Today we are in conversation with Travis Stewart aka Machinedrum.
Travis debuted his Machinedrum Moniker in 2001 when he was only 18 years old and has consistently pushed creative boundaries with his music for the last 2 decades.
With releases on forward-thinking, innovative labels such as Ninja Tune, Plant Mu, Lucky Me and Mercury KX, his latest album Elysian under his moniker T-Stewart once again showcased his versatility as a musician and producer.
This absolutely stunning ambient album explores the concept of finding heaven on earth through nature and music.
So I was super excited to speak to Travis and get a glimpse into how he stimulates his creative thinking and consistently executes to such a high level.
