In a hail of drumbeats and thundering footwork, Machinedrum returns to Australia and New Zealand this November to heat up summer festivals and exclusive club shows alike, including the infamous Australia’s ‘orginal bush doof’ Earthcore, proudly presented by The Operatives.
Machinedrum has produced and composed over a dozen albums under various aliases since his first independent release in 1999. Covering an astonishing variety of styles through his solo work and with collaborative projects Sepalcure, JETS and Dream Continuum, Travis delivers his signature on every thing he touches; from his 2013 ‘Vapor City’ LP for Ninja Tune, to his production work for the likes of Azealia Banks, Jamie Liddell and Jesse Boykins II, which has made him widely recognised as a producer’s producer and a pioneer of many styles.
Just last year, Machinedrum linked with Melbourne based artists SK Simeon and Yaw Faso (formerly Yaw Mulatto) – the two have a history of innovation, exploring the spaces between dancehall, Afrobeat and bass music. The MASKYA EP, out now through Big Dada, see’s the duo split the mic duties 50/50, with Machinedrum in rude health providing four rough, rugged and raw futuristic dancehall riddims to test any sound system.
