James Prudhomme, better known as the artist Suicideyear, is an American electronic music composer, turntablist, and songwriter from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.In May of 2014, Prudhomme released his second mixtape titled ‘Japan,’ a conceptual piece detailing the last 7 months of his life. The tape was applauded for its convergence of southern trap and mid late century minimalism. The track “cccxxv” was used by Swedish artist Yung Lean for his single “Hurt.”
Shortly after ‘Japan’, Prudhomme was sought by Parisian artist Brodinski. Suicideyear released the single “Finale” on “Bromance #10” and “Don’t Worry” on “Homieland Vol. 1.” on Brodinski’s Bromance label. He will be featured on Homieland Vol. 2 in January 2016. Suicideyear has produced for the likes of Bones, OG Maco, Denzel Curry, Rome Fortune and Yung Lean among other vocalists.
Suicideyear signed to Software Recording Co. in July of 2014 after Japan caught the ear of contemporary artist and label head Oneohtrix Point Never. Along with the signing, Software announced the release of his debut EP titled ‘Remembrance’. The album was written and produced between Florida and Louisiana reflecting on themes of love and loss against the backdrop of the deep American south, according to the label. The release was met with critical acclaim, portraying themes of melancholy and warmth and ended with a cover of My Bloody Valentine’s “When You Sleep.” Prudhomme is currently preparing his debut album which will be his first ambition to feature vocalists.
