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.
While recently Clockwork has been something of a bootleg mastermind, it’s easy to forget his rip-roaring production abilities. It’s been a while since Clockwork has released some original material, but the wait has certainly paid off; Clockwork’s new Surge EP is shaping up to be some of his best work yet.
Teaming up with the talented Wynter Gordon for “Surge,” the A-side to the EP, Clockwork has created an alluring original that is both fantastically funky and unquestionably charming. “Tremor,” the B-side to the EP, is equally enticing, making use of a flavorful electro house drop and a swirling, synth-laden build up. Clockwork stays true to his “big bad bassline” mantra with his forthcoming Surge EP. Stay tuned for the official release on February 12th, and click past the break to hear both tracks.
