"Electronic music’s Renaissance man Travis Stewart, better known as Machinedrum, returns with his definitive new album ‘A View of U’, featuring an incredible cast of collaborators. To add to the celebrations, Ninja Tune present his critically acclaimed 2013 album ‘Vapor City’ as a special edition gold vinyl double LP housed in a 5mm spined sleeve with black paper inners and artwork by Dom Flannigan and Eclair Fifi. Digital download code included. Conceptually based on recurring dreams he has had for years about a metropolis, with ‘Vapor City’ Stewart has crafted a fully formed soundscape which doubles as a map into this imaginary universe. “‘Vapor City’ is an album inspired by a dream city,” explains Stewart. “A collection of different songs each representing different districts in the city.” Stewart is a rarity in dance music. Aside from his chameleon-like ability to skip - apparently effortlessly - between tempos and styles, he has earned the respect and admiration of his peers and fans alike for his consistently progressive approach to electronic music. Machinedrum’s output is an unrelenting stream of versatility, with skilful releases on LuckyMe (SXLND), Hotflush (with the beloved Sepalcure) and the dancefloor blitzkrieg known as JETS - his most recent partnership with frequent collaborator Jimmy Edgar - among other releases, collaborations and remixes that have kept him one step ahead of the bunch, with fans and music critics eagerly awaiting his next vision."
