VIDEOJAMZ #3 - Kuh-Lida + a peek behind the scenes Demo

Kuh-Lida: Music

This videojam has 2 Kuh-Lida songs on it, “Riding Shotgun In The Batmobile” and “Things I Have Done [iloveyouall]” from his album High Top Blazers. As you can see, I kind of set this one loose and watched what it came up with, which blew me away. Also, to get the process started, I had to fiddle with some stuff in my patch. I usually do this with touchOSC or with a separate monitor, but in keeping with Kuh-Lida’s Chicago roots, this was a quick and dirty jam.

High Adventure LP
2013-09-12

Kuh-Lida: Producer

~A big city story of the one thrilling moment in a man’s life that can only be called High Adventure~

This new collection of fuzzed-out breaks and radio drama collages from the back catalog of Stereocure co-founder Kuh-Lida (aka Myles Emmons) sometimes reads more like a sound walk through his own thrift store than a beat tape. Veiled behind layers of dust and tape hiss, the veteran producer presents us with a sound world that he has created out of found objects and hazy imagination, shattered bits of magnetic tape and broadcasted nostalgia. Directing our senses through a maze of swerves and spin-outs at every turn, the music somehow fits together like a jigsaw puzzle, or a vinyl record chopped into a hundred pieces and reassembled with paint and peanut butter. Through thickets of glitch and throbbing blotches of rhythm, this A/B tape release is an auditory adventure from start to finish.

~Wherever you are, look around you. Watch, but don’t live it: this thing we call High Adventure~

High Top Blazers LP
2013-02-19

Kuh-Lida: Producer

High Top Blazers is the fourth album by Kuh-Lida, the beatmaking moniker of Chicago’s Myles Emmons.

These pop-radio dramas are a tribute to my own fascinations with the often reckless limits we can push ourselves to in pursuit of nightlife and parties. Hopefully what doesn’t kill us will make us wiser. Pour some drinks, light up, and bxxgie dxwn.
