Ben Sims and Kirk Degiorgio Launch New Label
- Words: Cam Curran
Machine is a new imprint stemming from techno veterans Ben Sims' and Kirk Degiorgio's (pictured above) London night of the same name, a label that will be "purely focused on new music and eschew anything over a year or so old." With the Machine club night rapidly taking hold in the English capital, Sims and Degiorgio have prepared a three-track plate for release on May 15, a record featuring driving, industrial-designed techno and simply titled Machine001. Each producer contributed a tune to the EP, with Sims creating "Metal Works" while also interpreting Degiorgio's contribution, "Machine Theme," in an additional remix on the flip. You can preview the artwork and new tracks for the label below, and also check out a video of Degiorgio's performance from their March 30 club night in London.
