Rising to prominence in the late 2000s through the Newgrounds audio portal, Erik McClure (previously known as Blackhole12) is an American producer with otherworldly talent for blood-pumping techno and trance. Taking early influence from his Newgrounds artist peers like ParagonX9, F-777, and Mrmilkcarton, many consider his sound a classic for this era of internet-age techno music. With a more orchestra-based approach in recent years, his mix of traditional instrumentation and EDM beats is a fresh take on his nostalgic tone.
