I’ve talked about Mylets before. If you’re not familiar Mylets.. it’s a band, a one man band, featuring Henry Kohen managing loops and effects like no one I’ve ever seen. On top of that, he sequences drums on the fly, and sings. I’ve seen plenty of one-man-bands in the past, a they usually rely on midi and pre-recorded patches/loops.
Mylets builds these loops on the fly with an arsenal vintage and modern pedals. The loop transitions are seamless and incredibly quick. He doesn’t create the loop and wait for it to cycle back and get a feel for it.. then build the second. He’s building them at light speed. It’s impressive. If you mess with loops, you know that you’re tethering on the edge things falling apart. It’s impressive to see Mylets command such control and confidence as he’s building the song.
I came across this performance on Audiotree, and wanted to showcase it here today.
Mylets over the years seems to change his pedals ALL the time, in the above performance which is fairly recent is different than the most recent photo I found on his instagram account. I thought I would explore those pedals. There are few question marks here, if you can help fill in the blanks.. let me know.
