Listen to Machinedrum's Remix of Kelis
- Words: Melkorka Licea
After sharing Mount Kimbie's remix of "Jerk Ribs," a tune from her forthcoming Food LP for Ninja Tune, back in January, underground pop star Kelis has just unveiled a remix of another record cut by label mate Machinedrum (a.k.a. Travis Stewart, pictured above). The unceasingly prolific artist's version of "Runnin" takes a decisive approach, placing its stark focus on percussion as it employs a basic drum-machine pattern and loud claps. Stewart then surrounds his beats with torrents of effervescent synths and Kelis' echoing harmonies. Below, "Runnin (Machinedrum Remix)" can be streamed in full before Food sees its official release on April 21.
