Kristian Craig Robinson aka 'Capitol K' first emerged a decade ago at the forefront of the burgeoning electronic scene, releasing two groundbreaking electronic albums on Planet Mu, “Sounds Of The Empire” (1999) and “Island Row” (2000). His experiments with Lo-if Guitar Noise, Collarge & found sound merged with strong Melodies and Falsetto Vocals lead to to the pioneering what the critics later called "Folktronica".
Based in London, Born In Malta raised in Brunei (S.E Asia) Sonic Tourism and collaboration has been a constant feature of Capitol K's Music.

In recent years he's toured the world performing with Brazilian Artist "Cibelle" (Crammed), is currently Touring performing with "Archie Bronson Outfit" (Domino) and has established "Studio Plateaux", a boutique Recording studio from which he's produced sessions for cult acts such as "Atlas Sound" "Vivian Girls" & "Ariel Pink"

In 2003 he set up his own label “Faith And Industry”. Releasing the debut E.P & album by 'Patrick Wolf' followed by further Capitol K albums. the latest being "Notes From Life On the wire with a wrecking Ball" (2008)

He wrote a load of Cumbias traveled through South America collected Sounds Instruments and Love ! On return to the U.K i performed this material on a few occasions as Duo with Brazilian Tropicalist "Cibelle" who added additional Juno 60 Synth to the tracks. The performance was called.. "Me Tarzan You Jane"

After a re-vist to the Southern Hemisphere it felt right also to re-visit these tracks and continue the experiments.
