"'Metahuman' is Eprom's debut album, borne of futuristic ideals grounding its musical offerings in a space that is far removed from our current reality yet inevitably linked to it. William Burroughs said "if you cut open the present, the future bleeds out" and so the music on this album is inspired by a possible future, but is made and consumed today, most appropriately in the dark corners of a club where a finely tuned sound system will allow mind and body to fully appreciate Eprom's sonic subtleties and physical pressures. 12 tracks long, 'Metahuman' is a bold statement of intent that is aimed squarely at the dancefloor first, though it still functions in other spaces as Eprom balances more restrained moments alongside boisterous musical bravado. As with previous releases 'Metahuman' has roots in hip hop which Eprom twists to refine a modern take on the genre's timeless aesthetics that bleeds effortlessly into electronic and dance music. Using a sort of condensed bass minimalism as the foundation, Eprom manipulates established concepts and expectations of tension and release in ways that are refreshing and bring life to the music, with a beauty in his beats that shines as bright as some of Moebius' most striking works."
