“What do you do when It’s So Cold In The D?….pull out the loop machine, hit record. . .and have fun” – Dwele
Hir-O, the self-proclaimed “Super Duper Music Producer Semi-Automatic Beat Machine,” is a mix of humbled confidence and organized eccentricity. His Detroit-rooted mixture of electronic music, soul and boom bamp has blossomed into an undefeated record in Michigan beat battles, and his instrumental album The Voyage Home (Download Here) closed 2010 as one of the year’s best. With placements for acclaimed Ann Arbor natives Tree City and Celsius Electronics, Lightheaded member Othello and various members of his BLAT! Pack crew under his belt, even more even more collaborations are in order for 2011. In a quirky, detailed interview with MichiganHipHop, Hir-O talks about the creative process behind The Voyage Home, clues readers into his future projects, and acknowledges the nunchucks that drape his neck during performances.
