A message from Bilal:
I’m excited about this remix contest we’re having for “Robots.” I can’t wait to hear what each of you come up with! This song is about status and the trickle down effect. I originally wrote this song in my hotel room in Rotterdam when I was on tour with Spike Lee. I kept everything I wrote on this song except for the drums, which Steve Mckie put new drums on the final version. I look forward to listening to everyone’s submissions. This will be a real treat for me.

Here’s a look behind the scenes of French director Mikael Colombu’s “Robots”.
