Track Record: Myronik


In this installment of Track Record we chat to Liam Myers AKA Myronik, an up and coming ‘future beats’ producer who sings, samples and remixes. Here he shares the records that inspire his work from the ambiance of Air to the boisterous beats of Bonobo. Photos by Colm Moore.

Caribou – The Milk of Human Kindness

Caribou, again, was a very early inspiration with my electronic experimentation. Additionally the fact that he sings over many of his tracks sort of pushed me to do the same…I must of had a really closed-minded image of how electronic music should be made, with no vocals or guitars but this album always reminded me that this wasn’t the case.

Burial – Burial

When I first heard of Burial and the anonymity of his identity I thought there something almost magical there and after I heard his debut LP it stayed with me for some time. There’s something about walking around on a cold night with Burial in your ears that’s almost dream-like.


Four Tet – Everything Ecstatic

Four Tet is without a doubt one of my heaviest influences in terms of how I started to write electronic music. The way in which he combines typical “band” instrumentation with electronic sound was so new for me at the time. Any time I play one of his albums I discover something new.

Flying Lotus – Reset EP

Flying Lotus always amazes me in how he approaches new projects. He certainly has a “sound” but something new comes out that I couldn’t ever imagine him producing but it still seems to fit. He just seems to branch out infinitely and I hope there’s so much more to come from him. I find it hard to pick a particular album that I would set apart so I’m going with his 2007 EP Reset.

Bonobo – The North Borders

When mixing and mastering my music I generally want it to sound as good as anything from this album. For me, Bonobo is the master of breathing new life into old samples and styles as well as his choice of clips to use. This was one of my favorite releases from 2013


Radiohead – Kid A

Radiohead were the biggest influence on how I approached music for a very long time so they kind of have to be on the list.

Mount Kimbie – Crooks & Lovers

This is another one of those albums that I revisit again and again, not just for pleasure, but also to get ideas if I’m stuck on something. I love this record from start to finish and would probably rank it in my top 5 for all genres.

Jamie xx – Girl/Sleep Sound

‘Sleep Sound ‘was probably my favorite track of last year. The vocal, the bass the effects, it just all worked so well for me. I’ve heard he’s close to a full LP and if this is the case I’m very much looking forward to it. The other track on this 12″, ‘Girl’, is almost like a mirror in terms of emotions it portrays to me. I love both of these tracks for very different reasons.


Air – Moon Safari

I think if I wanted to hear the music of the future from a standpoint of 30 years ago, it would be this album. I find it simply timeless and the fact that it came out when I was 7 makes me feel a little strange sometimes.

Jon Hopkins – Immunity

This album completely blew me away when I first heard it. I had only heard some of Hopkin’s remixes before listening to this and I was amazed at how one could even begin to think about how to write these kinds of songs, particularly the sound design used throughout. Also, the fact that it’s basically an album of two halves (the rave and the after-rave) it always reminds me of the positive varietal in modern electronic music.
