Growing up, Cord Labuhn was surrounded by musical inspiration. Whether from the golden age of HipHop that he loved so much, simply from his parents‘ record collection or the musical instruments that he found himself naturally able to master. It was from a young age that Cord’s fascination developed and turned to DJing and producing, as he taught himself everything from beatmaking and scratching to self releasing.
With his love of music deep and varied, Cord has always played, produced and written at the highest level and with collaborators spanning the genres.
The Berlin resident took the world by storm as ROBOSONIC with a string of popular releases that went into the crates of countless DJs worldwide and made it to top spots in the infamous Beatport charts (e.g. “Worst Love”, “The Edge” 2012, “La Fique” 2013, “House Music” 2015, “Rise” 2016). With releases on labels like Defected, Toolroom, Get Physical, Diynamic, Stil vor Talent, Yoshitoshi, Nervous, Crew Love, Kittball and Mother Recordings, Robosonic became an authentic figurehead for a sound dubbed “Golden Era House” (Juice Magazine). Not only because Cord was convincing real rap icons like Masta Ace, Jeru the Damaja and KRS-One to collaborate on house tracks, but also because Robosonic remixed true legends like Todd Terry, Arthur Baker, Kerri Chandler and Eddie Amador.
Robosonic‘s house & techno driven sets are internationally recognised and performances in 50+ countries (and counting) reflect the universal appeal of Cord‘s trademark sound – a sound that has had dancefloors pumping in recent times in Berlin, London, Ibiza, Dubai, Croatia, Ukraine, Switzerland, Stockholm, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Mexico, Australia, North and South America and elsewhere around the globe.
Having released arguably the track of 2018 with the Beatport No. 1 smash record “In Arms”, a collaboration with Ferreck Dawn and released via Defected, Robosonic was well and truly cemented as one of the go-to house DJs and producers of the moment. The release was so successful that it was updated with a full vocal version and titled “In My Arms“ featuring Nikki Ambers. It was supported heavily on radio and in the clubs and spawned high profile remixes from A-Trak, Quibko and Meduza. The whole package has garnered over 20 million streams combined so far and all versions have occupied the top of the charts.
Never one to rest on his laurels, summer 2019 saw a flurry of impactful new releases from Robosonic, including “Let Live” featuring Big Shug on Mother (and with a remix from Roger Sanchez pending), “Bootycall” featuring Iva on Brockwild (with remixes from Darrio D’Attis and Elliot Adamson) and “For the People” with EPMD on Armada Subjekt (with an Illyus & Barrientos remix to come).
Currently occupying the No. 6 House Producer position on Beatport and with the promise of more new music across the most respected labels in the scene, as well as a few surprises up his sleeve, the time is now for ROBOSONIC!
