Boom. Your Monday just got a little more CYBER, baby.

After receiving heaps of critical attention (the good kind!) for his official remixes for the likes of Lido, lil aaron, and Kid Froopy — not to mention for co-producing, alongside A. G. Cook, the track “I Got It” off Charli XCX’s Pop 2 mixtape — 19-year-old New York wonder-producer umru has unveiled his official debut on (duh) the PC Music label.

The newly released search result EP utilizes a smattering of “performances from a number of talented vocalists” (e.g. Chicago-based producer and vocalist Laura Les a.k.a. osno1, LA-based singer Ravenna Golden, LA vocalist Lewis Grant, and Australian-born LA-based singer Banoffee — as well as some vocalizing from umru himself) and sets all that hollering against a ballin’ backbone of bass-heavy production wizardry.

“i have trouble describing my music,” the CAPS-phobic producer writes, “but this project sounds something like the lights flashing across a cathedral ceiling, reflections of the ipads from which a choir reads their music. every song was very much a collaborative process with the vocalists — i’m really proud of Laura, Ravenna, Lewis, and Banoffee’s work, the result is as much their project as it is mine.”

But hey; less TALK, more VOCALS, right? The EP is out as-fuck right now, and you can check out the lyric video for its EP’s penultimate track “heat death” (feat. Banoffee) down below. You know what to do: click, click, click; stream, stream, stream; buy, buy, buy; blah, blah, blah. How else are you going to fill that gaping void inside you?
