The Beat Club and Electrobeat Records
Inspired by the rhythmic insanity of the Miami Bass movement, the techno-savvies of Kraftwerk and the pop sensibilities of New Order, The Beat Club, originally a one-off studio project, has now endured for almost two decades.
The Beat Club (Ony Rodriguez along with his wife, Mirey Valls) formed Electrobeat Records in 1992 as a statement of independence. Working within the framework of a major label drained the creative energies of the project, in direct conflict with Onyâs basic philosophy that âcreating music should be funâ. Hence, on the recommendation of The Beat Clubâs UK label head and then manager Rob Gretton, Atlantic Recordâs US contract was left to expire. Rob was a great influence on prioritizing the artistâs needs over that of commerce. His success with Manchesterâs Factory Records and as New Orderâs manager vindicated his philosophy.
A series of singles such as âSecurityâ, âDreams Were Made To Be Brokenâ and âTransamericaâ landed The Beat Club on electronic musicâs most influential lists from publications including The Wire and MixMag. In addition, almost a dozen albums have been released under the guises of Fuzzy Logic, Toys For The Revolution, Santa Fe and Urban Select. Since going it alone and forming Electrobeat, The Beat Club has never looked back.
There was no intent for the old âconcept albumâ cliché, yet, I did see a general theme developing during the production of these tracks. The story of the dehumanizing âherdâ mentality is even more relevant in todayâs society. This is a universal theme that goes beyond politics into social trends and fashion -and two singles from the album, which have been already released, âDream Within A Dreamâ and âLost In Spaceâ definitely articulate this concept.
I had a vision of a controlling entity keeping its constituency in line. Mobilizing and energizing it at will, while keeping the members off guard, not ever fully understanding the consequence of their actions. I wanted to create a world of machine-generated rhythms and sequences to move the listener, not unlike the mood created in the most energetic of dance-oriented clubs. I looked to my original inspiration for The Beat Club, the 808/909 drums and percussion, the sweeping filters and analog minimal bass lines. These are the classic sounds that form the foundation for the energy required by my world of automatons in Robotica. â Ony

Security would have been nothing without Legendary Producer Avy Gonzalez, the true talent behind the song, who notably was not on Robotica. Avy�s vision and direction on Security is the reason why it�s still played till this day as well as a number of other hits Avy produced. I�m shocked you didn�t even mention him on your credits. Robotica was a failed project, no surprise !
