Inspired by a background in classical percussion and an obsession with synthesizers, Jeremy Malvin creates music under the name Chrome Sparks. Jeremy grew up in Pittsburgh, then went to music school at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Two years later, he left school and went on extensive tours as the drummer for Stepdad, Miniature Tigers, and Rich Aucoin. Jeremy currently resides in Brooklyn, where he spends his time working on music in his bedroom, often leaving it to play DJ sets. Although Jeremy works on the recordings alone and has not done many live performances, the Chrome Sparks live realization has had many different incarnations, ranging from a one man show to an eight piece band. Currently, Jeremy does live performances with two dear friends.
North Carolina-born artist Travis Stewart AKA Machinedrum has produced and composed over a dozen albums under various aliases since his first independent release in 1999. Covering an astonishing variety of styles through his solo work and with collaborative projects Sepalcure, JETS and Dream Continuum, Travis delivers his signature on every thing he touches; from his 2013 ‘Vapor City’ LP for Ninja Tune, to his production work for the likes of Azealia Banks, Jamie Liddell and Jesse Boykins II, which has made him widely recognised as a producer’s producer, a pioneer of many styles, and a master of his craft.
