Right from the start I was hooked, reminding me of my 20’s when I was immersed in Synth-pop. This catchy tune gets stuck in my head but in a good way! Check it out below.
ROBOTIKUS is an Australian electronic duo consisting of Adam Kleist and Scott Targett.
Their music is influenced by the Disco, Funk, and House pioneers of the 1970’s & 80’s. It’s a fresh blend of synth-pop, fused with contagious vocal hooks, classic drum tones, and groovy guitar.
The pair met in Melbourne following the conclusion of Targett’s previous band and soon found themselves collaborating on tracks conceived by Targett while living in Berlin the previous year.
Targett, a seasoned musician, has been professionally playing most his life. In 2007, his Melbourne-band, Dukes of Windsor, signed to Island/Universal records. They kept a persistent touring/recording schedule, the ‘Dukes’ made their way to the top of the Australian ARIA charts, remaining in the top 50 for 20 consecutive weeks and became the ARIA #1 club song of 2007.
Now based in Hobart, Tasmania, Scott’s focus has turned to ROBOTIKUS, of which he is responsible for a majority of the duo’s production, and also performs weekly on the local scene.
