Robots, mecha, androids, simulacra, I love them and, to commemorate the release on the first Transformers film in the summer of 2007 I put together a themed mix called ‘Remember the Future’ with the emphasis on the machine envisaged in the 50′s, 60′ and 70′s when space travel was still a new wonder of the world. The intro was Transformer themed and I was doing a gig with Hexstatic a few months later for the release of their album ‘When Robots Go Bad’ so I decided to make up some artwork to go with it so that I could sell some at the gig. The outer cover was a folding version of the Autobot logo (I wanted to do a Decepticon but it didn’t lend it’s self as well to the task in hand). This held the disc inside, each one of which was printed with a different image of a robot cribbed from an online gallery of bots made from found objects.
