Free the Robots (born Chris Alfaro) is an underground hip hop producer from Santa Ana, California.
Free the Robots pulls together jazz, psychedelic music, electronic music and hip hop, with progressive melodies and devastating drums. His techniques create harmony between genres with the blending of obscure samples with analog and digital compositions.
Free the Robots started as a side project by Chris Alfaro in 2003, while also playing with different bands, DJing, producing tracks for rappers. Having worked with so many different styles of music, Free the Robots brought everything together under one roof, allowing further exploration. With the use of samples, controllers, and other live instruments, he creates a balance between the sounds of the past, present and future. He has reached a worldwide audience since its beginnings and found its place among the top artists in this genre, sharing the stage with the likes of Prefuse 73, Flying Lotus, The Glitch Mob, Afrika Bambaataa and more.
