Signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label, The M Machine is big-room EDM for the kids who dress in neon and festival-hop through the summer. While the San Francisco–based trio’s earlier work is exactly what you would expect from the new wave of dance artists — lots of peaks and few subtleties — their more recent output shows a lot of growth. “Just Like,” from last year’s EP of that name, is pop-and-lock funky, while “Don’t Speak” plays with moody, warehouse-friendly techno influences and “Over/Love” is a solid piece of synthpop. The M Machine is onto good things and now is the time to see them. Make sure you catch Zimmer as well. His chilled-out, house-inflected tracks and remixes are certainly good for the dance floor. Also playing: Manila Killa, Sam Hiller and Atherton.
