The 24 year-old, Boston-based producer mmph, or Sae Heum Han, announced his debut EP, Dear God, will be out April 13th on Tri Angle Records. Han studied at the Berklee College of Music, playing the cello before he strayed onto electronic production and beginning the project, mmph.
mmph also released the video to the first track off the EP, “Sun God.” The video was directed by Maria Constanza Ferreira.
“Dear God was written in times filled with doubt and personal hardship. Experiencing personal tragedies and uncontrollable nature of our lives, writing the EP was the only way I knew how to cope and deal with these events. Simultaneously, attending school for music, you are constantly surrounded by criticism and anxiety. The love you have for the art is often overshadowed by the expectation of excellence and virtuosity. My personal love affair with music became one of my last priorities,” he said in a press release.
As for the album artwork, Han explained its significance for him, saying, “the rose that’s represented in the album artwork describes it all: I received it on my birthday and pinned it to my bedroom wall and it became the first and the last thing I saw during my day when I started writing the EP. It was there when I learned of my mother’s illness, my friend’s tragedy, and when I met the love of my life. It went through all of it with me and it’s still there.”
