Machinedrum released his latest album, 'Vapor City', this year to widespread critical acclaim. It stormed in at number 3 in our Top 50 Albums of 2013 and the US-born, Berlin-based producer also scored well in our Top 100 Tunes, with lead single 'Gunshotta' hitting number 13.
By the artist's admission it's his biggest and boldest project to date. And he's not wrong. Crossing musical and visual platforms, the massive body of work includes a live show, an interactive website and series of original artworks detailing each district of 'Vapor City' as well as a ton of extra content in the form of mixes, remixes, original tracks and new EPs, all in addition to the LP.
But the 10 tracks that make up 'Vapor City' are just the tip of the iceberg, as Machinedrum recorded over 80 tunes in the process of creating the soundtrack to this imaginary place.
In turn, as each district is revealed (last month was Vapor City Metro), the highly prolific producer unleashes exclusive content only accessible via the Vapor City Citizen Program, a newsletter sign-up that can be entered below.
