Portland-via-San Francisco producer Eprom has long been obsessed with the future of music and its production methods, consistently issuing loads of EPs and singles boasting his obsessively updated style of beat work ever since 2007. The artist born Alexander Dennis recently appeared on our radar once again, this time with news of his first full-length album, Metahuman. (Not to mention, he also commandeered our Downloads section with his well-received “Realization" tune, and subsequently scored sixth place in our Top 20 Downloads of May.) Before Eprom’s LP arrives on July 2 via Amsterdam’s Rwina imprint, we’ve been treated to the exclusive stream of its 13 mind-bending productions.
If you want a higher audio quality and to support EPROM, this is where you should go.
Thanks a lot, Playground.
‘Can Control’ is intentionally dirty, calculatedly evil and the thanks to the bass tones the thing never really lets up, even when it’s not anywhere close to gunning it at all. It’s infectious as hell and when you combine that with the motorised lurch of ‘Regis Chillbin’ you can start to see why me and a whole bunch of other Eprom fanboys are so excited about Metahuman.
Metahuman is not only [EPROM’s] debut full-length, but also the first album release for the Dutch Rwina Records. It will be preceded by a 12-inch single for “Regis Chillbin,” backed with a remix by Machinedrum.

His immaculately produced beats tend to trigger a deep compulsion to screw your face up and get on the dancefloor, and this one’s no different.
Arriving late next month, “Regis Chillbin” is the forthcoming new single by San Francisco producer Eprom. The two-track release, which features a remix from the insatiably prolific Machinedrum, proceeds the beatmaker’s new full-length, Metahuman. Amsterdam-based imprint Rwina will drop both records this year (expect the LP in late May/early June), but you can preview Eprom’s new single and check out his album’s artwork and tracklist before then, below.
