Huerco S. is someone that we’re predicting to be on tip of a lot people’s tongues by the end of next year. He’s a Kansas City based artist that’s nonchalant without being dismissive and excited at prospect of more people listening to and enjoying his music. In the last two years his name’s been associated with labels such as Wicked Bass, Opal Tapes, B. YRSLF Division and in a few months’ time it will be stamped on the sleeve of a Future Times record and Opal Tapes’s first 12-inch reissue. Possessing a real DIY attitude nothing is off limits to him and for the perfect example look no further than his feelings on audio quality. We had a chance to speak with him about his sampling techniques, audio artifacts, and cheesy nineties CDs. He represents his city (not quite as much as our favorite rappers, but it’s important to him) and by the end of our chat revealed just enough about himself – hopefully his music can answer any lingering questions. The proverbial bow of this package (interview) is his Truancy Volume, which is a manifestation of his eclectic tastes and indiscriminate lust for sonic diversity and brings all his remarks together. Prepare your minds and bodies for a 50-minute crash course in the musical stylings of Huerco S.
