Beaumont steps up for the next release on Hotflush, with his ‘Never Love Me Ep’.

The young Scottish producer Michael Rintoul created a slice of hypnotic R&B dream pop on last year’s ‘Blush Reponse EP’. It was described by inimitable Brighton-based blog 20jazzfunkgreats as having produced, “by a strike of genius and inspiration”, the authentic soundtrack to “a really cool Z-series 80s thriller”.

Beaumont – Never Love Me EP on Hotflush

Beaumont steps up for the next release on Hotflush, with his ‘Never Love Me Ep’.

The young Scottish producer Michael Rintoul created a slice of hypnotic R&B dream pop on last year’s ‘Blush Reponse EP’. It was described by inimitable Brighton-based blog 20jazzfunkgreats as having produced, “by a strike of genius and inspiration”, the authentic soundtrack to “a really cool Z-series 80s thriller”.

This time round, the vocal work on the title track is reduced to a barely intelligible processed warble, which provides the scaffolding that supports the sparse drums, synth washes and plucked melody. ‘Uptown’ begins with Carpenter-esque keys of dread, but is quickly drenched in a warm shower of shimmering keys that tussles with the shuffling half-beat.

The ‘Rendez-Vouz’ could be on Mars, cosmic winds billowing, until a snaking bassline throbs into sight, Beaumont’s impeccably programmed drums playing off against the tense synths. “Star cross’d lovers” indeed upon the EP’s closer, ‘Verona Beach’, the tidal back and forth grounding, the sound of the sun setting on a Miami Vice beach, but disturbed into syncopated sense.

The bonus track ‘Adrift’, pushes off onto a different kind of aural quest, lost in an ocean of sweeping sound, with only the skittering snares behind your sail, and the uncertainty of the key changes to steer your fate.

Graeme Shepherd aka Grum shouldn’t need any introduction. But with a list of credits like this amassed since the release of his last single, ‘Can’t Shake That Feeling’, in April, introductions are necessary.

Returning with his own brand of sun-kissed ‘cosmic-electro’, Grum proves once again that he cares little about the critiques. Serving only to the good-times with a release of the brilliant but carefree single, ‘Through The Night’.

Future disco donned out in stonewash and shoulder pads. ‘Through The Night’, unashamedly 80s, is as much a well-penned song – Hall & Oates anybody? – as it is big-room floorfiller; All vamped up synths, rising riffs and driving electro-bass.

Grum’s vivid 80s referencing in ‘Through The Night’ hasn’t gone unnoticed by the video production house, General Assembley, either. Brought in once again to make a Grum music video (GA also directed ‘Can’t Shake This Feeling’), Grum’s music has inspired a brilliantly realized and hilarious ‘Brookheimer/bromance’ pastiche, which premiered this week on Popjustice.

“Through The Night is your classic, rough and tumble bromance. That age old cop meets cop tale. We were aiming to more directly address some of the latent issues that seem to be at play in a lot of the overly macho “buddy” movies of the 80′s in which the men appeared to always be much closer to their partner on the force than to any of the women they’re purported to be dating. One part Bruckheimer/Bay, one part Michael Mann and Friedkin. Throw in a bit of Jeff Foxworthy for good measure and there you have it.”

A producer whose tracks frequently win support from the likes of Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Zane Lowe, Nick Grimshaw and Steve Smart to name a few, ‘Through The Night’ is another Grum master class in dance.

Released 4th October, ‘the original sits alongside a full club mix from Grum, the ‘Swiss Menergy’ Remix and a remix treatments from Tom De Neef.

Choose your day getting just that little bit better. Choose Grum.
