I am K-Murdock
) and I be a music producer, audio engineer & self-proclaimed "sound samurai" ...who also moonlights as a radio host, gamer & otaku! I grew up during the "88-97" golden era of hip-hop in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.
and credit my late uncle, Melvin Lindsey
, with initially piquing my interest in music, however, it was my older cousins who helped me fall in love with Native Tongue
members A Tribe Called Quest
& De La Soul
; Even today, after 20 years, both groups are still my perennial favorites! Inspired by the samples ATCQ frontman Q-Tip
and producers like Dj Spinna
& J Dilla
(R.I.P.) were flipping in the 90s, I got serious about music and sound creation during my freshman year at Howard University
, where I majored in audio production. Now, 10 (plus) years AND lots of beats later, I have been able to establish a sound through my Neosonic Productions
The word "Neosonic" emanated in 2001 from the slogan: "the creation of a new (neo) sound (sonic) with each production", which I originally used to denote any music that I produced, but after learning the "business of music" firsthand over the years, I decided in 2010 to turn that personal slogan into my professional brand. Now Neosonic Productions serves not only as a banner for my production work, but also as a vehicle to release my various side & solo projects- including the albums of my critically acclaimed hip-hop group Panacea
& all of the music I create with popular nerdcore artist Random aka Mega Ran
