As for future projects and possible collaborators, Machin has a long list of wish partners, but a couple stand out. "The standard answer is Jimmy Page," he says. "That's always good. On the plane I was listening to the first Wu Tang Clan album on the way over here. That album still kills me and I guess I can hear bits of the production technique that they had that I've tried to bite and steal, probably nowhere near as well as they have, but that record is as influential on me as a Bob Dylan record, you know. Working with RZA or somebody like that would be really interesting. So yeah, I'd be down with hooking up with the Wu collective."
