Travis Stewart, better known by his moniker Machinedrum, shared his fourth single today, "Tell U," off his forthcoming album Human Energy. Reworking Toronto singer Rochelle Jordan's vocals, Stewart blends gritty, churning synth work with sugary pop melodies on "Tell U." Deliberate metallic synths cut through Jordan's high saccharine vocals like a scythe, as she sings, "I ain't gotta tell you / This is what you gotta do."


The North Carolina producer recently reunited with D∆WN for his last release and headlined Dirty Bird Campout 2016 this past summer. He starts his North American tour next month.
