RL Grime provides a formidable follow up to the first wave of NOVA remixes with NOVA (The Remixes Vol. 2). The second and final installment in the two-part saga of alternative takes, volume two presents listeners with 11 more innovative revamps of album inclusions like “Pressure” and “Undo.” The variant collection of remixes sees re-imaginative work from Valentino Khan, Vincent, QUIX, Devault, and more.

Also comprised of 11 tracks, volume one saw an equally able cast of producers submit NOVA reworks including 1788-L, k?d, Said the Sky, and Eptic, among others. That NOVA has yielded a total of 22 different remixes from 22 respective producers speaks to the album’s influence in the electronic sphere this year, particularly in the trap domain. NOVA quickly solidified its status as a strong sophomore showing from RL Grime immediately upon its July release, and now, the caliber of the album seems only to be affirmed anew by the abundance of NOVA remixes currently in circulation.

RL Grime‘s Nova saw the trap maestro easily surpassing the sophomore slump and further cementing his stance in the world outside basic electronica with cutting-edge sound design and allstar collaborators that included the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih, Torey Lanez, and beyond. The LP was well received by a wide spread of fans, quickly climbing to the top of multiple charts after its official release. Nova has since inspired a good deal of interpretations from other artists, eleven of which were selected by RL Grime and his team to appear on the first official remix compilation.

A notable addition to the group is k?d, who’s become a power player in recent years since his break in to the dance music scene. He provided quite a wild take on “Rainer,” peppering the original with ricocheting synthesizers and adding his unique sound design into the mix for a sinister remake. Up-and-coming talent 1788-L also contributed a remix to the pot, transforming “Era” into chaotic, dubstep piece designed to break necks on the dancefloor.

1788-L is back to what made the enigma so popular in the first place: remixes. This time, the sophisticated producer tackles the trap stylings of RL Grime on a remix of “Era,” a single from the No. 1 Billboard Dance album, NOVA. Combining elements of trap and heavy bass, the remix extraordinaire computerizes the festival anthem original into three different drops of glitch-filled dubstep and psy-trance.

2018 proved to be a successful year for for 1788-L, collaborating with some of the biggest names in dance music and releasing his debut extended play, S E N T I E N C E, on Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint. The artist also recently ended a fall touring stint, supporting Ekali and REZZ in select cities.

Double, double trap and trouble, fire burn and beats bubble on RL Grime‘s Halloween mix series. New RL Grime music and Halloween are mutually inclusive and have been ever since 2012, when the trap tastemaker dropped off the inaugural installment in what would go on to become an October tradition. Since then, the NOVA producer’s Halloween mix has been rife with bone-rattling bass and annually released in time for Halloweekend play for the past seven years.

Grime’s Halloween mix has cultivated somewhat of a cult following over the years, and now that the seventh mix in the sonic saga has arrived, Dancing Astronaut ensures that what to play next on the aux once “Halloween VII” times out will be the least of costumed celebrators’ worries, by revisiting each of RL Grime’s past Halloween mixes.


“Halloween VII” sees Shaq, RL Stine, and Jake Foushee hop in the cut alongside Grime to collaboratively stagger shiver-worthy drops throughout the mix. A heavy hybrid of hip-hop selects and trap-oriented inclusions, “Halloween VII” provides a forceful soundtrack to weekend festivities, with Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and more receiving nods. With no calories, no sugar, and no consequential hangover, the one-hour mix bears absolutely no tricks.


The prelude to RL Grime’s sophomore album, NOVA, “Halloween VI” only laid claim to one ID, despite streamers’ collective belief that Grime would use the sixth mix as a platform to debut new music from the forthcoming production. Fans later championed “Halloween VI” as the best crafted installment in the series thus far. With  Rae Sremmurd, Eprom, Post Malone, DROELOE, and more on the track list, it’s no wonder that “Halloween VI” was so warmly received.


RL Grime spiked adrenaline at “Halloween V’s” intro with a spoken intro delivered by none other than Pharrell Williams. “Halloween V” melded a series of rap-flavored releases with electronically grounded selections from GTA, Baauer, and more, making for a monstrous genre mashup. “Halloween V” additionally ushered in an advanced listen of Grime’s collaboration with Skrillex and What So Not. Grime dropped the single, entitled “Waiting,” several days later on November 3, 2016.


2015’s Halloween mix marked RL Grime’s fourth consecutive year of sinister, seasonal material. Comedian Hannibal Buress verbalizes the mix’s intro and Goosebumps author, RL Stine, makes his yearly appearance as well.


Backtrack to 2014, a time in which rising producer, Henry Steinway, was still solidifying his trap reign as RL Grime. Grime’s third annual Halloween mix predated the release of his debut album, VOID, which pulled up on the electronic scene with fervor on November 14, 2014. With his inaugural longform production looming, but still a ways off, 2013’s Halloween mix enabled RL Grime to work some unreleased magic into the mix’s track list, including the then unreleased “Monsoon.” 2013’s mix featured tunes from Mr. Carmack, Bobby Shmurda, and 2 Chainz, among others.


