Editorial Reviews

2011 album from Electronica artist Travis Stewart AKA Machinedrum. After a break from producing, Stewart resurfaced in a major way last year with the Many Faces EP. However, for Room(s), he's well ahead of the curve, approaching recording in a way he's never done before. On the album, Stewart's productions turn the 160 BPM footwork conventions inside out, filling the usually fierce, stripped-down form with elegant, sun-kissed and impressionistic songs built from R&B, autotune and dance music history's most exuberant stabs and kicks. Like the early post-rave sounds of ambient jungle, his beautiful new kind of high-speed, detail-packed mutant pop is psychedelic, exhilarating and strangely relaxing with its fast-paced washes of synths and drums.

Tough to review this. After listening to Machinedrum releases since Merck it's hard to say where this fits. I will say that the sound here is phenomenal. There is nothing really to compare this to. There is a little juke, 2-step, garage, idm, ambient. The issue I have is that after hearing the album multiple times the samples do not do this release justice. This really deserves to be listened to from beginning to end. Each song has a build into which the samples do not play long enough to get into. The samples will give you an idea of what you'll hear but still it is worth a purchase. Also, iToons has the extra song TMPL. Great track. If the samples are anything to go and the sound interests you, buy! This in one of the greatest releases this yeat so far.

I've been following Machinedrum since his debut on the now defunct influential IDM label, Merck. From 2001 to 2006, Travis Stewart released five full length albums on Merck: Now You Know (2001), Urban Biology (2002), Half The Battle (2002), Bidnezz (2004) and Mergerz & Acquisitionz (2006). When Merck closed its doors in January of 2007, many artists had to scramble for a new home that would tailor to their unique sound. Stewart release his next album, titled Want To 1 2?, on Normrex in 2009. A year later, Many Faces was picked up by a brand new Glasgow-based LuckyMe label. So I was very happy to find out that Machinedrum has finally been signed to a bigger label like Planet Mu. He deserves the recognition! But I was also pleasantly surprised to hear some alteration in Machinedrum's sound. True, Stewart always kept up with the evolution of experimental beats, glitch-hop, and bass music, sometimes leaping ahead of the curve with his urban vibes fitting for a ghettolicious hip-hop party. But on Room(s), Stewart takes another step further, embracing everything from haunting auto-tuned vocals, to old-school post-rave 808 sequenced dubstep, to Chicago's fast-paced footwork. I suppose it's the latter aesthetic that really attracted Mike Paradinas` attention - Planet Mu has been at the forefront in championing releases of this underground dance inspired genre. At the center of the album is a `spur of the moment' production, finding Stewart beginning the tracks while traveling and polishing them off in the studio. It is these simple riffs and melodies that get stuck in my mind forever, or at least until I play the album again.
