Philadelphia, United States (1999 – present)

Proem, otherwise known as Richard Bailey, is a 35 year old web designer currently living outside of Philadelphia, PA. He has been releasing music since 1999 on labels like merck, n5MD, and Hydrant. He started experimenting with electronic devices at the age of 19, using three thrift store turntables, some tape decks, a few garage sale Casio SK-5s, and some circuit bent bargain bin keyboards. He has released albums, EPs and remixes on labels across the IDM scene and is regarded as one of the early members of the strong US based IDM scene that started around 2000.

    "Socially Inept " is very average for me compared to other artists in the same genres. [2] below average when compared to the other Proem releases, too. I never understood why that album is so popular. I'd take Live MD [CD?] or You Shall Have Ever Been over that one anyday.

    I have listened to Proem for the first time. The Permanent Solution album.And thought it was rather bland & generic.......

    @Murvin01 Really? Can you direct me to those other artists then because I think Socially Inept is truly awesome.

    Love him a lot. Is there any similar artist to Proem? I can't find. No one sound so melodiously.
