Machinedrum links up with Rosie Lowe for energetic new single, What Is This

The US producer digs further into his Human Energy sound for his second single of 2017.

On his experimental, 2016 record Human Energy, US producer Machinedrum became one of our favourite left-field electronic acts, a title further solidified with April's stand-alone single U Betta. In our interview with the producer last year, Machinedrum teased a round of upcoming, exciting collaborations, and now, the first of these has arrived with Rosie Lowe in the form of What Is ThisWhat Is This sees Machinedrum continue his synth-dominated Human Energy sound, stripping things back slightly and allowing Rosie Lowe's soft vocals to glide above a chiming, arpeggiated synth line in the single's expansive verses. The track does boast that natural Machinedrum energy in its chorus, where that experimental Human Energy charm manages to sneak through in the stabbing melody and crisp percussion claps, but overall What Is This is a far more vocal-led track that highlights Rosie Lowe's vocals. "Rosie and I originally wrote this tune a few years ago in a London studio," says the producer in a message accompanying the track's release. "It was originally quite sombre and slow moving, a song about learning to trust the ones you love and to let go of jealousy. It also deals with obsession and all the confusing emotions you get when you first fall in love." Listen to the track below:
