In what's shaping up to be an annual tradition, Ben Sims (pictured above) and Kirk Degiorgio are set to return to Machine imprint—the label which the pair co-founded as a continuation of their London-based parties by the same name—once again with the Machine 03 EP. The release finds the veteran producers each contributing two original cuts to the effort. On the a-side, Sims (who recently announced the conclusion of his long-running Theory imprint) delivers his signature blend of driving techno and acid-led stomp, while on the flip, Degiorgio offers two slow burners that have reportedly been in heavy rotation since last year.
Machine 03 is slated for a vinyl release on August 4 with a digital release to follow, and while no previews are available as of yet, the record's artwork and tracklist have been included below. Sims' exclusive XLR8R podcast is also still up for grabs, and can be found here.
