Almost a year ago, the world suddenly lost DJ Rashad. He's since been honored by Teklife and Hyperdub with a compilation album and now the late producer will receive another tribute at the hands of Machinedrum's Travis Stewart. Movin' Forward will be a collection of previously unheard collaborations between the two artists, as well as unreleased tracks from Stewart and Teklife that are inspired by Rashad. Stewart has shared one of them, "Understand" (below), which also features Nick Hook, along with the note about their joint songs. "The tracks were never completely finished and seemed impossible to finish after he passed," Stewart wrote. "Eventually I mustered up enough courage to open the sessions and finish them. It is what Rashad would have wanted me to do." The album is due April 24 and 100% of the proceeds will go towards Rashad's family.
