  • Build A Machine2 Singles

  • Build A Machine is a 3-piece Reggae/Rock/Hip Hop group originally from Boston, MA (currently based in Huntington Beach, CA), which heavily focuses on vocal harmony. They have played at The Vans Warped Tour, as well as opened for artists such as Passion Pit, Slick Rick, Steel Pulse, Rootz Underground, Fishbone, New Kingston, Tribal Seeds, and Fortunate Youth. Build a Machine was also the former backing of Angelo Moore of Fishbone’s solo project ‘Dr. Madd Vibe’. Recently, they have just recorded their debut EP, which was entirely produced and recorded by themselves in Joshua Tree, CA. The trio had traded the usual expensive studio experience for a short-term desert rental, which inspired and influenced them heavily. They then turned to Ryan Siegel of Los Stellarians (ft. SA Martinez of 311) who has worked with big names such as 311 and Glassjaw, to mix the record. Having just completed an east coast tour to promote their upcoming The Desert Sessions EP (featuring songs ranging from powerful and energetic, to psychedelic and laid back), BAM is happy to announce that The Desert Sessions will be released by the end of 2014. In the meantime, go download 2 different MP3’s from the group and tell your friends to…GO DOWNLOAD
