Room(s) by Machinedrum
Released: Jul 2011
Label: Planet Mu
Travis Stewart has been parsing hip-hop beats and twitchy electro as Machinedrum for a decade, and on his first album for Planet Mu, the project returns reinvigorated, sounding almost reborn. He's borrowed his lickety-split syncopations from Chicago juke music and modeled his soaring vocal samples on Joy Orbison's ecstatic style, but the end result is unique. Machinedrum's breakbeats move with a rare energy, and the synths and voices add vivid color and lush, seductive texture; tracks like "GBYE" tell you all you need to know about his vision of futurist R&B.
