Miami House Hero’s Ultimate Terror ::

Reported by Trackitdown TID on August 14, 2004

“I hate spiders, I hate roaches and most of all, I hate snakes,” said Robbie.

When I see a roach, I’ll kill it, I find them so fucking disgusting. But if I see a snake you’re gonna’ see me run,” he confessed.

The Puerto Rican born producer is currently based in Barcelona (Spain) after temporarily relocating from Florida last summer where he admitted he’d had more than few scares as a result of his phobias.

“I used to have a residency in Miami and you’d get these idiots going into clubs there with huge snakes around their necks, huge Boa snakes, thinking they’re cool,” he recalled.

“It’s not cool to me at all having those fucking poor snakes there having to cope with all this loud music. They’re probably just about to bite somebody.”

The safety conscious producer also revealed he avoids both Colombia and Israel for the ‘danger factor’ though admitted he’d been blown away by a gig in Beirut earlier this summer.

I know nothing bad has happened in Beirut for the last two years, but it’s a Middle Eastern country and I’m an American, so all my friends in the States were like ‘you’re fucking crazy playing there’,” he recalled.

“But was amazing and totally, normal, I’m dying to go back there.”
