The M Machine are in an awkward position for a new group of producers looking to break into the mainstream. On the one hand, they have landed themselves on Skrillex’s label OWSLA, which would normally benefit any fledging newcomer. But being stuck behind all the other, more successful names on the label has left them out in the dark. Yet with this new EP ‘Metropolis pt. II’, it seems The M Machine could become a household name sooner than expected.
Not really letting themselves get bogged down with one particular style, The M Machine experiment with a spectrum of electronic styles with glorious and unique ability. Opening track ‘The Palace’ is an explosion of beats and bass, whereas ‘Tiny Anthem’ is far more lo-fi and gives the group a far more pop sound. But just when you think you’ve sussed them out, the EP erupts once again into a selection of techno and electro bangers that bring this riotous EP to a close.
It’s clear that The M Machine are far beyond the capabilities that most of today’s bigger names, and this new EP is a fantastic selection of inspired gems that would get any dancefloor begging for more.
