Cat.This album is heavily underrated. I probably listened more to this one than to Vapor City. Reply Notify me Helpful.

Though he's dabbled in hip-hop, IDM, and house, Machinedrum hasn't really switched up his sound since he discovered Chicago's fertile juke and footwork scene. Room(s) from 2011 was the first LP to fully manifest the style that has.

Endless <3 Electronic music's Renaissance man Travis Stewart, better known as Machinedrum, brings his Vapor City project to a close with this final chapter in the sprawling epic – Vapor City Archives. Cody Galluccio Machinedrum has always had a great track record, and this mix of songs is solid. While there are a few key listens, the opening track is really the standout of the bunch. F. David Machinedrum's inspiration is seemingly inexhaustible. Vapor City Archives is another great album by a great mind.

Vapor City Archives brings an end to a project that began in September 2013 with the release of Vapor City, an album inspired by Travis Stewart's recurring dream of an imaginary metropolis. The concept has been evident in Stewart's musical endeavours since-this includes his RA Podcast, which the producer said "represents the Njord District of Vapor City. As Juno Plus report, Vapor City Archives arrives with artwork from LuckyMe pair Dom Flanagan and Eclair Fifi. ZOOSPA, out in May, features Dawn Richard, Mykki Blanco, Rochelle Jordan and more. Brunch announces eight city-wide shows in Barcelona.

Machinedrum will call an end to his Vapor City project with the release of the Vapor City Archives, a ten-track album to arrive via Ninja Tune in November. The veteran producer released his Vapor City LP last year, with the album reportedly inspired by a metropolis of the same name which Travis Stewart has visited in a series of life-long recurring dreams. Vapor City experimented with tropes of hip-hop, jungle and footwork as well as displaying the IDM influences that date back to his first record released in 2001

Vapor City Archives is the concluding element. The title's third word is a bit misleading. This isn't merely a collection of scraps, but another succinct, deliberately sequenced set - one that is almost on the level of the parent release.

It takes a few notable risks in composition and rhythmic style, but as is evident from the title, this isn't the new Machinedrum album. 70. Though it feels relatively safe stylistically, Archives is a very much a welcome closer to Stewart's Vapor City vision.
