In just a few short years, LA-based trap producer RL Grime has gone from bedroom hobbyist to breakout sensation with his massive, floor-shattering remixes of artists like Kanye West and Benny Benassi. Indeed, the young producer is a master of both the buildup and the drop, slaying eardrums around the country with his bass-heavy original productions and epic live sets. Fans of hip-hop, trap, and even acid house have a new hero in RL Grimes, and they'll get the chance to have their minds blown in the flesh as he hits the road for his latest tour.
Harry Steinway, a.k.a. RL Grime, was born in Los Angeles in 1991. After studying music business at universities in Boston and New York, he returned to LA and joined the WeDidIt collective with fellow producers Shlomo, Groundislava, and D33J. In 2012 he released the Grapes EP on the WeDidIt label, garnering attention later in the year for his acclaimed remix of Kanye West's "Mercy," which The Fader described "as if hail and tsunami waves were both byproducts of bass." His 2013 EP High Beams, a collaboration with producer Slava and California rapper Problem, debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Electronic Chart, further boosting his popularity with fans around the world. On his latest tour, RL Grime will treat fans to more epic buildups, breakdowns, and never-before-heard cuts from his ever-growing catalog.
