Rustie Rides Out With Machinedrum’s ‘Back Seat Ho’

Machinedrum - Back Seat Ho (Rustie Remix)

Last month we were introduced to Machinedrum’s Back Seat Ho, one of the many motley characters occupying the Fenris District of the ambitious producer’s sprawling “dreamscape” known as Vapor City. This week, we’re treated to a new perspective on this borough with a ratchet remix from Rustie (pictured).

Where Machinedrum gently and patiently imbues the titular character with layer after layer of synthesized pathos in his original mix, Rustie prefers to keep her out partying ’til last call, the bass kicking and the tension rising with each passing moment until the increasingly disorienting synth backdrop finally fades out into a drunken stupor in the track’s final seconds.

Both mixes of Back Seat Ho come from Machinedrum’s Fenris District EP, out March 25 on iTunes via Ninja Tune.
