Directly from the Republic Nightclub Press Release:
Graduate Thursdays & Republic Nightclub present:
Trevor Risk, Matty C & Guests
Autoerotique stores electro, techno, house, Dutch house, Dutch-colonial house, rave, rock, rave-rock, indie-rock and even ska on speed dial and calls them up frequently. Their effortlessly protein, shape-shifting sound can careen wildly from project to project, so it’s not unexpected to hear them transform from Dutch house to, say, Norwegian black metal on the same record – thus, earning them the lazily au courant nick name “Autobots”.
Following the Gladiator EP, Autoerotique showed off the many colorful arrows in their musical quiver releasing remixes for Lykke Li, Shinichi Osawa, Chris Cornell & Timbaland, Diplo & Laidback Luke, Larry Tee, B. Rich, Disco Bisquits, Fischerspooner, Weezer, Benny Benassi, and Tiesto. Dim Mak just released the latest EP appropriately titled “Turn Up The Volume”.The group is back in studio—following a non-stop liver-punishing tour—and excitedly working on their next single and first full length LP.
