Once upon a time (2003) in a faraway land called Bosnia and Herzegovina, a group of friends decided to form a band. Along with local Balkan flavors, their musical influences come from all over the world: ska, punk, reggae, electronic, hip-hop. Fast forward to 2020 the band continues stronger than ever and are now established as among the best and most popular live outfits in Eastern Europe.
Because of a total lack of talent in the band, Dubioza Kolektiv have been forced to turn to advanced automated and artificial artistic-intelligence powered solutions. This is why they created ROBBY MEGABYTE – the first humanoid robot entertainment assistant, who helped them to record new songs for their brand new album #fakenews out now. Their new single ‘Take My Job Away’ features the first appearance of Robby Megabyte – humanoid entertainment assistant.
#fakenews is Dubioza Kolektiv’s new album, expressing their unique blend of righteous rage and love of life and humankind. The spread of online #fakenews over the years was the main inspiration for this album. Besides Robby Megabyte, it features guest appearances by Manu Chao, Earl 16 from Dreadzone, Toma Feterman of Soviet Suprem and Mexican band Los de Abajo.
