The idea of a footwork concept album might seem at odds with the stuttering functionality of its Chicago roots, but then Machinedrum, aka US-born Travis Stewart, has always used its 170bpm tempo as a template for more otherworldly experiments.

Categorise him at your peril

Try to categorise Dismantle at your peril. Like his name alludes, the Brighton-based producer has been taking apart the genre boundaries at the seams and engineering his own unique blends of bass-heavy influences — which range from jump-up drum & bass and bleeping Dutch house to Bugz In The Attic-esque breakbeat and classic reggae.
