Even though this memorable summer is coming to an end in a few weeks, there is no doubt that a scorching heat wave has stricken America from the East to West coast recently. The sun is shining yet the people are still raging, so it’s undoubtedly important to stay hydrated, and when water just won’t do the trick, well, that’s where Robotic Pirate Monkey comes in.
 
The Boulder based trio has recently unleashed that perfect batch of blazin’ hot tracks to adequately accommodate your system on those 100-degree days, and help satisfy your desire for something tasty. Whether you’re hanging out by the pool, driving to a party rockin’ music festival, or going on an unforgettable adventure with some friends, we can promise this will be the new soundtrack to celebrate what’s left of summer 2012. Start your engines and make sure you didn’t forget any friends or essential items on the way, because HEAT.WAV is upon us.
 
First up is “Shake n’ Bake,” which kicks open the musical floodgates with some high-flying vocal samples and an armada of groovy bass lines; a feel-good anthem that helps put the “dub” back in dubstep. “Bank On That” is a heavily hip-hop influenced tune that strikes up a perfect balance between “Kick-back” and “Go-hard,” while supplying listener’s with their daily dose of glitch.
 
“Blasted” is a soulful gem that perfectly infuses elements of reggae and jazz to create a powerful set of instrumentations that can’t be denied; a unique tune that continues to show RPM’s rapid progression.
 
“Cant Stop the Blaze” is an emotive song that flawlessly samples vocal and instrumental sections from Nina Simone’s 1964 classic “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood,” to set the foundations for what might be their most gripping track do date.
 
Robotic Pirate Monkey does big things on a synth smackin’ set of tracks that will make any listener forgot that summer is almost over, while further establishing their influence over Colorado’s burgeoning bass movement.
