Born Travis Stewart on March 4, 1982, Machinedrum has produced and composed several albums under various aliases since his first independent release in 1999.

His debut Now You Know, was released in 2001 on the influential Miami-based Merck Records under the name Syndrone and gained worldwide attention and praise from musicians, fans and critics in the IDM scene. It was heralded as the "standard to which the next wave of imitators aspires" by Pitchfork.com

Having a strong background in both acoustic and electronic instrumentation, he dances between those elements on all his releases. This can be heard in the field recording and vintage synth laden Urban Biology to his seminal production and mixing of the This Charming Mixtape with MC Theophilus London. His critically acclaimed 2009 album Want To 1 2? was another showcase of his most recent production.

In 2010, Machinedrum released his Many Faces EP on Scottish label LuckyMe. Under the name Sepalcure, he’s also released the Love Pressure EP and Fleur EP on Hotflush with friend and collaborator Praveen Sharma- a sound they describe as "an exploration of chopped up 90s diva house acapellas and wooden sounding snares reminiscent of UK funky and dubstep". He also saw the EP single release of Let It, one of the standout songs from his 2009 Want To 1 2 album, with upstart label Innovative Leisure. He also wrote the song Outside The Lines with Praveen Sharma and recorded it under the name Sepalcure featuring Angelica Bess for the 2010 film Black Swan, though it is not featured on the official soundtrack to the film. « hide
