The Explorer EP is aptly named, as Eric employs a variety of sound scapes and production techniques in this offering. The EP is quickly making an impact, having been featured on Beatport’s main page and played on radio from Australia to Italy to Asia. “Hope Springs Eternal” is a tropical house groove that is featured on Discobelle, complete with an edit by house legend Roy Davis Jr. “Let It Go” is an electro banger with pounding drums, vicious stabs, a wobbling bass line and a floor-crushing vocal that appeared in Mustard Pimp’s latest mix. “The End Of Mankind” brings influences from Grime. Juke, and Drumstep together with monstrous sounds and madcap vocal work by Louisahhh!!! and Sharp himself in a tongue in cheek apocalyptic scene.
