North Carolina's Travis Stewart is well known in the IDM circuit. Aside from this, his solo project, he is also well known for his collaborative work in Sepalcure,Jets and Syndrone.

Whilst Machinedrum's releases have skimmed around the surfaces of Merck,Normrex and (most recently and famously) Planet Mu this latest release, 'Vapor City', seems to sit more comfortably in Ninja Tune who he signed for only this year.

Up until now his music has provided moments of brilliance and cunning artistry but lacked an idea or common motive. This is perhaps Travis' most complete and coherent release to date; the conceptual metropolis of 'Vapor City' is held together tightly by its vivid Burial-esque imagery.

Characterised by symphonies of cascading and euphoric synth lines with clattering off-centre beats, Machinedrum's highlights become the tracks that get lost in hypnotics before taking an unexpected and deeper change in direction around the 3-minute mark.

There is a certain formula within Travis' work that cultivates music which is currently sitting at the forefront of forward thinking electronic music but takes inspiration from jazz and hip hop.

I'd like to recommend seeing this guy DJ live; I saw him play at the Lightbox in Vauxhall and it still remains one of the coolest parties I have been to. Just simply great music.

On a final note, I cannot stop listening to the second track. It's infectious.

Listen to: 'Infinite Us', 'Center Your Love', 'SeeSea', 'Eyesdontlie'

I was very surprised my local independent record shop didn't have this cd listed orin stock - implied it might be import when Ninja Tunes isn't! Machinedrum has been appearing in UK!
I was very pleased to get cd by next day delivery from Amazon.
Machinedrum is interesting & innovative musician

Bought double vinyl after being raved in Boiler room with Machinedrum's mysterious mix.
Album full of chillin' tunes, deep melodies.
Must have.
