Before Secret Wilderness, Jake Reid was working as Machine Drift after Screen Vinyl Image stopped touring. He has a number of releases on Bandcamp including live performances that were often one time improvisations.
Notable Machine Drift releases include:
Chester Hawkins and Machine Drift Live
Chester Hawkins (Blue Sausage Infant) collaborates with Jake Reid at the legendary DC DJ night We Fought The Big One.
A live recording from the long running Baltimore MT6 fest and a live recording of the “DCB” tape recorded at Rhizome. The DCB tape was a limited edition collaboration with District Candy Bowl and only performed live once.
Live At Rhizome
The second performance from Rhizome features a tri-amp setup. Two synths are droning through amps on both sides of the stage while the center amp handles sequences creating a wall of sound.
