Machinedrum have unveiled a sub-torturing take on The Glitch Mob‘s “Enter Formless,” the opening track to the group’s 2018 album, See Without Eyes. Machinedrum previously supplied remix magic on the electronic group’s 2011 Drink The Sea (Remixes Vol. 2) compilation, and the glitch house stalwart shows no fear this go around crafting a daring and experimental transformation for The Glitch Mob.
The original’s bold synth riffs boom-bap percussion still star in Machinedrum’s rework. The remix opens with the melody flanked gorgeously by acoustic guitars as a snare roll launches into the first drop, a transition that perfectly characterizes the take’s bi-polar sonic structure. Distorted subs swell and expand from behind crunchy breakbeat kicks, before the drop reaches a drum and bass-inspired boil. The guitars and spaced out synth melody return in a wash of echoes and ambiance, before song explodes again into a glitchy drop topped with searing pads. Just as the listener begins settling into the madness, the remix ends on a lone acoustic guitar plucking out the original’s melody to melancholic effect.
Machinedrum’s shape-shifting interpretation latches onto the bold and beautiful elements of the original and dials them up to 11 in their own solo moments, creating a constantly surprising and satisfying new production.

Gramatik fans are likely still digesting his poignant tribute to the late Aretha Franklin earlier this month – but before the soulful stylings of SB5 lands, the producer is changing gears with a joint track featuring recent REZZ collaborator Kotek. Named after the Russian blockchain titan of the same name, the single arrives on the artist’s own Lowtemp imprint. The collaborative effort incorporates some of the crispy electronic glitch of the beloved GRiZMATiK project, but with a dose of digital menace courtesy of Kotek’s signature sound.
The song’s brief intro, comprised of wailing electronic guitars and R&B keyboard arrangements, is familiar territory, but an ear-slapping snare and distorted sub bass soon bring the track into the electronic realm. The slinky syncopation evolves into a second chorus with a blatting horn section, before descending into a half-time beat that swaps blasts of Kotek distortion for Gramatik’s guitar stylings to close. According to Gramatik, the song’s distinct phases are no accident, providing some insight into the collaboration’s genesis via SoundCloud:
“Vitalik Buterin is a tribute to the founder of Ethereum and basically the sequel to Satoshi Nakamoto, except this time around, Kotek and I decided to make it an instrumetal journey. The song changes five times and keeps evolving beginning to end which is meant to symbolize the different stages of development and evolution of Ethereum and its ecosystem. We had so much fun making this tune and we sincerely hope that Vitalik likes it.”
