Emuh – Dysmorphia LP (Feral One Records) Out Now!

by the partae

Hey Emuh, It’s great to meet you ! How have you been lately?

I’ve been great, thank you. It’s very exciting to see this album come out and the reception so far has been amazing. Glad to finally put this release out into the world!

Congrats on your new release Dysmorphia on Feral One Records. What was your inspiration behind this LP?

I was inspired by The Gorillaz, Still Woozy, Ariana Grande, Charlie Puth, LCD Soundsystem, Radiohead, Walker & Royce, Claude VonStroke and Feral One label boss Longstocking. I wanted to create an album that combined the sounds of pop, house, techno, trap and experimental music – while incorporating my voice, musical sensibilities and aesthetic.

Dysmorphia is eclectic and covers a lot of ground, what are some of the influences that have shaped your musical taste and influenced you as a music producer?

Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of dancey pop and vocal music which greatly informed my album. There are so many songs lately that are devoid of originality and emotion – I wanted to make sure those boxes were checked off while still creating a piece that can still inspire and elevate those with less musical experience or specific musical taste.

How important is storytelling for you, and what were you aiming to communicate with this LP?

Each song tells its own story, from a day at Waterworld to a meditative stranding out at sea. I want to give the listener a window into my mind while allowing them the agency to relate and experience it in their own unique way.

What does your setup look like?

I use all digital instruments and Ableton 11 besides a couple hardware Pocket Operators (digital synths as well) and I record my voice with a Shure SM57 paired with a Grace Design 101 preamp. I also use an AKAI MPKmini to program all of my MIDI and do automation. My audio interface is an RME ADI-2 Pro and I use Neumann studio monitors.

What studio gear and/or instruments do you believe define your sound?

My voice and my meticulously crafted library of samples and instruments I’ve used throughout my career as EMUH.

Digital or Analog?

Whichever one helps you get the sound you’re after!

What has been your highlight gig this year?

Definitely my recent performance at Kremwerk in Seattle for the My Techno Weighs A Ton label showcase, I debuted several tracks from my album as well as performed the vocals live which was exhilarating and honestly a bit frightening.

DJ’ing or Music Production?

Music Production

Thanks a lot for taking the time to answer our questions, is there anything else you would like to mention before we go?

Thanks again for reaching out. Dysmorphia comes out this Saturday September 2nd and you should help support the release by purchasing a copy of the album on Beatport, listening on Spotify and reposting the tracks on SoundCloud.
