Metropolis Pt. I (EP)

Metropolis Pt. I by The M Machine
Released: Apr 2012
Label: OWSLA
The first dozen or so releases on Skrillex's OWSLA imprint have tended to follow his own lunging, grating, overblown fashion, but San Francisco's M Machine take the label confidently into home-listening territory. "A King Alone" is chiming electro-pop that asks what happens if The Postal Service had grown up on trance music; "Immigrants" is paced for the festival stage, but it's still a pop song at heart. "Deep Search" explores the triplet rhythms of German schaffel techno of the '90s, and the final three tracks go from Hot Chip vibes to searing dubstep without batting an eye.