2013 brought an approximate 60 minutes of musical madness to streamers’ sound systems, as RL Grime followed 2012’s inaugural release of his Halloween mix series with a chilling sequel. Jam-packed with momentous drops and exhibitive of RL Grime’s deft ear for mixing, 2013’s mix was a formidable follow up to 2012’s, with releases from Drake, Gesaffelstein, Sage The Gemini, and Dog Blood.


“Happy Halloween everyone…picked out some of my favorite spooky tracks in celebration of today,” RL Grime on SoundCloud when he uploaded his inaugural Halloween mixtape. The first of the series to feature a spoken gambit from literary legend, RL Stine, Grime’s 2012 Halloween mix arrived as a humble 33-minute product comprised of just 18 tracks.

RL Grime‘s Halloween Mix is an October tradition for the trap tastemaker, who now looks ahead to the 2018 installment of the annual series. RL Grime invites those with ghoulishly good material to send their song submissions to halloween@rlgrime.com as a part of his new call for producers to submit their “scariest songs” for consideration in the spooky sonic venture.

2018 marks the seventh edition of the mix, and if the impending release follows in the fashion of the 2017 mix, then listeners can expect RL Grime to intermingle a new ID or two among the selections that will comprise the mix. Last year, the mix featured several previously unreleased cuts that would later figure on Grime’s sophomore album, NOVA. Wynwood Fear Factory’s recent announcement of RL Grime as one of its Halloweekend festival headliners should only further incite excitement among RL Grime fans for October’s arrival.

Stream RL Grime’s highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘NOVA’

Four years ago, RL Grime‘s unique sound design and production arrangements took the electronic music world by storm. Since then, many in the community have hailed Henry Alfred Steinway’s debut a masterpiece, some even going so far so to reminisce on the album as trap music’s magnum opus. Unarguably, tracks like “Scylla” and “Core” have gone on to become staples in the trap music community, just as much as they have in the EDM community at large. They created an era of producers all over the world that were hoping to embody an ounce of the raw, thumping 808s that Steinway’s early material so exuded. But, Steinway has always been one to suggest that his influence would not diminish, even without directly saying the words, his annual mixes, and festival appearances have always suggested so much.

The inception of RL Grime came at a time when electronic music was at its height in the states — Skrillex‘s Recess had just been released that spring, and deadmau5 was fresh off the summer release of his album while(1<2). and now, with a visibly changed dance landscape in the states and an assimilation of the music into the very fabric of contemporary culture — what many refer to as the post-EDM era, and an age of electronic music that dips its toes in the proverbial ponds of hip-hop and pop — RL Grime’s returned with his second album, NOVA, an effort that channels the sheer potential for the genre’s production future while also providing a range of sounds that harken back to the early material that drove his project in the beginning.

On NOVA, RL Grime’s collaborations run wild. He’s created a collection of searing coalescences of melodic rap and R&B refrains from some of  hip-hop and R&B heavyweights like Miguel, Jeremiah, Chief Keef, Tory Lanez, and Ty Dolla $ign; taking the depth of his project to unforeseen heights. Meanwhile, though Steinway’s beats are less concerned with trap than they used to be, his music’s fitting for the US festival circuit, with moments of sheer ecstasy, rolling drum’n’bass, and the same unfathomable drops the world has grown to know, love, and look forward to.

Technicolor hues, hi-definition psychedelic landscapes, and heart pumping cuts of a motorbike rider comprise the official music video for “Pressure,” notably RL Grime‘s last release leading up to the arrival of his sophomore album, NOVA, due out on July 27.

The action packed production capitalizes on visual thrill, engrossing viewers with its successive scenes of RL Grime’s biker navigating constantly contorting territory. The titillating nature of the video complements the single’s gritty, bass heavy technical constructions.

RL Grime stirs fans into a frenzy with “Light Me Up” featuring Miguel & Julia Michaels — the fourth single from his highly-anticipated NOVA LP slated for a July 27 release via WEDIDIT. Setting up to be an eclectic project from the versatile producer, Steinway melts hearts on this new project with cozy synths, comforting bells, and serene percussion elements. These elements sit beneath protagonists Miguel and Julia Michaels R&B/pop inspired vocals, adding onto the sentimentality already present in the piece. Passion exudes from the two singers’ voices, and RL Grime’s bed of production provides a natural resting place for them to glimmer and shine.

With singles such as “Pressure,” “Undo” featuring Jeremih & Tory Lanez, “I Wanna Know” featuring Daya, and now “Light Me Up,” NOVA is currently representing four distinct genres respectively bass, hip-hop, dance pop, and R&B. The producer known for his groundbreaking trap productions is showcasing skills outside previous conceptions for his second studio album and first album in the past four years.
