The Robots Have Infiltrated The World! – Music Mix Celebrating Robots From Film

The Robots Have Infiltrated The World! - Cybermen Doctor Who humanoids

Here’s a mix that I did last year which fits in quite nice with this here blog, it’s called “The Robots Have Infiltrated The World!” Featuring those wonderful metal creations and whether they are RobotsDeus Ex MachinaAutomatonArtificial Intelligence or Cybermen, Cyborg or Android , they will start out friendly and helpful and then one day rise up, destroy us all and take over our world……

I’ve always had a fascination with robots, right back to Robby The Robot in the Forbidden PlanetDaleks and Cybermen from Doctor WhoGort from The Day The Earth Stood Still to the cute ones like HueyLouie and Dewey from Running Silent and V.I.N.CENT and Bobby from The Black Hole. Too many to name all but throughout our childhood we have always been surrounded by machines in television and film. Even now there is so much TV centered on robots and AI. HBO’s incredible future look at one of my favourites Westworld to Channel 4’s Humans a rework of the Swedish science fiction/drama series Real Humans, to films like Alex Garland’s sublime Ex Machina. I’ve been spoilt in my love for robotrons.

I could of gone for total overload on samples for the mix but pulled my enthusiasm in a little and kept it to a minimum, still there’s a fair few which pop up. Images of samples used are at the bottom of the page if you are interested or go in blind and see if you can spot them!

The mix features a heavy tech and electronic soundtrack which has a robot machine feel. Not all the tunes are robot related but I feel they fitted in with the mood of the mix. Feel free to share your robot memories in the comments but most of all I really hope you enjoy this musical journey in (in 50’s B-movie style American voice) “The Robots Have Infiltrated The World!

    • Thanks Mike. It’s was a fun excursion into the realm of robots. I know man! that Westworld poster is BOSS. Yep that needs to be in the vault at MTOTM sharpish! Oh how much I love Running Scared. Great to hear you’re a big fan too but hey that was always gonna be the case 🙂
