He’s done it all. Henry Steinway (RL Grime) was largely responsible for a massive explosion in the trap music scene two years ago, after releasing classics like his Love Sosa Remix and the anthemic Mercy remix. These days he’s tearing it up with his versatile electro house side project, Clockwork, which is impressively popular for producing an entirely different genre. His recent halloween mix not only demonstrates his natural talent for combining all areas of hype music (with a seasonal flair at that), but also his uncanny ability to stay ahead of the trap game.
Steinway knows crowds. He’s been at the top rung of the EDM ladder for quite some time now, and he’s not leaving anytime soon because he’s acutely in touch with his audience. RL Grime’s set at Paradise Rock Club in Boston on Thursday was a great example of his talent, showcasing his above average DJing abilities. The unofficial king of trap music threw the fuck down, dropping a wide array of tracks ranging from heavy bangers to melodic beats like Because of U all woven into a neatly crafted performance. Many artists these days aren’t very diligent about playing to the crowd, and their mixes typically lack natural shifts from high to low energy throughout the set. Fans were ecstatic to get turnt in such a personal venue to the biggest tracks out there, and you should be too!
