North Carolina-born artist Travis Stewart, known as Machinedrum, occupies a unique place in US electronic music. A pioneer and a populariser, Stewart brings together coasts and continents in projects which are both conceptual and heartfelt, clever and banging. He has produced and composed over a dozen albums under various aliases since his first independent release in 1999. Covering an astonishing variety of styles, through solo Machinedrum work and with collaborative projects, Stewart has established himself as electronic music's true Renaissance man.
His debut as Machinedrum, Now You Know, was released in 2001 on Merck Records and gained worldwide attention and praise from musicians, fans and critics. A number of LPs and Eps then followed, including his boldest release, the full-length LP Vapor City on Ninja Tune, a conceptual universe which included an interactive website, digital citizenship programme for fans, and an art exhibit in NYC that launched with the album.
