A savage synth wizard and mad beat scientist who brings bass to life, Eprom infuses his music with such raw energy, sense of movement and love of the bounce that it almost becomes human. Named over and over by other top West Coast producers as an influence and inspiration, this respected San Francisco-based artist is making a profound impact on the evolution of modern sound.
Hip hop and electronic music are colliding in an exciting sonic apocalypse, and Eprom is a master of this slower yet very danceable style that has caught the ears, hearts and feet of a whole new generation of beat lovers. His sound combines a laid-back lean with forward-moving energy, reflecting the feeling of the Left Coast and resulting in a rare breed of experimental music- one that puts the dance floor first.
Eprom’s collaborations with The Glitch Mob’s Boreta as Nasty Ways and with Mozaic as Hookerz N Blow have also been met with mad love from the underground, and he has released music on several domestic and international labels including Cloak X Dagger, Surefire, Black Acre, Rwina and Bad Acid, as well as a recent 12” with Eskmo on the groundbreaking label Warp Records.
Fans and supporters of Eprom include Flying Lotus, Starkey, Rusko, Jakes, Rustie, Megasoid, The Gaslamp Killer, The Glitch Mob and BBC Radio One’s Mary Anne Hobbs, and the producer has shared the stage with many of the international electronic music community’s hottest artists. With four new 12” out just in 2010, Eprom is finally getting the recognition he has earned as an integral part of the giant bouncing backbone of West Coast Sound.
