A good while after Brooklyn-based producer Travis Stewart (a.k.a. Machinedrum) released his Want to 1 2? album, a cut from that record, “Let It,” was treated to its own small release—complete with an instrumental, acapella, and remixes from the likes of Lazer Sword and The Glitch Mob’s edIT. Though not on the Let It EP (out now on Innovative Leisure), this exclusive version of Machinedrum’s track—remixed by the artist himself—is a perfect example of the sub-busting beat work and glimmering synth sounds found on that record. Stewart reformats his glitched-out original into another kind of bouncing club tune: a sleeker, deeper, and darker track better fit for a late-night comedown than peak-hour revelry. It’s that kind of versatility that “Let It” offers which makes the song so ripe for multiple versions, even from the original producer.
