Machinedrum (a.k.a Travis Stewart) has dropped a new track, “1 2 B Needed” feat. Roses Gabor.

The cut, released yesterday, landed on Ninja Tune and is the US producer’s third release this year, after last year’s Human Energy LP which brought him critical acclaim.

“‘1 2 B Needed” continues the sonic discovery and evolution of the Human Energy sound,” Travis Explains. “It’s a “cute banger” meant to uplift and melt faces simultaneously.”

Following on from his last single “What Is This” ft Rosie Lowe, which took on a slower and sleeker tone than the previous “U Betta” single, “1 2 B Needed” feat. Roses Gabor picks up the pace. With his signature synthy chopped up 100 mph beats “1 2 B Needed” demonstrates what Travis does best: mix a blend of underground electronic and pop sensibilities.

“1 2 B Needed” feat. Roses Gabor is out now via Ninja Tune, and streaming in full above.
