If you had a physicist for a father, how would you tell him you want to drop out of school to make rap beats for the kids on the Internet? Pro tip: Before you do anything, ask Eric Dingus. For the past 11 months, the self-taught rap producer has spent nearly every waking hour layering synths, lining up cacophonous drums, sampling Japanese horror films, and creating a variety of dreamy ambient productions that have been earning attention from a diverse collection fans, bloggers, and rappers.
Eric’s production credits include work for Gangsta Boo, Main Attrakionz, and Ethelwulf and Chris Travis of Raider Klan, with many more in the works.
