord tusk, one of our favourite producers of the emerging -no genre london scene beefs it up, kraftwerk way. its moody as we all are. ik voel je shows the more experimental spaced out side of golden bug, we d call it space rock if we had to. do not neglect l-horloge, it s slow, dark, menacing but it s a real time bomb if tuned correctly.
the man behind golden bug was partly educated by victor, a japanese robot from osaka. victor was invented by komba, an old japanese man who wanted a child. he created victor. when the old man died he sent victor around the world telling him to find a new home. after a big odyssey victor finally arrived at legendary la maison du robot in paris. the shop was owned by antoines mother who was the first one to import japanese toys to europe in the 70ies.so victor came to antoines family and decided to stay for a while. and as antoines mother was very busy with the other toys - victor practically was the one to teach antoine how to eat, how to speak and how to dance...

before coming back in september for a new year of new releases, lddlm gives you their current mood and state of affairs in the form of a sampler 12inch grieve not, but try again. luke abbot s mix of easters champagne has been in our drawers since the very early days of the label but still shines as new. no dust gathered. easters synth pop is turned into a slow, yet nor chugging, futuristic r n b number. this is our conception of sunrise music. tom of england grasps the metallic fury of mutado pintado s classic lazy boy and chops it in a grinder. decomposition / re-composition with of high industrial standard. a scene from a future, a from-a-lost-tape edit by our underbuy manfredas has been one of our biggest club tracks for the last year. check his recent boiler room ending to know how warped yet strangely hit-like it is. finally, cowboy rhythmbox decided of their own accord to do a club edit of golden bugs physical disco. we liked it, we release it. simple and effective. jugular attack
