RL Grime Drops House, Future Breaks and Garage Mix Inspired by Upcoming Album
An RL Grime mix outside of October? His new album must really be something.
The influential producer is currently gearing up for the release of his long-awaited third album, PLAY. Rather than a traditional tracklist, the record will be split into three distinct sections, "APEX," "GRID" and "RUSH," which will each focus on a distinct component of his trademark sound.
The latter of the trio will see Grime dive into the sounds of house, future breaks, garage and techno as he ventures out of the trap, hip-hop and bass arena. In honor of this bold departure, he's shared a new "RUSH" mix before the full album arrives later this month.
A stripped-back mix featuring nothing more than our star mixing inside a warehouse, Grime's latest features the sounds of Jaime xx, Disclosure, salute, Sammy Virji, DJ Seinfeld and many more. In the video's description, he calls these styles of music some of his "deepest musical inspirations." Seeing as this is an album-inspired mix, fans can enjoy four of the seven tracks that will be included on the "RUSH" portion of PLAY.
Listen to "RUSH MIX 001" below. PLAY will hit the airwaves on Friday, September 15th, 2023. You can pre-save the upcoming album here.[embed]https://youtube.com/watch?v=jIMNOhY88bI[/embed]
