We are nolongerhuman, and this is only the beginning...
nolongerhuman is the sole project of Clint Robertson.
Starting in 2000, with a project called Varix, which focused on heavy electronics and Noise infused beats, Clint was quickly noticed and included in several compilations.
2004, furthering the nolongerhuman concept, several demo only recordings were released, and the development of what would become nolongerhuman's signature sound began emerging.
2006 saw the first compilation release, a track titled Transcend Humanity on BLC Records Interbreeding IX: Kuru. It generated a great amount of interest, even without vocals, and again, showed a remarkable growth from earlier work, in addition to catching the interest of several promoters and DJ's all along the West Coast.
2007, nolongerhuman continued to work on new music, seeing the release of 13 tracks, all creating a growing fan base both locally, nationally, and internationally. The first live shows began to be discussed. In May, the first nolongerhuman show, with two other local bands in Portland took place, to a stunned audience. Immediately after getting off stage he was approached for 4 more shows. Each subsequent show, opening for bands like Haujobb, and Gothminister, and God Module, earned more fans, and more supporters of the music. The demand for a longer live set quickly developed, which led to the first nolongerhuman headline show.
2009 saw the release of the debut album “Antipathy” on COP International Records. Released to nearly universal positive reviews “Antipathy” became a must have. Genre bending harsh electronics with a sense of emotion rarely seen in. Focused, determined, with a message to carry. Touring for “Antipathy” began in late 2009 and continued through 2010, supporting acts like both Nachtmahr and Funker Vogt.
2012, nolongerhuman releases “Depersonalization” on COP international. Focusing on the inhumanity in everyday life. The music is a direct response to everyday atrocity, the lyrics are both political, personal, and sociological. Heavy, distorted beats, screamed vocals, and incredibly aggressive keyboards come together with the use of found samples and movie samples as well as real emotion, nolongerhuman is as much a diary as it is an experience. All combining to form one of the most punishing, thought provoking acts available.
2014 now brings the third album, "Withdrawal." A great mixture of hard hitting beats, catchy keyboard riffs and a haunting sense of ambience drenched with foreboding swirls of doom. Heavy use of vocal samples put "Withdrawal' in a historical context, harking back to early 90s industrial. A deeply personal album, a journey to find oneself, yet it never shies away to take a stand, to be honest, to be truthful.
Currently, the fourth album, Marionette, is in progress. ‘Marionette’ is a reflection of individuals in the world and their place in society. This album’s mission is to engage the audience with classic industrial and electronic music while incorporating a theatrical theme composed to represent the lifespan of an individual.
"I only plan on moving forward from here, or I will die trying."
As a project which started literally out of a bedroom, nolongerhuman moved from an idea to a reality based almost entirely on being played in small venues. First by local DJ’s, then live from the stages, and in some cases, the floors of small clubs all over the country.
Not only nolongerhuman, but the majority of music projects you listen to have been able to bring their music and unique visions to people purely because these smaller, lesser known venues exist.
Independent venues are where art thrives in its purest, rawest form.
We need them to exist; you need them to exist.
Independent venues were the first to close and they will be the last to open. They may never be able to open again if they are unable to get relief funding.
NIVA – National Independent Venue Association, representing over 1,300 independent venues and promoters, is organizing to secure financial relief from the federal government so these venues can survive the economic hit from the pandemic and re-open when it’s safe.
Please go to SaveOurStages.com and, with one click, tell Congress you support independent venues.
