Two Nights of RL Grime This Weekend at Terminal 5November 3rd, 2017
He’s only 26, but producer (and member of the electronic-music collective WeDidIt) Henry Steinway has been forging a name for himself for several years now. First as Clockwork, crafting bouncy electronic house music and playing big stages, from Holy Ship! to Ultra. But since 2012, he’s been making a name for himself with big-time trap anthems as RL Grime, walking the gritty line between hip-hop and electronic beats on a host of singles, remixes—for the likes of Kanye West, Rihanna and Drake—and EPs before finally releasing his first studio LP, Void (stream it below), in 2014. Renowned for Sound called it “a pretty damn impressive debut from someone so enviably young. Just as adept on his own as he is in collaboration mode, RL Grime’s first full-length album is a comprehensive introduction to the myriad of different tastes, technologies and talents in his possession and will undoubtedly continue to see his star deservedly rise.” He’s steadily been releasing singles (one of them, “Stay for It,” featuring Miguel, above) for his much-anticipated second LP, Nova, and now in the middle of his fall tour, energetic performer RL Grime lands at Terminal 5 this weekend for a pair of shows, on Saturday and Sunday. DJ-producers Graves and Kittens open both nights.
