Producer EOM Passes Away Due To Complications From Auto-Immune Disease
Having collaborated heavily with Wax, as well as made tracks with Anderson .Paak, Blu, Chamillionaire, Dumbfounded, Asher Roth and Shad, EOM became one hip-hop's in-demand beat-makers. A producer who could do no wrong, EOM meshed different styles to create masterpieces for many artists, but he is perhaps most recognized for his work with the aforementioned. Today, we say goodbye to EOM, or Elements Music, as he has unfortunately passed away following health complications stemming from the auto-immune disease scleroderma.
A Juno-award winning producer, his loss is incredibly significant in the landscape Canadian music and culture. EOM had recently released Danielito, a project where EOM took control the mic for the first time instead simply crafting the beats. The EP, featuring Wax, Lacree, and Blake Johnston, shows Elements Music exploring his musical versatility, rapping and singing while also commandeering engineering and production duties. Danielito remains available to stream on the artist's Bandcamp page here, as well as many his previous works.
We extend our condolences to EOM's family and friends as we grieve a significant loss in the hip-hop community. His frequent collaborator Wax reacted to the news his passing, as well as Asher Roth who have tweeted out the following. RIP Elements Music.
