Machine Girl is a New York-based producer of quite dazzling originality.
Equally at home in the overwhelming tempos of footwork and the dazzling gloss of slick chart pop, her startling productions occupy an almost entirely unique space.
New album 'Gemini' is out now, and it's a dazzling release which seems to refract a thousand different influences through her crystalline gaze. A product of the internet era, Machine Girl's output has a dizzying sense of ADHD, a lust for fresh ideas and new sounds.
Invited to craft a mix for Clash, the producer responded with typical imagination. Here's an intro...
I didn't have time to make a mix so instead here's this weird shit I found on a cassette in a puddle outside of my apartment. Also there was a note inside that I transcribed:
TO: MACHINE GIRL
THIS IS ME, MACHINE GIRL, aka YOU, MACHINE GIRL, FROM ONE OF INFINITE ALTERNATE UNIVERSES. I CANNOT TELL YOU SPECIFICALLY WHICH UNIVERSE I COME FROM OR ELSE IT WOULD PUT YOU AND ALL OF THE REALITY YOU EXIST IN, IN DANGER. I AM PASSING A CASSETTE TAPE ONTO YOU THAT WAS PASSED ONTO ME NOT LONG AGO. IT HAS *VERY* IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON IT. THINGS THAT NO ONE CAN HEAR. YOU MUST NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID, WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, SHARE THIS MUSIC WITH ANYONE. IT IS VITAL TO THE SAFETY AND WELL BEING OF THE SUPREME UNIVERSAL ORDER THAT NO ONE OUTSIDE OF YOU, MACHINE GIRL, HEAR THIS TAPE. DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME? IF ANYONE ELSE HEARS WHAT ON THIS TAPE, EVERYTHING WILL CEASE TO EXIST.
I, MACHINE GIRL, WILL BE SENDING YOU, MACHINE GIRL, A FULL TRACKLIST VERY SOON.
THANK YOU FOR READING ALL OF THIS CAREFULLY
