Where: Brooklyn, NY
Travis Stewart (a.k.a. Machinedrum) and Praveen Sharma have been friends for years; the duo runs the Cassette NYC parties and the online community mix archive Percussion Lab, but only began collaborating on music in September of 2009. Bored with their solo projects, they threw out past blueprints and delved into '90s house, the skittering sounds of 2-step, and the sexier, more soulful and melodic side of UK bass music. The Hotlfush label—home to like-minded acts such as Mount Kimbie and Scuba—seems like the perfect place for Sepalcure's talents, and released the pair's debut EP, Love Pressure, earlier this year.
