about

In The Room The Women Come And Go. Talking Of Michelangelo, the title of Drone Emoji's debut full-length album, is borrowed from T.S. Elliot's Prufrock. But it's far from the only borrowed thing on the record: Drone Emoji samples, cites, appropriates, and remixes unlikely source material into a refreshing breath of absurdity, mashing up a mind-boggling selection of anything-goes bangers and obscure quotes into previously unheard contexts, all heavily spiced up by his frisky sense of humor.

Without even trying hard to create any sort of a clout, Drone Emoji's excellent debut EP เป็นฟอนต์ที่ได้ (out on ŠOP Records) was praised in almost the only two relevant Slovenian media – Radio Študent and Mladina – as the record of the year. Which probably made him give even less shit about anything. His genuine carelessness – which permeates the debut album for rx:tx to its core – seems to be additionally empowered by the fact that his identity is playfully shrouded in a cloud of anonymity: In the club he wouldn't put on a fancy mask like those EDM DJs do, he'd rather place a random person up on stage, while he's secretly performing in some hidden corner of the venue.
