„My body, mouth and mind are never weary of these deeds…“

If you compare the Astroboter debut album to a feature film, then this record can be seen as the outtakes and bonus material which enhances the prolific and vast history of the meta-mystic power shaped like a robot. The MPC implemented in his belly functions as a sketchbook, scribbling sonic notes about the numerous deeds he committed through his infinite existence.

These short-stories work like traditional Sutras, where minimal sample-syllables meet continuous beats without flaw. Traced back to the origins of Instrumental Hip Hop and Breakbeats, the samples derive from Psychedelic & Progressive Rock, Classic Music, to Krautrock and indigenous cultures. In opposite to the full length album, no live instruments were documented on this record. Planned as an ongoing series in the future, Beat Sutras Vol. I reflects the sample-driven aspect of Astroboter’s musical merits.

The digital version of this collection will be released for free over the course of 6 weeks, with two songs airing each week like a TV Show. The gratis version is accompanied by a Limited Tape Edition, handmade by the artists and confined to 40 pieces worldwide. Each cassette comes with an unique Sutra from the Pali Canon, creating a closer experience for the listener. Beat Sutras Vol. I starts on November 4th 2012 on Astroboter’s imprint “Psychedelic Dungeon Records”.
