Machine Drift are the various electronic projects from J Reid. Jake was one half of the electronic shoegaze group Screen Vinyl Image (with his wife Kim) and also previously Alcian Blue and Skywave. He currently operates out of his studio The Ice Station in Virginia where he also does audio mastering. Last year he did a mix series including a curated mix for Theorizing The Web, these as well as other demos and sketches are available on Soundcloud.
