It may have been fate that Erphun’s very first gig was on Halloween, because his music is brooding, pounding, moody and transformative, as if from another realm entirely. His ability to build a mood is mesmerizing and transports the listener to that alternate spiritual level that his moniker infers. Having spun around the US, Mexico, Canada, Europe and Australia at legendary clubs such as Exit in Lithuania, Chinese Laundry in Sydney, Brown Alley in Melbourne, 1015 in San Francisco, Circus in Montreal, Voodoo Lounge (Las Vegas), Erphun began to make his mark. Erphun’s music has been spun in clubs all over the world and is succinctly summed up by John Digweed as a deep, dark, hypnotic and brooding sound, which trademarks his pieces. With releases on Excentric Muzik, UMEK’s “1605”, Stephan Bodzin’s imprint, Herzblut, Alan Fitzpatrick’s label 8 Sided Dice , Sleaze UK, Audio Therapy and more recently to John Digweed’s Bedrock Records, his name is now instantly recognizable among the tech-house, minimal, and techno world of spinning producers who globe trot his compositions to be dropped on every conceivable audience. The reaction of the listener to his slow, driving builds that weave between the almost symphonic-like movements of each of his pieces is always jaw dropping and is usually followed by an exclamatory „SIIIIIICK!“. Erphun is also a highly sought after re-mixer for artists who want to hear the 4AM version of their pieces. The only way to really experience this immense talent is to see him in action. A night of Erphun’s making heightens the listener’s musical aesthetic and aurally illustrates his personal musical vision. 2010 has definitely started with a bang for Erphun. Having recently completed a mini tour in Europe, Mexico and a full week tour in Australia, there is no doubt that Erphun’s career is on full speed ahead! Having played at world renowned clubs such as “Exit” in Lithuania, “H2O” in Mexico City, “Brown Alley” & “Chinese Laundry” in Australia, Erphun has mesmerized and taken his audiences through a deep, driving, dark and brooding journey, which is really the best way to describe his sound… More on the production side, it’s been nothing short of producing massive hits on some of the worlds most reputable and respected labels… His recent release “Collusion” on Bedrock Records reached #7 on Beatport Top Ten for Techno. His other releases on Sleaze UK, 1605 and Excentric Muzik have been hammered, charted and played on some of the most reputable radio shows by all the heavy hitters in the industry today such as John Digweed, Chris Liebing, Umek, Oliver Huntemann, Fergie, Stephan Bodzin, and Adam Beyer to name a few. On a slightly different note, this coming fall the world will see the launch of Erphun’s very own label, Brood Audio. Already having some of the hottest Techno producers and some new talents on the roster, Erphun’s worldwide fan base will get a taste of Erphun’s darker and more sophisticated music first hand!
