Grum is Scotland’s next great electronic producer. “Runaway” is his debut single.
With DJ dates such as Vice (NYC), Fleche D’Or (Paris), Fairground (Sheffield) and a whole Australian tour under his belt, Edinburgh-born Grum is already hot property.
For someone who produced his first track in the spring of last year, his rise to prominence has been one of Justice-style proportions. Since tracks such as “Heartbeats” first started appearing on blogs like Discodust last summer, he has remixed the likes of Friendly Fires, Late of The Pier, Moulinex and Tim Healey. Recent support of his Friendly Fires mix from A-listers such as Kissy Sellout, Rob Da Bank, Eddy Temple-Morris and the Filthy Dukes will guarantee that this Ibiza-in-a-good way dancefloor killer is destined for greatness, despite the band’s refusal…
“Runaway” is one of those deceptively brilliant pieces of music that, like Daft Punk’s “Around the World”, swirls around in your brain refusing to leave. Blissful, bass-heavy and undeniably cool this is the perfect anecdote to heavy-handed Electro-house. The kind of record that, like Mylo’s “In My Arms” will survive listening on repeat all through the summer. And with his debut album due in May, this summer is highly likely to belong to him.
