Born from the depths of darkness, music artist RL Grime utilizes elements of electronic and rap music as his hinges to create sonic worlds that are arcane and mysterious in nature, yet resonate far beyond dance floor expectations. With works that pay as much attention to texture and space as they do beats and composition, RL Grime has been able to carve a lane for himself within the electronic space without losing sight of his artistic value — striving for innovative ways to push boundaries rather than clinging onto trends. Aesthetically speaking, RL Grime exudes an immersive environment that is just as much fueled by catharsis as it is its dark connotations. At certain moments tracks can feel extremely intense — yielding heavy listening experiences — while at other times almost uplifting. Though aural atmospheres may variate, what remains consistent in RL Grime’s music is each and every sound, drum kick, and silence serves its own vital purpose. Nothing useless. Nothing ill-ordered.
As a DJ, RL Grime makes use of the same apocalyptic vitality that can be felt within his music and translates it into the live space, making for a viscerally captivating spectacle that’s equally bold and daring as it is energetic.
With three EP’s to his name, numerous critically acclaimed singles and remixes, as well as worldwide tours/festival appearances — RL Grime is finally ready to step into center stage with a debut full-length album, set to release in November of 2014 on WeDidIt Records.
