Shmuck the Loyal is an experimental music producer based out of Nashville, TN. The up and coming trap producer is on a roll and has a hard hitting style. His idealistic approach to production is driven by the pursuance of maximalism and a deeper, more emotive side of electronica. After a stint of exclusively focusing on working for artists such as Blackbear, Doja Cat, Mikky Ekko and others, Shmuck developed a finely tuned project that defines his most realized creative self. His new four-track EPHyperbade is out now on a upcoming imprint called softcore and it's a dope piece of work. The stand out track for me has to be “Kyra” but overall the full project sounds great. Read a quote from Shmuck the Loyal below and under that stream his new Hyperbade EP. Enjoy!
“I love the word “hyper” I love how the word looks, sounds and the meaning of it. The word itself has been used in a handful of my artistic endeavors and I knew early in the production process of the EP that it embodied the sound and feeling of the project. In its infancy, the project was slated as “Hyper Human” but I failed to develop a means of proper depiction. “Extremely human” rather than “Extreme human” i.e. I settled on hypervade because I loved the overlap of the words and how it felt like something new. Hypervade isn’t about a message so much as a feeling. I’m in the pursuance of creating music that is emotive, visceral and rattles your core. It is intended to enhance whatever emotion is relevant to your life at the time of listening. If I were to pick a theme, it would be “empowering”. – Shmuck the Loyal
