It’s a great honour when a band like Franz Ferdinand asks an underground producer to remix a song. When Röyksopp, Yello, Annie, Mylo and even Roxy Music call the guy as well to ask for a mix you can be quite sure that the producer is more than just one of many one hit wonders. And when this artist starts to record his second album people like Soulwax, The Rapture and Radio 4 want to sing on it, it`s not unlikely that there is something special going on. All this is happening to Swiss-born, now Berlin-based disco producer, DJ and painter Robi Insinna aka Headman.

You can easily call Robi one of the leading figures of the new disco movement. His first Headman album “It Rough” was released in 2003 on Gomma and set new standards in club circles. It was immediately nominated as “album of the month” in Jockey Slut Magazine and called one of the most important and innovative albums of the year by DJ’s such as Trevor Jackson, Ivan Smagghe and Hell.

Since then he has built up a worldwide reputation as a remixer, producer and DJ – regularly playing “hot” clubs like Bugged Out or Optimo in the UK as well as Tribeca in New York and FUN in Berlin. Last year he has even been invited to play at the MTV Music Awards aftershow party in Lisboa and the famous Colette Shop parties in Paris. He is also travelling all over Europe with Soulwax as their Tour DJ.

As well as releasing as Headman he’s also running his own label called Relish.

Headman’s new album “On” is being released on March 10, 2006 on Gomma.
