Boytronic - The Robot Treatment LP

After a ten year hiatus, original Boytronic vocalist and songwriter Holger Wobker (Kamerata/Beachead), returns with former Boytronic frontman James Knights (Scarlet Soho/KNIGHT$) to release the brand new album . No one can dispute Boytronic has had a colourful and at times turbulent history, after Holger Wobker and Peter Sawatzki honed their musical craft at sex shows in Hamburg's red light district on the Reeperbahn.. With the band shrouded in mystery, by the late 80s their management had claimed ownership of their name and with a new line-up they continued on without Holger. Holger returned briefly for the Autotunes album in 2002, playing several live shows alongside the new band. But it was never quite the same Boytronic that captured the hearts and minds of fans all over the world. Fast forward to 2016, and James was invited by the band to act as frontman. Despite critically acclaimed performances surrounding the release of the Jewel album in 2017, differences of opinion over the musical direction of the band saw James leave the line-up in January 2018. Holger and James decided to meet in Berlin. They soon realised they had far more in common musically than they'd realised. A love for Hi NRG, Italo Disco, Divine, The Flirts, even Fleetwood Mac to name a few. Both were eager to bring back the original sound of Boytronic and knew 2019 was the right time. They set to work on what would become The Robot Treatment. Sending files back and forth between Germany and the UK the record soon took shape.
