Welcome to the musical world of EPROM: a world of deliriously psychedelic productions that offer a glimpse into the future, today. Metahuman is EPROM's debut album for Dutch label Rwina and ahead of its release comes Regis Chillbin a two-track single featuring a remix by the omnipresent yet always on point Machinedrum.
Regis Chillbin is hip hop for the year 2050. Resting on a bed of a chest pounding bass drums cartoonish bleepy melodies fly across the sonic spectrum while piercing snare rushes, pitched toms, modulated basslines and vocal samples take their turns to create an irresistible swagger that leaves listeners unable to not move their feet, nod their head and swerve their bodies to the rhythm. A centrepiece of EPROM’s live sets, Regis Chillbin is pure unadulterated dancefloor fun.
Machinedrum continues his own time-hopping work on the remix, looking at the past to shape the future. He leaves the core rhythmic backbone intact and uses it to build his own delirious dancefloor workout bringing in snippets of UK rave from circa 1992 in the shape of ominous stabs blended with more delirious samples including some of the original bleeps as well as air horns, scratch sounds, and animal sounds. Manipulating all these throughout Machinedrum creates a beautiful sonic hysteria. All you need to do is close your eyes and loose yourself in the madness.
Regis Chillbin sets the tone for the forthcoming Metahuman album, with support from all your favourite DJs and producers including Gaslamp Killer, SBTRKT, Flying Lotus, Danny Breaks and more. EPROM’s music is rooted in hip hop which the producer twists to refine a modern take on the genre’s timeless aesthetics that bleeds effortlessly into electronic and dance music. Get ready, we’re taking off.
