Listen to Machinedrum's Unreleased Contribution to 'Bleep:10'
- Words: Patric Fallon
With the arrival of the Bleep:10 compilation just under a month away, the online music retailer celebrating its 10th anniversary, Bleep, has been slowly unleashing some of the release's exclusive tracks to stream online. We've already heard Fuck Buttons' contribution, and we're now treated to the unreleased track arriving from prolific, multi-faceted producer Machinedrum, an expectedly drum-centric tune called "aeolia." The production falls somewhat in line with the artist born Travis Stewart's recent Vapor City LP, relying on the juxtaposition of stuttering, footwork-slanted beats with astral atmospheres and soulful samples. It's a fine example of what makes him a consistently interesting artist, and also of why we're looking forward to when the rest of Bleep:10 drops on May 5.
