Semi-Automatik is Music for your ears & Words for your brain to help calm your fears and soothe your pain.
Born out of the ashes of a former project, Semi-Automatik is the brainchild of Musicians and Composers Jason Burgin, Robert Mendoza. Fusing influences as disparate Funk, Rock, Soul, Folk, Latin, Jazz, Punk, and Hip Hop, Semi-Automatik has managed to create a sound that is the truest possible synthesis and expression of all the experiences of a lifetime raised in the greatest city in the world.
You can be my friend if...
You love life and don't have time to act to cool to hide that fact.
