Strolling down memory lane today with this gem from RL Grime. The 82 song set is guaranteed to get you bouncin’ and bobbin’ like its Friday. For those of you unfamiliar with trap, consider this an introduction.
RL Grime aka Henry Steinway kept the crowd on their toes at Mixmag London with his 90 minute bass heavy set last year. Henry, who also goes by the name, CLOCKWORK for his more tribal house, bigroom and festival ready tunes is a Los Angeles native. He spent some time in New York City, while attending New York University. He credits his days in college djing at house parties and fraternities for developing his sound. Despite finding more success and releasing more music under RL GRime, he fully intends to continue making music under both monikers.
Seemingly out of nowhere, 22-year-old Henry Steinway aka RL Grime has risen the ranks to the forefront of what is a new generation genre-fusing artists, setting eyes on exploring the uncharted and reshaping modern music with every new track he makes. Releasing his debut EP Grapes in April of 2012 on LA’s WEDIDIT imprint, RL took little time in making a name for himself, garnering early support from some of the biggest DJ’s in the world, including Diplo, A-Trak, Skrillex, and Just Blaze. In 2013 he released his sophomore EP High Beams on Fools Gold Records, debuting at number 8 on Billboard’s electronic charts. RL Grime’s work as a remixer has also been met with great acclaim, clocking in official remixes for Benny Benassi, Chief Keef, Jamie Lidell, and Shlohmo – as well as a bootleg of “Mercy” by Kanye West, which has since received over 3 million plays on SoundCloud. With two EP’s and a world tour under his belt, 2014 looks to be RL Grime’s brightest year to date, continuing to refine his sound and further pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a producer in the 21st century.
