At this point, Booth favorite Bullet doesn’t need much in the way of an introduction—in the year since he first hit our front page, we’ve watched the Chi-town up-and-comer and production partner Slot A develop a sound that, though trendy as all get-out, remains very much their own. With such a good thing going, you’d expect Bullet to take an “if it ain’t broke” approach to his debut single, and, sure enough, not much has changed—Mr. Robotic is another of the twosome’s signature club bangers. The emcee’s propulsive flow and the beatsmith’s scorching synth grooves are in full effect here; the formula’s simply been tweaked for maximum dancefloor-packing power. The biggest surprise actually comes at the record’s very end, when Slot A’s instrumental changes key, segueing into an off-kilter keyboard solo that, as far as I’m concerned, could’ve gone on for another minute or so without overstaying its welcome. Bullet’s forthcoming EP of the same name has yet to receive a solid release date, but with the emcee’s consistent knack for turning in crowd-pleasing hits, it should only be a matter of time…
