Sex Machine, a cover version of the track by Sly and the Family Stone, was streamed as an instrumental rehearsal during 3rdEye TV Show # 9 in 2013. The track first appeared on their 1969 album Stand!, and was written by Sylvester "Sly Stone" Stewart.

The version streamed was a rehearsal recorded in early July 2013, at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. No studio version is believed to exist. The track is not to be confused with Grand Central’s song Machine (co-written and performed by Prince), which in its earliest stage was also referred to as Sex Machine, or James Brown’s Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine, both of which receive separate song entries.
