Machinedrum vs. Salva

Machinedrum's biggest coup as a producer recently might be the appearance of blog-bait rapper/R&B singer Azealia Banks on a couple of his tracks—the upbeat, Aaliyah-sampling R&B rework "SXLND," re-dubbed "NEEDSUMLUV," and the hyper-active "Fantastix," which Banks raps over to create "Aquababe." Even without Banks, these are solid tracks, displaying just a bit of Machinedrum's breadth as an electronic producer, which also includes his being one-half of tasteful but still bass-punching dubstep duo Sepalcure. Tonight, Machinedrum's Travis Stewart teams up with like-minded LA-based artist Salva to headline a night of low-end delights, with local support from Bellingham's Cedaa. With Jamison Just.
