Machinedrum Takes Over the Essential Mix + LA Show 11/21


It’s difficult to master multiple forms of music, but Brooklyn-based Machinedrum is one of those enigmas who has consistently produced quality tunes within the worlds of Jungle, Footwork, R&B, Pop, and more for years. Taking part in successful collaborative side projects such as Jets with Jimmy Edgar, Sepalcure with Praveen Sharma, and Dream Continuum with Om Unit has allowed him to expand his musical horizons as well, all while finding even more time to produce Pop hits for the likes of Azealia Banks and Theophilus London. To say he’s a busy man would be an understatement.

Just this weekend, he was deservedly tapped by Pete Tong for the glorified Essential Mix on BBC’s Radio 1, including a hefty amount of his own material, from solo work to collaborations. Also notable in this selection are unreleased tunes from Machinedrum featuring MASSIVE names like Kanye West, Pusha T, Bun B, E-40, Lil’ Flip (do I need to keep going???). Get ready to move your feet a little bit. √+
