Ever since this whole trap thing blew up, RL Grime has been one of the names that keeps popping up, be it on mixes, remixes, e-mixes, threemixes, or wee! mixes. Who'd have thunk that all this would emerge from the experimental side project of electro producer Clockwork.
Either way, there hasn't been a new track from him for a few months. The world, particularly its bass-hungry internet dwellers, craves more RL, and they're not going to find what they need in the pages of a Scholastic catalog. Well, calm yourselves. We've got a fix for you right here.
"Wanted to thank everyone for the support over the past year, its been amazing. I have a bunch of new RL on the horizon but in the meantime, here's a free single to tide you over. :) #FLOOD"
We also managed to squeeze a few "this or that's" out of RL before he descended back into the crypt.
