Unhelpful Robot Remixed into a Song!

So, two years ago I recorded a series of cell phone alerts I titled "Unhelpful Robot", and they were pretty popular for a while. I haven't checked in on them for a while, but apparently people have still been downloading them, which is pretty rad.

Well I just received a message from a DJ in Amsterdam who has used Unhelpful Robot in a club track, that he's actually played FOR OTHER PEOPLE. I can't tell you how exciting this is for a lowly sound designer like myself. I cut my teeth recording club tracks, and I wasn't that good at it, so having someone else not only enjoy your work, but SHARE it with you, is pretty rad.
So now I'll share it with you!
