Robotobibok (a blend of two Polish words for robot and skiver) was formed in 1998 in Wroclaw. From the very beginning, their music has seemed to combine modern electronic music with the energy of improvised jazz. Strong and acoustic drums, double bass and trumpet intertwine with dreamy vibraphone, electric guitar and characteristic 70's analogue electronica.

Members: Marcin Ciupidro - vibraphone; Artur Majewski - trumpet, el. piano; Marcin Ożóg - acoustic bass, el. bass; Kuba Suchar - drums, MiniMoog.

The result evokes the atmosphere of 70's electric jazz and early electroacoustic experiments. The core of Robotobibok's music is their post-jazz rhythm section, ostensibly inspired by the newest electronica, but going further and building more intricate structures. Robotobibok also try to develop their own language in improvisation; individual instruments sometimes do solo, but none of them dominates in the end.
