OUR FAVORITE ROBOT
My Favorite Robot is the trio of James Teej, Jared Simms and Voytek Korab, three Canadian DJs/producers who in the space of a few short years have become a central part of the global electronic music scene.
Simms & Korab originally formed the My Favorite Robot act in Montreal back in 2002 and the label in 2008, shortly after Jared‚Äôs move to Toronto from Montreal. At the same time, the duo hooked up with the No19 Music crew and James Teej and a new chapter in Canadian music history was born. Teej, who was already recording for Rekids and other influential imprints, soon became involved in the running of the My Favorite Robot label and a musical affinity between himself and Simms & Korab lead to the duo becoming a trio.
Whilst their good friends at No.19 went on to form the massively successful Art Department, the boys at MFR worked alongside them building their own label into a global beacon for quality electronic music. My Favorite Robot Records has received huge critical acclaim and has released music from the likes of Kenny Glasgow, Sasse, Chloe, Michael J Collins, Jonny White, Jori Hulkkonen, Phonogenic, The Model, Murphy Jax & Emerson Todd to name but a few.
2011 has seen My Favorite Robot releasing on Crosstown Rebels & Visionquest, remixing for Jori Hulkonnen‚Äôs Processory project on Sugarcane Recordings, and laying the groundwork for a series of label driven events around the world. The boys are also hard at work recording the much anticipated follow up to their 2009 debut album ‚ÄòWe Come in Pieces‚Äô.
Already established as a force to be reckoned with it seems it is now time for the Robots to take on the world!
