Juxta - I Fear The Robots (Dodgy Machinery Remix)
Since I’d previously done a few robotic type tracks, I decided to remix Juxta’s track ‘I Fear The Robots’…although technically this track isn’t about actual robots.
I kept many of the original elements of the track, including the vocals and a majority of the guitar parts. Layering up the dry version of the vocal with the wet version.
The guitar parts mainly follow the progression of the original stem, but this was trance gated in a fair few places to try to make it sound a bit more mechanical.
For this mix I had come up with two different basslines, one a that was amped up through an Orange AD200, the other was a rezzy more electronic bassline, after deliberating over which one I liked best, I just decided to layer the two together and use some modulation in various sections of the arrangement.
Drums in this were created from electronic and mechanical robotic sounding samples.

More about Skaarl:
All types of music appeal to me, particularly the more relaxed genres - chillout, ambient, downtempo, trip hop, jazz, latin, IDM, etc. Usually I will create downtempo electronic tracks, although I go through phases where it gets a bit more upbeat, just whatever I happen to be feeling at the time.

Member of the EMA collective, Blocktronika, and have been part the ACR community for several years.
“Skaarl is not only a great artist but very supportive of others on the platform, top bloke” - The Turtle Project
“Skaarl is a Cool Cat and a great musician. He pulls great heavy driving music out of his pocket and slaps you. Soft at 1st. His track ‘I Fear The Robots’ with Juxta says it all.” - wav-Dr.
“Skaarl has affectionately acquired various nicknames in the first couple of months in EMA but the main ones we refer to him as are “Trouser Man”, “Señor Trouser Man” and “Don Skaarlioni”! We’re surprised he doesn’t mention this in his bio below but we’ll leave it up to the man himself to tell you more!” - EMA
