Irrepressibly linked to Astro Nautico, the Brooklyn-based label/blog/party collective co-founded in 2009 by Kuhn along with Obey City and Paul Jones, his initial output came in the form of a series of self-released free EPs including ‘Quiet Nights EP’ (featuring reworks from the likes of Young Montana?, Obey City, InfinitiRock (RAJA), and others) and ‘Spacemusik EP.’
Now ‘Slime Beach EP’ is the first of a series of EPs from Kuhn leading towards a full length for Civil Music, home to Starkey, Reso, Drums of Death, Débruit, Om Unit, Darling Farah and more.
Originally a drummer, Kuhn identifies his early influences in the hyper-rhythmic post-rave experimentalism of Warp Records c.2000, which in turn gave way to a fascination with jungle, dark garage, American hip-hop and the subsequent emergence of dubstep and its many divergences.
Today the result is a melting pot of styles in the tradition of wildcard electronic artists such as Luke Vibert, Daedelus, Chris Clark, Squarepusher, and Machinedrum to name a select few.
Kuhn is, in addition, a talented visual artist. Currently focused on the defunct VHS format, Kuhn himself designed the sleeve artwork for ‘Slime Beach EP,’ and his blog (www.billabronx.tumblr.com) features more animated gifs and web art.
Importantly, his website www.kuhnmusic.com currently exhibits a dazzling 10min animated background flux soundtracked by a mixtape containing over 15 exclusive original tracks.
