"Budget-price collection showcasing 17 tracks of contemporary international electronic pop, made on machines by humans with heart and soul. Features many names from the growing UK electropop community, including client (signed to Andy Fletcher of Depeche Mode's Toast Hawaii label), Vic Twenty (first group on Mute Supremo Daniel Miller's credible Sexy Units label, guests on Erasure's recent tour), Riviera (currently recording with Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran), and the loyally followed Baxendale, while the cream of the U.S. movement is represented by laptop and star-in-the-making My Robot Friend. In addition to electronic stalwarts Komputer and White Town, Robopop introduces new acts from the UK, USA and Europe, many of whom are releasing material on dedicated labels which are springing up in a way not seen since the early-80s emergence of Mute and Some Bizarre."
