Local Hero: Grum - In Love (Barrientos Remix)

LOCAL HERO: Grum - In Love (Barrientos Remix)

2013 has been an important year for Grum. returning with a polished big room sound which was supported by everyone from B.Traits to Solomun. With his second album ‘Human Touch’ forthcoming, new single ‘In Love’ is already lighting up the airwaves with a deep burning remix from Barrientos providing a bass heavy alternative. Proving that the Glaswegian producer isn’t just about reflective moments and soulful rhythms, this is set to do some serious damage.

We’ve got a feeling Inkke is a name you’re going to be hearing a lot more of in 2014. Having spent the last few years fine tuning his sound while making his name as a DJ, he’s fast becoming one of Glasgow’s most exciting new producers, turning out his own inimitable take on modern grime. Featured on Éclair FiFi’s Radio 1 show a few months back, ‘Thinkk Star’ is futuristic, sparse and unlike anything else you’ll hear today.

With Mia Dora now carrying some serious momentum we can only wonder what 2014 has in store for them, and with recent successes on Moda Black and MadTech Recordings, they’re definitely on a hot streak. Here they deliver something slightly different for London producer Neil Quigley, with a haunting remix which employs broken beats and a heavy breathing vocal sample.

We always like to round off our list with someone fresh, a new producer who we think you should keep an eye on, and Philathrobeats Forty Winks fits the bill perfectly. Offering this is as a free download on Soundcloud, ‘Night Ride’ is a half-time stepper which is beautiful and disturbing in equal measure, taking you deep into the conscious of a tortured soul.
