Seoul-born, Boston-based producer mmph (aka 24-year-old Sae Heum Han)’s debut EP for Tri Angle Records, Dear God, is out today and available to stream now. Dear God comes alongside mmph’s involvement in serpentwithfeet’s eagerly anticipated forthcoming album, soil, and recent production work for hotly tipped newcomer Lauren Auder and music legend David Byrne on his latest album. Having previously shared the video for lead track “Sun God,” mmph has another video for the following track, “Façade,” also directed by Maria Constanza Ferreira.
Classically trained since childhood, Sae Han first came to Boston to study Cello performance at Berklee College of Music before turning his concentration towards Electronic Production & Design and starting his project as mmph. Dear God marks a turning point in the rapid evolution of this young producer, a merging of his classical training, sophisticated composition, and unique sound design. Han’s ability to conjure a seemingly contradictory series of influences into bespoken universes places him alongside sonic puzzle makers like Oneohtrix Point Never, Nicolas Jaar, Arca and Caribou.
