I’m always excited when a new Machinedrum track surfaces, much less one that’s a remix of one of the tracks off Robotaki’s excellent EP, Science, which just dropped last month. The EP closer, which features City Fidelia, is a rousing blend of hip hop and electronica. Travis Stewart of Machinedrum turns Satisfied on its head by infusing it with loads of neon glistering, synth surging glitch hop energy on his slick shuddering, glossy quivering edit. If you’ve yet to take in Robotaki’s Science EP, stream the release in full, here.

As if we aren’t already all hopped up on the beats we’ve been dropping tonight, we find ourselves more hyped up than ever due to Machinedrum’s whimsical new masterpiece, Hyped Up. If you’ve been missing Wave Racer (yes, I’ve been wondering what happened to him) and you love Basenji, you’re going to adore the direction esteemed producer Machinedrum has gone on his new track. Neon nostalgia and a mischievous spirit coats the youthful cavorting piece. Hyped Up is available, here.

Needed is exactly the right word to describe Machinedrum’s latest single, ‘1 2 B Needed’ after many days of tiring work. The celebrated producer’s song is a zippy vivacious burst of whimsical percussion and jabbing synths. ‘1 2 B Needed’ features UK singer songwriter Roses Gabor on choppy invigorating, pitch shifting vocals. Machinedrum offers up a fantastical trip with his serrated stuttering, glitchy jittering electronica. Stream/download the tune, here.

British singer songwriter and musician Rosie Lowe is no stranger to working with Travis Stewart, better known as Machinedrum. The pair have collaborated on music off of Rosie Lowe’s 2016 debut album Control in the past. Rosie Lowe and Machinedrum now reunite on What Is This, a riveting eruption of the North Carolina producer’s jittery glitch hop and finely textured electronica. What Is This is a nimble jabbing yet dreamy introspective affair. Rosie Lowe’s R&B pop vocals add to the song’s silky sleek sheen. You can purchase or stream What Is This from additional outlets, here.

You “betta” get on this brand new Machinedrum, stat. The production veteran hasn’t dropped any fresh originals since last year’s Human Energy, so it’s a unquestionable treat that he’s returned with such a brilliant masterpiece. U Betta is a frenetic whizzing spectacular. Its tantalizing shards splinter and burst with hyperactive poise. Spindly guitar add to U Betta’s already fine texture. U Betta is spine tingling, skin crawling, and perky quivering good. This future beats and trap & bass opus is out now via Ninja Tune. Stream at additional services or purchase, here.

Much esteemed North Carolina production veteran Machinedrum recently announced a North American tour to commence this fall. He also unleashed a beast of a tune named Angel Speak, featuring Brooklyn’s MeLo-X. Angel Speak is a sinuous twisting, vivacious resonant behemoth. Jersey bounce meets glitchy thrumming future beats, all topped off with some dancehall vibes and plentiful steely future house. Who needs caffeine when we have Machinedrum’s Angel Speak? Grab the thrilling tune from various outlets, here. North American tour details can be found, here.

I never really listened to Danity Kane in my younger days, as much as they were an influential force in the music scene for quite some time, but I’m most certainly following along with ex Danity Kane member Dawn Richard’s solo career these days. And I’m not the only one, too. Dawn Richard, or D∆WN, has been releasing some stellar eletropop and R&B ballads, turning heads and winning ears over all across the tastemakers board. D∆WN goes dance energetic on zippy piquant new tune Wake Up, a whorling magnificent, throbbing dynamic jam produced by ever brilliant Machinedrum. It’s no secret that D∆WN’s forthcoming full length RED*emp*tion is shaping up to be a must listen release when it comes out later this year. Wake Up is available now from iTunes.
