Ninja Tune announced today that they have added Berlin-based bass boss Travis Stewart (aka Machinedrum) to their already bumper roster of artists.

Stewart has had a vintage few years with red-hot solo album Room(s) garnering near-universal praise and his work with Praveen Sharma as Sepalcure and Jimmy Edgar as JETS grabbing any stragglers, and this latest news should serve to take his well-chiseled sound even further.

He sealed the deal by appearing with his new Ninja family at the label’s SXSW showcase, and performed alongside Bonobo, The Bug and Toddla T in the first of what is likely to be many Ninja-affiliated appearances. The label assures us that there’s more info to follow, so let’s all hope that the Room(s) follow-up isn’t too far off.
