Machinedrum remixes a Boards of Canada rarity

Travis Stewart upgrades a bootleg track from the beloved Warp duo.

Machinedrum has taken to Soundcloud to explain the genesis behind his latest edit, of an untitled, unreleased song that Boards of Canada played at the Warp 10 Birthday part in 2000. “It’s quite possibly one of my favorite things they have done and really is a shame it never came out,” says Steward.

“Since I am a huge nerd I decided to take this bootleg recording and re-produce it for fun,” he says of the production. “Using the recording I laid new drums over the existing drum patterns (almost 100% accurate to original), replayed some synth parts and the bassline. The only thing I didn’t try to re-create was the original vocoder parts and some random samples so I used the original bootleg recording for that.”
