EPROM is one of the vibrant West-Coast scene’s most colourful characters and an important cog in the international Rwina machine. He’s a consummate post-millennial producer, and his sound varies from toxic hip-hop to crunked-out dubstep to bizarre concoctions somewhere in between. His beats jiggle and drip and contort wildly, always in some perpetual state of melting, churning, and mutation. He’s had releases on Warp, Surefire, and Bristol-based Bad Acid, but it’s his Rwina releases that have been the most visible and enduring, whether it’s the timestretch torture and fierce melodic geysers of “Humanoid” or deconstructionist mayhem of his Pipe Dream EP, where dubstep and grime collide for a staggering beast that shakes off heavy blotches of radioactive fluorescent sludge with every beat that lands. His live sets are something to behold as well, emphasizing the hip-hop roots that lurk underneath his sewer beats, and an hour of EPROM is bound to turn your brain into to the same sort of goo that gums the gears of his distinctive beats.
The Clicks & Whistles sound has been perking the ears of some of the US’s highly regarded electronic producers and labels as well. Starting with their Radiator/Cranberry Goose EP on Atlanta’s Embassy Recordings, 2011 and 2012 will see forthcoming releases on Tittsworth and Ayres T&A Records and Kingdom’s Fade to Mind imprint. There will certainly be plenty more on the horizon for this talented young duo, as they continue to expose the world to the unique sound of Clicks & Whistles.
