When New York City-based DJ/producer Henry Steinway combines hip-hop and electro for the genre known as "trap" he dons the moniker RL Grime.
After debuting the project in 2011 with a series of internet uploads, RL Grime became official with the EP Grapes, released in 2012 by Wedidit Collective. More free uploads followed, including bootleg remixes of Rihanna's "Pour It Up," Chief Keef's "Sosa," and Kanye West's "Mercy." In 2013, the Fool's Gold label released the High Beams EP with a guest appearance from rapper Problem. The album Void followed in 2014 and featured rapper Big Sean, EDM group Boys Noize, and indie act How to Dress Well. ~ David Jeffries
