The M Machine released their new EP, Metropolis Pt. I today, after it’s premier on Rolling Stone. After 23k Facebook “Likes” and summer gigs at EDC and Electric Zoo, little was still known about the three man DJ group. Now, after months of silence the San Francisco trio has unveiled the mystery behind their sound. The first half of their debut album contains six tracks oozing with original sound. Bridging genres, the M Machine incorporates Electronica, Electro House and even Indie influenced dance elements that together create complex atmospheres, beautiful melodies and amazing synth riffs. Not only has their sound created a huge buzz in electronic music, but it just happened to catch Skrillex’s attention. Metropolis Pt. I was released on OWSLA Records. 

“The beautiful part of electronic music right now is that it’s literally infinite,” Coenen explains. “We write songs just like any other indie band or rock band would, but every instrument is powerful and big because it’s all electronic. You have the best of both worlds – the heaviness of dance music, but you then have the soul of vocal driven music.”

Since the begining The M Machines intentions have all been visual. They  wanted to write an album  conceptual and immense with imagery. Metropolis is a concept album. Each song is a different chapter in the story of dystopian city. With this release, The M Machine looks to perfect the union between Man and Machine.

“Sonically, the driving bass of  ‘Immigrants’ and dubstep dancefloor killer ‘Shadow In The Rose Garden’ aggressively assert the raw power of electronic music, while ‘A King Alone’ and ‘Faces’ showcase the band’s human touch: vocal-driven synth-pop at its finest. Replete with massive string arrangements, ‘Deep Search’ and ‘Black’ further demonstrate the trio’s production prowess, yet reveal a refreshing emphasis on musicality, further highlighting the cinematic feeling that has become one of the band’s trademarks”.
