Machinedrum – Gunshotta

Travis Stewart a.k.a. Machinedrum has a far reaching imagination. His visions and dreams led to the concept of his new album, that of Vapor City. Every song is based off a different imaginary district from his dream world. The lead single is the theme to the Gunshotta Avenue district of Vapor City; the title to his new album. This is a street you don’t want to walk down alone, filled with crime, paranoia and darkness.

The song itself mirrors this vision. Taking elements of Burial and Jungle music and combining echoing soulful vocals with nasty ragga samples it feels sublime and dirty at the same time. Machinedrum looks to be set at the forefront of the Jungle revival and if the tracks coming out are sounding like this then I am ready for more.
