(WKND06) EARMILK Presents: Weekend Selector – Myrryrs
Nashville visionary Myrryrs is on deck this week, foreseeing what the waves of radio will look like by hugging bass with top 40 hip hop. An inevitable matchup between two genres that have continually tipped the hat whenever they run into each other. The tape can be summed up by the kick off, Sound Pellegrino meets Young Money, cheeky lyrical verses sprawled on top of avant-garde sounds. Building on past works and an ASAP Rocky bootleg the mix capsizes at the peak with "Fantom Doze" a Southern hip hop intoxicant dosed in garage melodrama and soon to be released under his name on the rousing label Body High records.
In the end Myrryrs finally gives in, playing hits right off the radio from Rick Ross and Kirko Bangz but leaving on a crazed note with a Sinjin Hawke & Lucid collaboration that samples Missy Elliot to the point of lunacy. Each minute showcases genre cross overs done right, and with the smooth hands of our weekend selector Myrryrs points out that the selfishness and admiration of stumbling beats and lyrical egos are one in the same. Tracklist and interview where we talk about upcoming projects and pop radio on the jump.
EARMILK: Ghetto bass future garage from Nashville Tennessee, how does that come to be? Are you involved in anything that comes out of your local music scene?
Myrryrs: Nashville is my physical jump off, but i'm not associated with any local happenings. Projects are brewing though, but it's too early to talk about them seriously. And to answer your first question, 'the internet'.
EM: Listening to this tape it's obvious that you have a lot of hip hop influences, have you ever considered making rap beats in the past or future?
M: I could name a dozen 90s influences that we all have to be honest. As far as rap goes, I listen to a lot of top 40 and keep it locked to datspliff. Pop radio is getting weirder and it's a beautiful thing. There's a good chance you'll be seeing a Myrryrs produced mixtape this year but that's all I'm saying at the moment.
EM: With all the small labels surrounding your sound, which ones do you choose to follow?
M: I try not to follow anyone and keep my ears open to everything. I'm always interested to see what Sound Pellegrino, Night Slugs, Pelican Fly, B.YRLSF, Clek Clek Boom, Silverback & Soukouch Ethnik do this year. Special shout out to my Body High fam. I'm really excited for the next line of releases, including my own.
EM: I see that you threw your upcoming Body High release in the tracklist. Can you share some info on the label, when it will be coming out and possible remixes?
M: Body High is the brainchild of Jerome (of LOL Boys) & Samo Soundboy. In their words "The Body High aesthetic is just raw,
uncompromising club music. The visual imagery is built to reflect that, up-front/no gimmicks." No official date on the release yet, I'm still in the final stages of wrapping it up, but expect it in the next 2-3 months. No remixes on this one, 5 originals.
EM: Name me some of your favourite artists or friends you'd love to collaborate with sometime in the future. Are there any current artists in the scene that excite you?
M: A few happening right now, but still trying to flesh them out. I never kiss & tell.
