“The whole album is an exploration of how we can find inner peace through nature,” –tstewart
Elysian Park is a slice of unaffected paradise found in downtown Los Angeles. Home to countless birds and (what feels like) infinite layers of greenery, the park plays the role of muse for tstewart’s 16track album, elysian. With each track named after his favourite nooks of the Elysian, tstewart likens his crescendos to the grand, never-ending steps found just before the park. As the new project from Machinedrum, the artist behind Kane Train and prominent A$AP Ferg Star remix, tstewart has signed to Mercury KX with a diverse, piano-led sound that juxtaposes his previous glitchy, pop-fused work .
“Elysian literally translates to ‘heaven for heroes’. I’m not religious. To me, the idea of heaven is an inner-peace you seek while alive. I try to find moments in my life where I connect with that feeling and one of the easiest ways is exploring nature.”-tstewart
