Vapor City is the first album released by Travis Stewart, p.k.a Machinedrum on Ninja Tune and his nineteenth release under the Machinedrum name overall. It was released on September 29, 2013.

The concept for Vapor City came about through a series of vivid, recurring dreams Stewart had about a fictional city. Each track on the album is meant to explore and define a different district or neighborhood within this world.

Soon after its release, an interactive website was launched allowing fans and subscribers to 'unlock' the various districts of Vapor City, granting them access to exclusive content and unheard music. – Wiki

“…Here the rhythms veer toward rolling drum and bass breaks, and the mood is a lot more relaxed. Drums underpin samples that loop and build and vary with purpose — see "Baby It's U," which Stewart distorts and smears into ever-more-lovelorn shapes. He makes them sound like songs, not just tracks — all the better to go with his own sung "U Still Lie," a slushy goth/New Wave ballad for the ages.” – Rolling Stone

“When you crank this album loud, it's not just the beats that rattle the system, though they're as crisply forceful as ever. It's the intricate musical subtleties Stewart weaves through them that blow your hair back.” – Pitchfork
