With releases on Urban Connections, Abseits Recordings, Diffuse Reality, and Bass Agenda Recordings as Nuklear Prophet, the LA-based DJ/producer readies his full-length album "Prophecies 11:21" for Utrecht-based U-Trax. Formed of an eclectic and energetic collection of gems mined from his overwhelming archive, the album takes in genres such as Electro, Hip Hop, Footwork, Juke, and beyond.

Leading the release is the 808 luminary Egyptian Lover's remix of "L.A. Rockz", featured on the recently released "L.A. Rockz" EP, kicking off the LP with his trademark 808-infused sound. A nod to Detroit-flavoured Electro is presented via the dark and brooding tracks "Nuklear Prophet", "808 Plague", and "Compton", with the lighter atmospherics of the genre covered on "Solar Winds".

"Everlastin' Bass", "Back Up Off My Tip", and "The Train Ride To Coconino" offer Footwork inspired bangers, with the latter previously featured on the Legowelt curated U-Trax compilation "U R Here!" earlier this year. Moving across a spectrum of tempos, styles, and moods across the album, exemplified on the sluggish trip-hop of "The Mars Goblin", Nuklear Prophet expertly touches on a range of bass-driven genres, displaying his widespread influences and knack for hard-hitting production throughout.

Hailing from downtown Los Angeles, Nuklear Prophet, aka Erik Villalpando, is heavily influenced by West Coast Hip Hop and Electro. Winning multiple DJ awards, including 3x World Records DJ Competition under his DJ Dope-E alias, Villalpando cites his inspiration as coming from some of the most influential Los Angeles DJs of his childhood, including Tony G, DJ Joe Cooley, Julio G, and DJ Aladdin.
