A TRIBUTE TO DJ RASHAD by MACHINEDRUM // electronic
A WORD via TRAVIS STEWART //
"DJ Rashad was, is and will forever be a legend. Not only was he a Footwork and Juke pioneer but also one of the hardest working DJs and producers I've ever met. The dude really never stopped working. He was either globetrotting and spreading the sound of Chicago around the world or in the lab pushing himself to expand his sound further and further. On April 26 2014 the world lost one of the most inspiring and talented artists of our time. His spirit moves through Teklife, the dancers, his friends and everyone he has touched or influenced.
Over the past few years I've been lucky enough to collaborate with Rashad and even be remixed by him. The tracks were never completely finished and seemed impossible to finish after he passed. Eventually I mustered up enough courage to open the sessions and finish them. It is what Rashad would have wanted me to do.
"Movin' Forward" is a collection of those collaborations plus two exclusive unreleased Machinedrum tracks that were heavily inspired by Rashad and the Teklife crew. I called it "Movin' Forward" because I know Rashad wants everyone he touched to keep pushing themselves and follow in his footsteps on the path he had been creating all these years. I'm proud to have known him, shared the stage with him and to have collaborated with him. May his sound and spirit continue to inspire and spread through everyones speakers! Teklife to tha next life!!
100% of the proceeds will go to his family and estate. R.I.P. DJ RASHAD" // PRESS*PLAY >>

"DEEP JUPITER" (SHIGETO REMIX) from new EP
'DANCING DRUMS' by PAUL CHIN // experimental | downtempo | electronic
A WORD via PAUL CHIN //
"Driven by a love of polyrhythms, producer/designer Paul Chin has fine-tuned his vulnerable approach to storytelling through beats, vividly illustrated across the electronic landscape of his new EP Dancing Drums. The young Toronto-based artist's classical and jazz training, combined with intricate attention to detail in his drum programming, has helped evolve his sound into a rich, reverberating blend of moodiness and texture.
The undulating Dancing Drums EP layers frenzied anthems like "War Drums" alongside chilled, expansive tracks such as "Home" and "Deep Jupiter", which is complemented by a penetrating remix by like-minded contemporary and rhythmic mastermind Shigeto. These instrumental explorations are wonderfully offset by the hymnic vocals of Gillian Mapp on "Shaman Chant", rounding out the undulating, timeless release." // PRESS*PLAY>>
