To answer your first question I was always very highly influenced by the arts. My mom went to Columbus Collage of art and design. My sister is an awesome artist and the music I heard from growing up around her highly influenced me to make the music I make today. So when I first started my best friend and brother like figure in my life Richard a.k.a. Splfk and some other old friends i had started a punk band called anti-socialz in 1998 - 1999 we never got anywhere but we rocked and were crusty as fuck. from there afterwards around 2000 - 2002 I was shown a program from Splfk called Fruity Loops 3.0 this was back when FL Studio lacked the features it has now but I was fascinated by it and how limitless it was. So i started making some unique music on it and from then on it was music history.
Why the name Robotic Joe?
I was first called Robotic Joe by my best friend Splfk he was making music and asked if he could sample me talking i said ok he came up with robotic because i collected and still do robots from the 1980's and then just added My Name Joe.
How do you influence your project? music? other sources?
My music is influenced by art both audio and visual and whatever going on in my mind. I developed bi-polar / manic depression at a young age like 9 or 10 years old so that's prolly. why my music is so chaotic in parts, random in parts and then mellow in parts and i don't change it for anyone. I am myself, what you hear is what you get. my music is not really classified as any genre it is it's own genre. I'm all genres blenderized.
What is your relationship with Netlabels?
Netlabels are very important to me and I'm on a family of about 7 so far besides v.a. compilations i'm on. Obviously Sirona Records lol, SP Recordings (also did writings called Dream Status for sprag) Proc-Records, cOmaRecOrdz, Scolex Recordings, Ende Records, and my very first releases were on the defunk net-label Splatterfunk that's no longer around.
Do you have some other passions than music, artistic or not ?
Yes i like to paint and also use my pc to develop various digital art with vibrant and high saturation on colors
How would you define your sound for someone who has strictly no idea what you do?
Since I already answered the question of how to define my sound, I just wanted to thank everyone who has been a robotic joe fan since the beginning and has stuck by me through thick n' thin other the years THANX!
How is the futur of Robotic Joe in your mind? Some projects?
Robotic Joe is going good right now I have an etire album called B.O.15.T. Which is full of 2015 tracks on the back burner until Scolex Recordings is ready to release it and then I also have some various side projects I'm working on slowly but surely with different artists one called Necromancy Manifestation which includes me and Betty Koster a.k.a. PHANTASM NOCTURNES. I'm in another side project with my best friend and bro like figure in my life Tony and were not sure on a group name yet but our album will be called Double Trouble.
Last words are yours!
Basically the only last words I can say is: The more technical your style gets the more fun & <3 you have for it! p.s. stay off the drugs too kids it's way more fun to create with your mind & soul then your soul being rotted away by drugs and being a clique. Fuck Drugs! Sincerely, Joseph Paul Moore a.k.a. Robotic Joe
