The footwork interpreter is finally releasing his collaborations with the late Chicago pioneer.

Machinedrum has unveiled the first track from Movin’ Forward, a collection of tracks made with DJ Rashad.

“Over the past few years I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with Rashad and even be remixed by him,” explained Travis Stewart. “The tracks were never completely finished and seemed impossible to finish after he passed. Eventually I mustered up enough courage to open the sessions and finish them. It is what Rashad would have wanted me to do.”

Alongside those collaborations are two exclusive unreleased Machinedrum tracks inspired by Rashad and the Teklife crew.

He added: “I called it Movin’ Forward because I know Rashad wants everyone he touched to keep pushing themselves and follow in his footsteps on the path he had been creating all these years. I’m proud to have known him, shared the stage with him and to have collaborated with him.”

The record is out now and can be purchased via Bandcamp with all proceeds going to Rashad’s family. Hear ‘Understand’ below, a collaboration between Machinedrum, Rashad and Nick Hook.
