MACHINEDRUM PRESENTS HUMAN ENERGY... LIVE!

Just like I did w/ my previous #TBT post, I'm gonna start jumping on THE WELL LA blog from time to time to drop some knowledge + photos + vids.  Enjoy these brain farts from a fun day/night/whatever.  Thanks for letting me hijack the blog again buds!

So, I walked down from my crib to the Echoplex in the 90026 to check out Machinedrum's brand spanking new LIVE show on November 3rd, 2016...

So... I just came back from The Well and told Alex that I had all this rad footage of the Machinedrum show from last week just chilling on my channel... and he asked me if I was down to post some of it on the blog for kids to vibe out to during the weekend?  Of course my reply was gonna be of course ;)  So, let's go on a mini-journey through Travis' new album shall we?  I mean for starter's... the homie, Jesse Boykins III, rolled through to lend his chops to "Celestial Levels" from Machinedrum's brand spanking new album, Human Energy complete w/ a brand new LIVE visual setup to match the new audio vibes... So, before I get into the rest of the rad set... I'm gonna go back down memory lane, as I tend to do...

Before we move forward... I gotta take you back...

So, yeah, I HAD to take you back to the day of September 20th, 2016, when I got hit up from the mates at Ninja Tune to roll through and lurk and provide them w/ some test footage of Machinedrum's new LIVE visual set that were being done by the other fantastic Layer 3 visual brothers... Timeboy & Strangeloop.  So, of course I rolled through and took a couple shots of the new setup b/c I was a fan + the dude w/ the cam ;) 

Travis aka Machinedrum... taking you down the rabbit hole...

So, cut to about a month and a half later, and I got a call from David at Ninja Tune being like, "do you wanna come maybe and check out the show at the Echoplex tonite for Machinedrum's new live show?" to which I of course replied, "I'm there." So, yeah, let's go and see some more of this tite shit b/c it's always nice to share my "random moments of access" with the public b/c I get it... we all fans ;) So, let's all take a look at the brand new album/visual set shall we?

Here that man go playing "Normal Baby Aura" to the visuals that fit the title... I definitely felt the warm energy of an infant and didn't feel like it was out of place at all... some would say normal...

I labeled this video as "Centered" b/c I took it from the center of the crowd.  I don't think that's the name of the track... but I wrote "Centered" b/c I was stoned probably when I uploaded this vid...

Back to Travis playing another new cut off of Human Energy... this one is really dope and it's called "Tell U"... I even Shazam'd it to make sure b/c I'm gonna be honest w/ you that I usually am there for the vibes and I have no clue what some names of some tracks are b/c they are too new haha... this was not the case tho ;)

And... before I put away the camera... I caught Machinedrum playing a brand new song...  I'm relieved b/c I scoured the internets trying to find the damn title for this song, but after many attempts, I should have just listened to Travis on the mic saying it was a new song... oh wellz...

Here's a slideshow of some cool photos I wanted to share from the set... Jus Cuz...

Anyhow, I'm super proud of the Ninja Tune x Machinedrum x Timeboy x Strangeloop buds for doing an amazing show and putting out tight shit that's not all EDM crap and for the thinkers...

Til next time...

Til next time...

Peace out homies.
