about

Electronic music's Renaissance man Travis Stewart, better known as Machinedrum, is prepping for his biggest and boldest release to date with famed label Ninja Tune, Vapor City, the first full-length offering since his critically-heralded Room(s) in 2011. Between now and then, his output has been an unrelenting stream of versatility with skillful releases on LuckyMe (SXLND), Hotflush with 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 always one step ahead of the bunch with fans and music critics eargerly awaiting his next vision.

With Vapor City, his first official release on Ninja Tune coming out September 23 - a new signing that Stewart announced with Billboard last month and christened at his surprise performance at SXSW for the label's showcase - the man of many faces went back to the drawing board armed with inspirations sprouting deeper from within his psyche. Based on recurring dreams he has had for years about a metropolis known as Vapor City and which have become so vivid that Stewart can describe the place in detail district by district, he has finally crafted a fully-formed soundscape which doubles as a map into this imaginary universe.

For the the time being, the topography remains a mystery but the road toVapor City begins now with the Eyesdontlie single representing Stewart's foray into the first district, an entry pathway into Travis Stewart's sprawling imaginary universe.

"Vapor City is an album inspired by a dream city" explains Stewart. "It's become such a recurring dream of mine throughout the past few years that I began creating music to it, a collection of different songs each representing different districts in the city. Eyesdontlie represents the first district, welcome to Vapor City."
