After the software hallucination of my last record Dreem Static we
reboot back into the Metropolis underground: a never-ending
computer simulation inhabited by freak machines and rogue
algorithms, says Quaid of his latest release. Trawling through past
and future frequencies to help process todays hyper-reality.
If this sounds loosely like the plot of a wild and exploratory sci-fi film
then thats because Quaid builds sonic worlds that mirror the breadth,
scope and futuristic visions of such films. Storytelling is a key part of
my music making process, he says. Im definitely channelling late
80s and early 90s sci-fi killers like Total Recall, Running Man,
Robocop and maybe some Knight Rider in there too. But all respun
for the post-pandemic hyper-real craziness of today. The sci-fi
element also fits into Quaids incredibly strong visual aesthetic,
namely his futuristic and very distinct eye glasses. The glasses are a
Quaid trademark for sure, he says. I got the LED lights custom
made by a guy in the US who worked on the Cylon outfits for the
original Battlestar Galactica.
Today, he shares the lead single SHE, which sees Quaid team up
with Shepherd, who lays down a caramel smooth vocal above a
sputtering beat. Ive known Shepherd for years and we always have
something cooking up between us, he says. Hes an integral part of
the music I make – I just love the timbre of his voice, its so
effortlessly soulful. I wanted to feature more sides of him on this LP
so we have a more structured song on SHE and a looser freestyle
cut-up thing on Untitled Freek.//
