Artist

Mild Maynyrd (real name Dan Black) is a producer and musician based out of the Twin Cities (St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN). He is a turntablist, guitarist, bass player, drummer, programmer, looper, and keyboardist.

Picking up the guitar at an early age, he soon was ditching school to play with his friends... filling garage after garage with enough feedback and noise to do permanent damage to one of his ears. He started playing in bands, from Metal to Punk, and added keys, drums, and bass to his skill-set. Maynyrd also started experimenting with crackled tape recordings and production around this time, all the while discovering new forms of music from Jazz to Hip-Hop, Electronica to Soul. By the time college came and went he was a fully fledged audiophile with the word 'music' tattooed on him. Wholly dedicated to a mindset of zero boundaries and infinite discovery. Ready to try and be anything.

Mild Maynyrd was born as a coping mechanism with death all around him. He completed his first album as MM out of necessity. The 'Nordic Rust EP' was a lo-fi, dreamy album with Hip-Hop influenced beats and grimy Industrial sounds, an aural translation of his mind during the scariest point of his life. He learned and grew. Months later the accidental discovery of 50-some Notorious B.I.G. acapellas led to an obsession with remixes and alternates. Now armed with turntables and an MPC, Maynyrd completed 'MM vs. BIG': a Biggie remix album combining his brand of Industrial / Electro with hard-hitting beats and lyrics. When it came time to tackle a second 'solo' album, he took aim at the throat of the music industry itself, crafting an album of abrasive and experimental sounds ('Broadcast AM'). His friends convinced him to do another Biggie album ('MM vs. BIG: Volume II'); which matured his production a little more, to the point of somehow combining Bob Dylan and Biggie.

He is constantly changing and evolving, trying to incorporate new sounds and instrumentation to his tracks, opening his ears to new music, pushing himself.
