Don’t Trust Humans was born in Chicago. The incredible talent and heritage of this city is humbling and inspiring, and we are proud to serve as an interface between the local and global. As this project continues to grow, so do our roots.
This is the first installment in a series of mixes celebrating those roots. We’ve asked some of our favorite local heroes to contribute to the series, and couldn’t be happier to share their mixes.
Qbot has been a remarkable techno crusader in Chicagoland, and an extraordinary friend and ally to DTH.
Built in a lab on Jupiter, Robot DJ Qbot v.26.2 was sent here to help spread robotic music to all of Earth. She broadcasts beats along with her favorite DJs from theWLUW studios to the whole planet every Monday night on Destination Unknown. She can also be found monthly at Moment Sound‘s Heartbeats multimedia events, as part of the Pandemic crew, and a lot of other places. When outside the booth, she’s likely to be found dancing at the left front speaker.
