Quick catch-up: Machinedrum

We chat wellbeing, progression, and non-stop touring around the release of Travis Stewart's head-nodding epic, 'Human Energy'.

Ahead of the release of his 'Human Energy' LP on Ninja Tune last week, we sat down with Machinedrum (aka Travis Stewart) to discuss wellbeing, musical progression, never-ending tours and his new life in Los Angeles. 

A thoroughly cute album that darts between animated club-charged R&B inspired soundscapes and sugar-sweet pitched up vocals – 'Human Energy' is an undeniably head-nodding and mind-expanding epic that sees the North Carolina native collaborate with the likes of Jesse Boykins III, D∆WN, Rochelle Jordan (who appeared on the 'Folding Time' LP of Machinedrum's side project with Braille, Sepalcure) and more.

The interview was filmed and edited by Undine Markus, with thanks to Soundcrash and Sonos Studios for the use of their spaces.

'Human Energy' is out now on Ninja Tune (buy/stream). Watch more video interviews like this on our YouTube playlist.
