High Score user Kyle "K" Murdock is an American producer and sound designer.

"Born & raised in Washington, DC, Kyle Murdock, who affectionately is called by many of his fans & friends “K”, is an audio creative as well as a proud nerdy person of color!  Murdock has worked professionally for the last 18 years as a producer in both the worlds of music and radio; From releasing critically acclaimed projects as a part of the group Panacea while signed to revered indie hip-hop label Rawkus Records to creating the audio profiles for XM Satellite Radio’s various hip-hop & jazz channels, K-Murdock’s self-proclaimed “Neosonic” (new-sound) productions have taken shape over the last decade and helped K not only garner respect from fans across the world but also collaborate with some of his favorite production contemporaries - DJ Spinna, DJ Nu-mark of Jurassic 5 & Nicolay of The Foreign Exchange as well as music legends like Wynton Marsalis & Quincy Jones.

K’s abilities allow him to successfully sample anything & EVERYTHING he finds. He is commissioned to have allowed him to work with a range of music artists including Grammy-nominated R&B singer Raheem Devaughn to the Capcom-licensed emcee Mega Ran, whose music has helped galvanize the hip-hop sub-genre called “nerdcore".

K, who majored in audio production while in school at Howard University, currently works for Vice Media Group as a sound designer for their news team while also teaching as an adjunct audio professor at his alma mater. Additionally, the Red Bull Music Academy alumnus, also co-operates the imprint RandomBeats Music along with the aforementioned artist Mega Ran, who he’s been creating music and touring the world with since 2010 when they released their love letter to the hip-hop & video game cultures, via the album "Forever Famicom."
