Music you should listen to: Machinedrum

It's pretty obvious why electronic music gets a bad rap. With the growing number of "push play" DJ's being caught in the act and the plethora of Traktor Pro downloads across the internet, it's easy to see why most folks don't see electronic music as a legitimate art.

Fortunately, groups like Machinedrum exist. These guys fuse live with digital in a way that is getting harder and harder to find. The only people that are doing it on this level are James Holden and Nicolas Jaar (not bad company at all).

If you have 11 minutes to spare, check this out and marvel at some guys creating music that is not only unique, but also breaking stereotypes and saving an art that is in the process of being heavily saturated.
