A member of Los Angeles collective WeDidIt, RL Grime's music fails to fall under any one bracket.
Sure, comparisons to Hudson Mohawke and Rustie have been made, but - really - all that links these three artists is a love of hip hop production and vivid, porous colour.
Stepping in to remix Kanye West's 'Mercy' last year, RL Grime saw his profile boosted enormously. Now focussing on solo material, new single 'Core' drops shortly and it comes equipped with a stunning video.
Directed by David Rudnick and Daniel Swan, the video for 'Core' matches the outlandish music to vivid visuals. Essentially a war zone in some far flung corner of the galaxy, there's a retro-Futurist feel in line with classic Anime.
