Kyle Murdock grew up in Silver Spring (Maryland) during the "88-97 golden era" of hip-hop. Inspired by the jazz and soul samples ATCQ front man Q-Tip and producers like DJ Premier and Pete Rock were flipping in the 90s, coupled with a longtime and still unexplained predilection for all things Eastern (specifically anime and videogames), he got into beat-making during his freshman year of college after purchasing an Alesis SR-16 drum machine and Gemini mixer. Ten years and a lot of beats later… he has been able to forge his NEOSONIC productions using an MPC 2000XL and pretty much anything he can sample from (records still being his first choice).
He has been producing hip-hop for the last 4 years as 1/2 of the tandem Panacea, and as a member of the band Restoring Poetry in Music (www.rpmband.com), but his production credits also range from an eclectic amalgam that dabbles in "neo-soul", jazz-funk, electronica and even progressive rock. Aside from his primary role as producer in the aforementioned groups, he also co-hosts the show Subsoniq (www.proghiphop.com) on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, which focuses on playing and promoting progressive hip-hop music.
