A few years ago, a good remix or a good mash up was enough to get a producer on the map permanently (see: Hardwell). But these days there are only so many outlets that will hold a non-official remix stream, and more aspiring artists trying to make it than ever. That's where artists like Rainer + Grimm show that they understand the landscape of electronic music, and have the talent to make it. Gaining over 11 million plays on Soundcloud with their remixes of The Weeknd, Years & Years and Sam Smith, the Toronto-based production duo has put out their first original track.
With "Talk To Me," Rainer + Grimm have translated their feel-good house style into a full original track featuring vocals from Melanie. A combination of laid-back and groovy, "Talk To Me" is infectious and multidimensional, and straddles the ground between pop's adaptation of dance music and trending house music.
