Producer-of-the-moment Noob delivers a muscular, squidgy house monster, fresh from his massive remixes for Tiga & D.I.M.
The charmingly named Deathface (including autoKratz’s label mate Johnny from Guns n' Bombs) remix is a distorted, nasty, amen-fuelled freak-fest.
Japan’s finest electro protégés 80Kidz provide a lighter, poppier take on things whilst maintaining the energy of the original and adding old school riffs.
London's The Rogue Element combine uplifting electro with a down and dirty bassline workout and French newcomers Logo round things off with a subtly uplifting, arrpegioed electro floorfiller.

The end of the British summer marks the release of the addictive summer smash ‘Stay The Same’ from the UK’s most talked about electronic stars to watch - autoKratz.

The press response was equally ecstatic with dazzling reviews across the board including NME, The Star and The Guardian.

This summer has seen them receive a rapturous response at festivals throughout Europe, whilst their own sell-out headline shows across the UK culminated with an ecstatic homecoming at London’s Scala back in June - a performance which justified why autoKratz have been touted as ‘the most significant live electronic act to have emerged in recent years.’
Stay The Same offers a glimpse of the variety and depth on the critically acclaimed Animal, justifying the bands standing as the flag bearers of the new wave of British electronic music.
