Born Travis Stewart on March 4th 1982, Machinedrum’s debut album, Now You Know, was released in 2001 on the Miami-based Merck Records and gained worldwide attention and praise from musicians, fans and critics. Having a strong background in both acoustic and electronic instrumentation, he dances between those elements on all his releases. 2010 saw Machinedum re-surface in a major way. His newest side project Sepalcure, a duo with Praveen Sharma, became one of the intriguing names in the post-dubstep and UK funky scene. In the past year, Machinedrum has had two albums out: the critically-acclaimed Room(s) LP, and a self-titled LP from Sepalcure that anchored the duo as true tastemakers of electronica.
