Can someone answer for me why it has taken Jimmy Edgar and Travis Stewart aka Machinedrum this long to collaborate? The two have been friends for over 12 years for gods sake and are both among the vanguard of North American bass music. At least the name, timing and label for the release feels thorough. The Jets EP will be released on October 29 via long-standing Berghain party/collective/label Leisure System who have released tunes from Eprom and Barker. For now, stream “Lock Lock Key”, a stuttering bit of chipmunk funk, completed by Stewart’s syncopated rhythms.
