Machinedrum Remixes Sun Ra on New 12", Shares Preview
- Words: Rebecca Bratburd
Multi-faceted, globe-trotting producer Machinedrum (a.k.a. Travis Stewart) is set to release a spunky interpretation of prolific jazz experimentalist Sun Ra's "Door of the Cosmos," which will arive later this month as a 12" complete with the original piece on the flip side. Stewart is the third artist in a series of releases inspired by the legendary composer, a string of records curated by Dublin's All City label and featuring contributions from Ras G (responsible for "MDU NTR") and the late Southern California composer/pianist/producer Austin Peralta (who gave us "Space Lonliness #2" before his untimely passing). Before Machinedrum's vinyl-only release arrives on January 28, you can preview his mind-boggling work below.
