House music duo Rainer + Grimm teamed up with UK artist Plain English on their new single “Talk Of The Town”. The collaboration delivers a unique pairing of vocals from the rapidly expanding grime movement with a drum and bass inspired dance floor beat. Rainer + Grimm wanted to pay homage to UK house and garage with “Talk of the Town,” which serves as a testament to their ability to create a variety of different genres while staying true to their own sound. Along with the song, the artists have released a video that further evokes their inspiration and tribute to UK grime. “This video was done a lot more guerrilla-style than any of our last videos but turned out to be our favourite to date,” says the duo. “With the vocals, the beat and the video all come together better than we could have ever imagined.” “Talk of the Town” is out on Rainer + Grimm’s imprint Bleeding Hearts Club.
Hailing from Toronto, Rainer Millar Blanchaer and Jeff Crake met while attending music school and instantly bonded over their love for club music. The project known as Rainer + Grimm launched in 2014 with the goal of bringing the infamous Toronto R&B scene and the underground dance music scene together, and began with the duo releasing their bootlegs on Soundcloud. The blogosphere ultimately ended up being their golden ticket when their remix of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” soared to #1 on The Hype Machine and was one of the most blogged about tracks of the year. Doors kept opening for Rainer + Grimm afterward, including more Hype Machine #1s with their rendition of Gold Coast’s “Break My Fall” and their first original song “Talk to Me.” The world is becoming more and more familiar with Rainer + Grimm as the duo perform at events across the globe, from Splash House to Digital Dreams, and their future is looking brighter than ever. Stay tuned for new music from Rainer + Grimm this year!
