Following the release of David Byrne’s ‘American Utopia’ album, to which he contributed, producer Mmph has announced that independent label Tri Angle will give a very welcome wider release to his 2017 underground EP ‘Dear God’ on 13 Apr. Ahead of that, he’s released a new video for its opening track, ‘Sun God’.

“‘Dear God’ was written in times filled with doubt and personal hardship”, says the producer, real name Sae Heum Han. “Experiencing personal tragedies and [the] uncontrollable nature of our lives, writing the EP was the only way I knew how to cope and deal with these events. Writing this EP not only let me vent, but it also helped me fall in love with music all over again. Ironically, it was the last thing I sought but ended up becoming the medicine that I desperately needed”.

As an introduction to Han’s work, ‘Sun God’ is utterly astonishing. Opening in glitchy, industrial darkness, with omnipresent bass drawing all the air out of the room, it gradually gives way to lighter melodies that battle their way out to freedom.
