Henry Steinway lives something of a double life. On the one hand alluring the house world as Clockwork with his agressive live sets and creative bootleg packs, Steinway has simultaneously enraptured the trap world under the moniker RL Grime. Taking a step back from the massive trap anthems of his alter ego, Steinway has dropped his first Clockwork EP since Titan.
Though a less numerous release, Surge EP makes up for its lack of quantity with tremendous originals “Surge” and “Tremor.” “Surge,” the A-side to the EP, features the vocal enrichment of Wynter Gordon. With its effervescent build up, the subsequent electro drop makes for an intriguing dichotomy between a melody-driven hook and a fantastically funky bassline. “Tremor,” the B-side to the EP, follows a similar methodology to tracks like “BBBS” (Big Bad Bassline Song). With its ripping drop and cascading breakdown, “Tremor” packs a serious punch. Surge EP is released today on Dim Mak.
