North Carolina-born artist Travis Stewart AKA Machinedrum has produced and composed over a dozen albums under various aliases since his first independent release in 1999. Covering an astonishing variety of styles through his solo work and with collaborative projects Sepalcure, JETS and Dream Continuum, Travis delivers his signature on every thing he touches; from his 2013 ‘Vapor City’ LP for Ninja Tune, to his production work for the likes of Azealia Banks, Jamie Liddell and Jesse Boykins II, which has made him widely recognised as a producer’s producer, a pioneer of many styles, and a master of his craft.

Daktyl uses his multi-instrumentalist talents and diverse musical background to make insane beat driven grooves of a future bass sound which completely disregards the confines of a single genre.

After a 32 date tour of the US and Canada with Slow Magic in 2014, Daktyl released an 11 track album on L.A. based label Mad Decent, making him one of the only British artists on their roster. The album, Cyclical was released on the 21st of April 2015 and reached #14 in the US Electronic iTunes chart. Following the release of Cyclical Daktyl was invited to play shows all over the world, including major festivals such as Hard Summer, The Mad Decent Block Party, Capitol Hill Block Party, What The Festival and more.

Daktyl has been featured on Billboard, Noisey, Thump, Vice, TheSoundYouNeed, Do Androids Dance, Rinse FM, EDM.com , and many more. More recently he was given a coveted Artists To Watch title in Rolling stone magazine and was Zane Lowes Next Hype with his track Forgettable. He has also had remixes on Columbia Records, and has recently been invited to do guest mixes on BBC Radio 1 for Todla T, DJ Target and Diplo.


KUČKA official site | KUČKA on Facebook | KUČKA on Twitter | KUČKA on Instagram | KUČKA on Bandcamp | KUČKA on Soundcloud

KUČKA is the avant-electronic project of producer/vocalist Laura Jane Lowther, who records and produces all of the music from found sounds and analog synths from her bedroom studio in Perth.

After being sampled by the New York Rapper A$AP Rocky, being named in the top five under-the-radar Australian bands by The Guardian, and securing a slot on stage at Laneway Festival, 2013 was a huge year for KUČKA. Laura’s vocal abilities have also been recognised internationally as after initially sampling her track “I” for A$AP Rocky’s hit single Long Live A$AP, Rocky asked Laura to sing backing vocals on both Long Live A$AP and also Fashion Killa. Both of these tracks appear on his debut album, which charted at No 1 on the Us Billboard Charts.

In April, Lowther and her live band (consisting of Jake Steele on Synths, Katie Campbell on live electronic beats and Rosie Taylor on percussion) toured to France to perform at the Quartz Electronic Music Awards (held annually in Paris), as well as headlining an event as part of Technopol’s celebration of Electronic Music.

2012 saw the release of KUČKA‘s self-titled EP on Wood & Wire with one of the tracks Polly(serialkillersundays) winning a WAM Song of the Year Award in the experimental category. KUČKA also colloaborated with accomplished filmmaker Julia Ngeow to create an unusually surreal – anime inspired filmclip for the track Rewind. Just released is another collaboration between KUČKA and Ngeow for the brand new track Phantasy, filmed with a $400 budget and with just four days of pre-production, the clip is a testament to the creativity and ingenuity of KUČKA and her collaborators.
