Biography

"Unit 13 remind me of dirty sex at 4am, half closed eyelids in a bar surrounded by smoke, and a lust I can't contain. In short, their music makes me want to dance!" Magdalena, Mz Ann Thropik

Described as “the Presets on crack”, Unit 13’s debut album ‘thesexthedeaththedisco’ is a loud, and throbbing journey into the club scene. It is the sweat, euphoria and desire of bodies on the dance-floor. It is the voice of the club kids, the deviants and femme fatales of the night.

Robert Finder and Ivan Teklic began collaborating as Unit 13 in early 2008. In January 2009, their debut album 'thesexthedeaththedisco' was complete. It's now available on Beatport.

A dirty blend between a DJ act and a live band, their live shows are sensory overload. Custom visuals and lighting are synchronised with the music, and their set is mixed without a moment to stop dancing. Ivan mixes on decks, and Rob plays guitar. The two alternate between vocals.

Under the pseudonym, ‘Jet Black’, Ivan has released tunes internationally through several high profile labels, and has had his tracks played by Alex Kidd and major music festivals and clubs
including Tidy New Year Weekender and Inside Out.

Rob is a musician, producer and engineer. As a COFA Honours student in 2007, he released his solo EP ‘Noisician’, and is currently completing Masters at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. His visual and audio work has been featured and distributed throughout the United States and Germany.

At the moment Rob and Ivan are perfecting their live show, and working on remixes for further releases throughout 2009.

Lyrics

Keep Running

Written By: Unit 13

I'm your libertine
Your deviant in disguise
In between these dirty sheets
I lie with you

I'm your Marquis de Sade
With a bleeding heart
In between these dirty sheets
I lie to you

You're the woman in the red dress
And you wear it well
In between these dirty sheets
You lie with me

You're my femme fatale
With no morale
In between these dirty sheets
You lie to me

You can keep running
You can keep running
I'll be close
I'll be close behind
You could stay
You could stay here
I'm coming
I'm coming
I'm coming
After you

One Night Only

Written By: Unit 13

She's out on the town tonight
And she's going to paint it red
He's out hunting tonight
He's out there for the game

This is not for love
This is for one night only
This is not for love
This is for one night

She meets him at the bar
She shows some skin
He buys her a drink
And he asks for her name
They both know that

This is not for love
This is for one night only
This is not for love
This is for one night

She goes back to his place
She tries to save some face
He takes her by the hand
He mounts his prize

This is not for love
This is for one night only
This is not for love
This is for one night

A Friend of Mine

Written By: Unit 13

I've got an itch she said
I want to break your heart
And tear you apart
She began to move
Against me
Throbbing bodies on the floor

I'll see you soon she said
In the powder room
Under the strobe light
She's up all night
Sweat on her skin
Throbbing bodies needing more

A friend of mine
Passed me by
A friend of mine
Passed the time
A friend of mine
Crossed the line
A friend of mine
Bleeds me dry

A friend of mine
Passed me by
A friend of mine
Passed the time
A friend of mine
Crossed the line
A friend of mine
A friend of mine

Day breaks
The body aches
It's time to leave she said
Take me to bed
Mine or yours?
Down on all fours

Use me up and spit it out
Just like you always do
This is the last time
Just like the first time
Throbbing bodies on the floor

A friend of mine
Passed me by
A friend of mine
Passed the time
A friend of mine
Crossed the line
A friend of mine
Bleeds me dry

A friend of mine
Passed me by
A friend of mine
Passed the time
A friend of mine
Crossed the line
A friend of mine
A friend of mine

Give Up Get Off

Written By: Unit 13

No
Won't break me down
Yes
I will be gone
Hate
The thing you are
Love
To deconstruct
I
Am a star
You
You kill my buzz
Can
You be leaving?
Can't
Go on with this

I just
Need to
Give up

I just
Need to
Get off

No
I won't answer
Yes
I fucking lied
Hate
Your dirty Smile
Love
To see you cry
I
Can't sympathise
You
Just make me sick
Can
You scream louder?
Can't
Hear you yet

I just
Need to
Give up

I just
Need to
Get off

Be On Your Way

Written By: Unit 13

You and I will find a way
We'll agree to disagree
Stop and think for a minute
Let's close the drapes
And watch it fade

I don't feel the need to breathe
Why must you just hang around?
Slam my face in to the ground
We just need to settle down

Take a minute to break your neck
Feel it linger in your spine
I think we just crossed the line
No going back
You can't walk now

I just want you
To know the that you are
To the know that you play
Is just as bad as your are

Karma's a bitch
And she fucking hates you and me
I'll be damned
If I don't take her out
When I go

I need you to be on your way
I'm not hesitating I won't lie
I need you to be on your way
You can't keep up
You've got no game

Every time I think of you
The thought of us just me sick
We love to hate we hate to love
So why don't we just stop pretending?

Just drop the bomb and let it burn
Just pull the plug
And drain the blood
Just burn the bridge
And watch it crash
And be sure to disappear

I know that you
Think you've done nothing wrong
But all is fair in this game
So don't you turn it on me

I don't even know the hell
Is going on with me
Am I losing my mind
Or just starting to see?

I need you to be on your way
I'm not hesitating I won't lie
I need you to be on your way
You can't keep up
You've got no game

Stressed out but I really don't care
Paranoia - Euphoria
Punched my own ticket now I'm on my way
A legendary - waste of skin
Never forgotten but I won't be missed
Through a foggy mist - I see it so clearly
Once upon a time you held me so dearly
Fucked you then but you're fucking me now

Took advantage of a consequence
Didn't really think that I might regret
Had an 8-ball - on my own
Nothing hurts I’m out of my head
Deceptive thoughts me close to the truth
Socially fine - Physically wrong
At the time was the greatest thing
Never again but would do the same thing

The sex the death the disco disco disco disco disco

Such a stand out but just the same
Found myself in insanity
Lost it again in reality
The illusion of trust is just laughable
Rolled the dice - Knew the outcome
Take a back step to move on forward
Forwards backward is just as good
Do another a line - I'm at my best

In a whore house - I ound redemption
Everyone's a slut - But you're an exception
In me you saw yourself
In you - Is where I was
Funny how you never seem to shy away
Funny how you never see the light of day
Kept my in the dark for so many years
Kept you in the dark you look better that way

The sex the death the disco

Out of my body - in to my mind
Took a little time – I will find
A disconnection - lost and blind
Association with an unknown kind
Bipolar but so consistently
A gathered maniac
Who likes you – spites you
Doesn’t give a fuck about what you do

Suck it in – Don’t hold it in
Hold your breath – you won’t breathless
Passed a bullet – But left you bleeding
Got a kick from all that teasing
Recovered fine but now in pieces
Tell yourself – what went wrong
Ask one question – Am I jaded?
I don’t give a fuck let’s do it again

The sex the death the disco
