It’s not what you know it’s who you know, and we’re very privileged to know this very talented and super sweet man… Robi Insinna aka Headman | Manhead. As usual we threw our signature mini interview questions out into the universe and got a killer track back plus heaps of cool information… Please read and enjoy, there’s loads going on in the world of Relish Recordings.
Who is Headman?
Headman is me Robi Insinna who also produces under the name Manhead. I’m not a split person, it was just because I like the idea of playing with names and having a project where I could use slightly different influences. The new album will feature Headman and Manhead on the same record.
How did this whole music thing start?
I wonder sometimes as well?! Since I can remember I was into music. At one stage I was very interested in the combination of art and music. So I guess since I was doing art I wanted to start doing music…
What’s just been released on Relish?
The Units ‘High Pressure Days Remixes’, Headman ‘Dreampieces/Dirt, and coming up is the Relish E.P. Sampler and Relish Comp II. Also, later in the year is the new Headman album.
