Met ten years ago at an underground rave, ROB (the male half) and ZOOPSIE (the better half) formed an unique alliance built on a love of the disco sound and the pioneering electronic pop of visage, new order, the human league and Depeche Mode and the industrial sounds of front 242, belgian techno and new beat.
The result of these influences is a quick – fire hot mix of tough yet thoroughly girl – friendly techno funk which takes in HI – NRJ electro, dark pop, new wave, disco and Italo disco. All served with a lot of energy.
Whether targetting one genre (Italo, Oldschool / Nu Disco, Space Synth, Acid, New Wave, Electro, Chicago House …) or mixing it up with an array of Electronic Styles, ROB & ZOOPSIE‘sets always deliver on rocking, catchy, tunes and oodles of atmosphere.
As a twosome the duo based in a secret location somewhere in Belgium have also cut their teeth in the production game with their MODERNE and TEXTOLUX (along with CDRK) labels.
They have released FOUR killer EPS under the moniker THE REVOLVING EYES, several as electro – punk outfit TETRA PLOK, a dubbed out disko edit on DISKOKAINE’s lick the alphabet EP, have seen the HACKER HI – jacking their space models‘s driving people crazy track on his cd compilation (and N.0.W) alongside artists like FRONT 242, MODEL 500, THE EMPEROR MACHINE…, they also got a sampler EP on the highly recommended HI-PHEN label owned by MUGWUMP Aka Geoffroy, a split EP on Lycra records with the english duo HEARTBREAK, a track on CASCO’s electro hits compilation…
They also did some remixes and a bunch of disco edits here and around. Last releases on date: BEPPE LODA’s Egotrya remixed by The Revolving Eyes (People In The Sky 011) and GRUM – Sound Reaction (Heartbeats rec.)
Since then, the duo is touring regularly in the ever mutating disco hype and electro scene around Belgium, Europe and worldwide and appeared at highly regarded spots like Libertine Supersport (be), I Love Techno (be), Catclub (be), Los Ninos (be), Discoqueer (Paris), CBS Micro Parties (The Nnetherlands) , Bootleg Café ( Rotterdam) , IFM Parties (The Netherlands), Sameheads / Mirage (Berlin), Kleine Reise (Berlin), Nolla (Helsinki), Flexx (Vienna) , Disco Vendetta (Copenhagen) , Road To Rimini (Newcastle Upon Tyne/ Uk) , La Dolce Noir (London), Electronation (A´dam), Cocadisco (Be), Kiosk (Lille).....and much more…
Since this year they are residents at “Sameheads” HQ (www.sameheads.com) in Berlin and set the “Hors –Piste “ sessions every month.
Expect to find in their DJ set a mixture which crossed the shaky foot bridge of “Musical Education” and which get your body efficiently tickled and mash your brain.
