As oh so many of its purveyors attest, the term “bass music” is hard to define. After all, bass is nothing more than the lower range of frequencies. Everything from a human voice to a revving engine uses them. So if an artist is going to adopt this term for their music and still stand out, they have to morph the bass into something digestible and enjoyable.
That is what Eprom has done yet again on his latest single, “Hope.” Once again being released on Deadbeats, label bosses Zeds Dead give free rein to Eprom to insert a wide variety of feelings and emotions into his generally grueling style. White-hot flashes of vocals and drum breaks are aligned alongside kick hits that would rumble the foundation of any venue lucky enough to hose Eprom for a show.
It’s not just about the sounds themselves on this track either. Eprom also displays his understanding of restraint, incorporating space that allows sonic ideas to evolve and diminish, making for truly standout piece of music.
