2007 has been a busy year for Robi Insinna aka Headman. With remixes for Chromeo, Punks Jump Up, The Gossip, Zombie Nation, Poney Poney and Roxy Music, the rise of his own imprint Relish Recordings and his busy DJing schedule all over the world from London to Sydney, who could have thought that he would find the time to produce a new album in between? But since Robi is always creative and full of new ideas, he returned to his keyboards to record his electrifying third album entitled “Catch Me” for Germany’s No.1 disco label Gomma Records.

After 7 years of intensive producing Headman hardly needs any introduction. Always ahead of his time Robi is at the origin of the punk-funk/rave disco movement with his mates of DFA and Playgroup a few years ago, when releasing his first album “It Rough” on Gomma Records. After the success of his second album “On” (2006) that featured a who’s who of music personalities such as Stephen Dewaele of Soulwax and Matt Safer of The Rapture, Robi wanted to reach the next level and produce an album showing his maturity in writing and composing.

Since spending a lot of time in Berlin, Robi knew exactly what he wanted. He recorded and produced his album in his own studio and went to mix some of his tracks at Berlin’s legendary Hansa Studios, where David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Japan, or Iggy Pop recorded in the past.

Headman’s third album “Catch Me” shows new developments in the Headman sound. He fused his trademark punk style with new indie influences and composed 12 original tracks with a very nice post-punk, electro and dance flavour. “Catch Me” includes the two hit singles “Running Into Time” featuring ladies’ favourite new wave rapper Don Cash and “Catch Me If U Can” with the sweet voice of Tara who also sang on “It Rough” and “On & On” from his previous albums. Both of the singles got the props of great DJs such as Soulwax, Jerry Bouthier and Kissy Sell Out, and “Catch Me If U Can” already appeared on the “Kitsuné Boom Box” compilation.

The album also highlights the voice of Jeremy Kerr of legendary band A Certain Ratio on “Dreampieces” and of Anton Spivac on “Come On”, who also lent his voice to Headman’s “Moisture” from “On”. The whole album brings a new breath of life in the world of pop and dance music, breaking some barriers, mixing up indie vibes with an electro attitude and with a little bit of Bowie and Eno in it too.
