Machinedrum Pays Tribute To DJ Rashad



Ultramajic boss Machinedrum has revealed details of a new benefit EP for the late, great DJ Rashad.

Titled Movin’ Forward, the release features a number of appearances from the Rashad himself with but as an collaborator (with frequent production partner DJ Spinn as well as Machinedrum and Nick Hook) and remixer with a further cuts being supplied Machinedrum for the most moving of tributes.

Available to buy now over EP over at Machinedrum’s Bandcamp page with all proceeds going to Rashad’s estate you can check out the release alongside a letter from the New Yorker to the Teklife legend below.

“Over the past few years I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with Rashad and even be remixed by him. 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.

“Movin’ Forward” is a collection of those collaborations plus two exclusive unreleased Machinedrum tracks that were heavily inspired by Rashad and the Teklife crew. 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. May his sound and spirit continue to inspire and spread through everyones speakers! Teklife to tha next life!!

100% of the proceeds will go to his family and estate.
