Kaskade‘s Atmosphere shied away from big room, electro house hits and instead showcased floating, ambient melodies. For those who thirst for a kick of higher energy, Los Angeles’s Henry Steinway, better known as Clockwork, brings his popping electro house rendition of Kaskade and Project 46‘s “Last Chance.” First debuted in June during EDC Las Vegas, this electrifying rendition builds from a series of stunting bass kicks into explosive synth stabs, perfectly primed for a festival crowd. Clockwork’s “Last Chance” remix will be available December 6th.Posted by
As a thank you to his loyal fans for helping him hit 100,000 likes on Facebook, Clockwork has given away Hardwell’s re-working of “Tremor.” This take amps up the original track and gives it an extra punch, à la Rambo, of Dutch House. The build starts off with more energy making it a less drastic yet pumped up climb, while the drop is still ear-popping. Out of the archives and into the hands of the public as an edit of the now-number one DJ in the world, claim “Tremor” as your own.
Henry Steinway, the mastermind behind the multifaceted Clockwork, has once again removed his electro-house production hat and released a new tune under his alternate moniker, RL Grime. The young American has seen enormous success throughout his career as he has proven his diversity both inside and outside the studio, producing sonically impressive productions, and entertaining thousands during his championed TomorrowWorld set. Although Steinway’s past trap productions have been heavy-hitting, the smooth synths of “Because Of U” intertwine with enchanting vocals to make for a softer production that lives up to the RL Grime reputation. Although the track seems to diverge from the style used on the High Beams EP, the variation in production is welcomed with open arms.
Subsequent to releasing his summer hit, “Surge,” Clockwork is about to present to the world his next new Dim Mak single, “Blitz.” Embodying wiry, electro synths, vivacious drums, and a slower BPM with which fans can keep up, this track seems to have been produced with the big room in mind. While consistent with his signature electro house style, the producer’s blood, sweat, and tears are exhibited in the diversity of sound and colossal experimentation in the soon to be released tune.
This is not the first time Clockwork, sometimes known by his trap style alias, RL Grime, has chosen Dim Mak. In February, he released his Surge EP, which struck #1 on the Beatport Electro House Top 100 chart and #4 on Beatport’s Top 100 Releases. His November 1st release of “Blitz” will be just the latest in a string of achievements and serves as a firm transition from his last hit with Wynter Gordon.Posted by
When talking about OWSLA, it is nearly impossible not to name drop, and the second chapter of Jack Beats remixes only makes the challenge more difficult. Following up on August’s efforts from Major Lazer, Brillz and AC Slater in Jack Beats Remixed Vol. 1, Clockwork has enlisted his remix services for the second volume. Taking on the iconic British pair’s collab with Example and Diplo, the young Dim Mak signee will make his debut on The Nest with a re-strategized “War.” More electro than eclectic, the remix preserved the vocals while twisting the tones into bass-heavy builds. To be released alongside A-Trak’s rework of “Just A Beat” on September 24th, the “War” remix offers just a taste of the many ways to serve Niall and Ben.Posted by

Taking the torch from mentor and label head Wolfgang Gartner, Charlie Darker is re-imagining electronic music and painting an all new picture beneath the Kindergarten Records umbrella. This week, however, the Canadian DJ-producer lends his talents to Clockwork and Wynter Gordon at Dim Mak, putting his spin on their “Surge” collaboration. Darker offers familiarity to fans of the original production but injects his own style on a rendition he’s marked his own. Following his own crisp introductory build and the full length vocal hook, Charlie progressively packs in unique layers of sound for a version of “Surge” that’s being offered as a free download.
Los Angeles’s own Henry Steinway has a full plate in his world of dance music, living up to two personas — RL Grime and Clockwork. Away from his trap moniker and retreating to his original artist persona, Steinway revisits his February Dim Mak showcase — his Clockwork release of Surge – unveiling the official music video to its Wynter Gordon-assisted title track. The visuals for “Surge” take on the feel-good nature of the tune and display its characteristics through blissful nature, only to twist and reinvent the scenes as the track moves through a wild ride of dub-laden drops.Posted by
The identity of RL Grime has long been known to be Henry Steinway of Clockwork fame, yet over the past year, his trap alter ego has seemingly taken on a life of its own. What started as an experimental side project led to Steinway topping the Beatport charts with his now-ubiquitous trap remix to Benny Benassi’s “Satisfaction.” With his first RL Grime EP to date, Steinway unveils High Beams, a five-track assortment of various trap musings.
