Live At Robert Johnson Vol. 6 comes straight from Arto Mwambé's mind and out of their mixing desk guts. Instead of grabbing a bunch of records and gluing them together (i.e. the classic DJ mix CD), the dynamic duo that is melody boy Phillip Lauer and rhythm doctor Christian Beißwenger decided to do exactly that which sets them apart from most of their peers: to play live (as in "live" and not as in pressing the space bar on a laptop). They simulated an hour in front of the club's audience and went with it. The classic Roland drum machine sound aesthetic walks hand-in-hand with prominent bass lines, playful synthesizer sounds, sweet melodies, joyful piano finger exercises and even a hidden stripe of acid here and there. All these uplifting elements take turns like good players in tennis doubles and are graced with that much-needed and often dearly-missed element of surprise, spontaneity and wit. In the same way as tracks like "Love Lifted" or "Greatest Love" flirted with the past, present and future of house, disco and leftfield sounds in their original form on Arto Mwambe's usual home base -- the revered and passionate vinyl-only label Brontosaurus -- the cleverly altered live versions bewitch their old and new audience once again. Plus, you will meet some new next best friends as well. Arto Mwambé prove that it is their own very special sound signature that makes you fall in love with them.
