San Fran emcee takes you back to the classical Nintendo era

Most musicians incorporate the things they love most into their art. This may include significant others, cherished family members, or “big-booty hos” if you’re 2 Live Crew. Since becoming a DJ is the new “starting a band,” we’re guessing it works the same way with electronic music.

If so, we’ll have to assume that San Francisco’s DJ EPROM sincerely loves Nintendo, intergalactic war, and robot self-love. His blend of hip-hip, dubstep, hyphy, and bass-heavy neurocrunk includes sound effects straight out of Super Mario Bros. on tracks like “Ribcracker” and “Jawbreaker.” He incorporates lasers, phasers, and photons on the track “Whyyyyyyyyyyy” (a title that contains exactly 11 ys), and invokes the sort of creepy noises an adolescent male robot might make in the bathroom on “64 Bytes.”

On Friday, November 27, catch EPROM’s hybrid of live remixing and manipulation with all its curious sound effects at Rogue Bar.
