Founded by DJ & producer Sacha Robotti out of Los Angeles, Slothacid is an internationally operating record label and clothing brand.
Not content with a collection of critically acclaimed releases under his belt on labels like Dirtybird, Octopus Records, Desert Hearts, This Ain’t Bristol and more, Sacha Robotti has been building a solid reputation as one of the electronic music scene’s most proficient producers and a firm festival favorite across North America. However, all that was merely preparation for what’s still to come and 2019 looks to kick off a new era for him, as he announces the launch of his own record label with a devastating EP and an extended Open to Close Tour concept that will see him showcase the Slothacid sound across 20+ dates all over North America this Fall.
Not one to do things by halves, this triple announcement from Sacha lays out his plans for the foreseeable future with a focus on homegrown projects which truly demonstrate his inimitable sound and dedication to his Sloth brand that is now synonymous with the veteran producer. The first step in this plan comes to fruition in July 2019 with the first single from the imprint’s debut EP, ‘Welcome To Slothacid’.
Fall 2019 will see Sacha hit the road on his tour, Welcome To Acid: An Open To Close Trip. Sacha will take control of the night and showcase his talent, and with over 20 dates already confirmed, you can expect to see a lot more of Sacha Robotti over the coming months and in 2020.
Last but not least, Slothacid operates as a brand of apparel, created in partnership with graphic & fashion designer Jermane Miles based in California, with over 20 years experience in the field. The apparel line aims at collaborating with artists from other disciplines while also giving back to rescue sloths in the wild.
Sacha says, “since I’ve used this sloth logo that my friend Mikal Brucken designed for my warehouse parties in LA a couple of years ago, the sloth has mutated itself into a spirit animal that has been increasingly associated with my artist persona, even though I didn't plan or push this at all at the beginning. Now fans tag me in sloth pix everyday, wear sloth onesies to shows, or gift me sloth swagger! Sloths are an endangered species of friendly, chill creatures who like to sleep a lot and seem to live happily in the moment — qualities I can relate to, especially today in our performance-driven society.
The legend goes that magic sloth candy blew minds during my set at Desert Hearts Festival 2017, and the term 'Slothacid' was coined. I then started calling the style of electronic music that I like to play out at festivals and clubs 'Slothacid': a mix of groovy, emotional, weird, psychedelic sounds with tough beats that hopefully will take you on a journey through space-time.”
