If the name Maximum Hedrum evokes memories of a certain talking head/Coca-Cola spokesman, well, that's probably intentional. "Sometimes I feel like I'm a machine, I really can't help that," goes the hook of the strange electro-funk trio's recent "RoboSexual" single. The last time we heard from DJ-producer Sam Spiegel, he was busy building his own Deltron 3030-inspired space-rap rocket ship dubbed N.A.S.A. But with an assist from film scorer Harold Faltermeyer and Sepultura singer Derrick Greene, der Spiegel is reinvented as a cyborg who likes to make it with the freak-freak. Cue Beastie Boy bestie Ad-Rock, who lends his psych-inspired breakbeat prowess to the remix below. "RoboSexual" kicks off with a bit of knowledge from P-Funk godhead George Clinton before busting out the cardboard and windmilling all over the dance floor.
