Ninja Tune signs Machinedrum

By | Published on Monday 18 March 2013


Ninja Tune has signed American producer/DJ Machinedrum to a four album deal, the first record from which should be released as early as this June. We know this because the producer, real name Travis Stewart, has announced the deal via Twitter a few times, writing in one: “Oh and by the way I’m signed to mother fucking Ninja Tune now ahhhhhhhhh”.

Ninja Tune chief Peter Quirke subsequently told Billboard: “He fits in particularly well [at Ninja] because he’s an experimental electronic artist and that’s one of our key principles. Not just that, he’s unmistakably precise and prolific – just a brilliant producer. I think we’ll see him producing records for all sorts of people, not just for us but for big stars and pop artists”.
