The Future Is: Grimm

And now on to something that will become a regular monthly feature here at Sci & Pro (inspired by this thread and it's sinking demise), a head's up and profile on a new edge producer I feel is deserving of more notice and coverage. For the first installment, I'm staying local and shedding light on a Toronto MC turned budding producer, Grimm.

I was first introduced to Grimm back in December of 2007, when Make:Shift released his track 'Getting Deep' on their mpFREE compilation, 'Bassbored'. A tidy little mp3 indie album, looking to bring in some new artists and showcase some older friends of the label. Fast forward to May of 2008, he really caught my attention with his dark haunting number, 'Etched In Stone'. A gripping evil edged tune that makes your skin crawl. A real moody piece of music that makes you feel something when listening to it (to this day I can't understand why it hasn't been signed). From there we linked on AIM and he's been passing me tunes ever since, a fair amount too I should note. This guy does some serious work in the studio, crankin out solo works and collabs by the bunch (all quality!). In turn, label heads have started to recognize his talents and sign his tracks. Most recently Future Thinkin out of London UK, snatched him up for a release. And those notable collaborations I mentioned earlier, featuring the talents of Mutt, Nusense and Stanza, well it's almost certain that they'll find reputable homes in the coming weeks and secure a slot for release in 2009, no doubt. With a lot to look forward to and plenty to be patient for, this is merely the tip of the iceberg for the Grimmful One. Take note!
