EDITORS’ NOTES

As Clockwork, Harry Steinway is known for tearing up EDM festival stages with fervid electro-house. As RL Grime, Steinway takes things in a moodier, more cerebral direction. Void is all dark skies and chilly temperatures, traversing gritty, languorous trap ("Core"), melodramatic R&B ("Reminder," featuring How to Dress Well), and sinister techno ("Danger"). Free from his more populist alter ego, Steinway explores spooky textures and weird structures, such as the sci-fi synths of "Let Go" or the swooning beats of the aptly named "Monsoon." "Julia," however, is brisk and energetic drum and bass, a nod to Steinway's lighter side.

TITLE TIME

About RL Grime

When Los Angeles-based DJ/producer Henry Steinway combines hip-hop, electro, drum'n'bass, and any number of other bass-heavy genres, he dons the moniker RL Grime. After debuting the project in 2011 with a series of Internet uploads, RL Grime became official with the Grapes EP, released in 2012 by Wedidit Collective. In 2013, the Fool's Gold label released the High Beams EP with a guest appearance from rapper Problem. RL Grime remixed Benny Benassi's club staple "Satisfaction" as well as Jamie Lidell's "What a Shame," and toured with Baauer, Ryan Hemsworth, and Jim-E Stack. Full-length debut Void appeared in 2014 and featured rapper Big Sean, electro-house producer Boys Noize, and indie act How to Dress Well. A remix album followed, as did "Tell Me," a collaboration with What So Not, and a remix of the Weeknd's "The Hills." The solo single "Aurora" appeared in 2016, as did "Waiting," a collaboration with Skrillex and What So Not. "Reims" and "Stay for It" (with Miguel) followed in 2017, in advance of RL Grime's second full-length, Nova. ~ David Jeffries
