Most musicians incorporate the things they love most into their art. This may include significant others, cherished family members, or big-booty hos if youre 2 Live Crew. Since becoming a DJ is the new starting a band, were guessing it works the same way with electronic music.
If so, well have to assume that San Franciscos 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 EPROMs hybrid of live remixing and manipulation with all its curious sound effects at Rogue Bar.
