grumArtist: Grum
Release: The Touch 
Label: Heartbeats  
Genre: Dance 

“The Touch” is the fifth single from Grum’s forthcoming album.

His previous singles “Everytime”, “The Theme”, “In Love” and “Tears” have been hammered across the board at BBC Radio 1. From Zane to Annie Mac, Pete Tong to B Traits, Monki to Danny Howard, the support for Grum’s original music has been incredible. If you add in his remixes for the likes of Shift K3y, Sigma, Chromeo & Martin Garrix he’s one of the most consistently played producer/remixers right now.

And it’s not just radio that love him. The DJ support on his recent work reads like a who’s who in club land: Solomun, Hot Since 82, Scuba, Sasha, Disclosure, Above & Beyond, DJ T, Bookashade, Axwell, Drums of Death, Slam, Russ Chimes, Tube & Berger, Huxley, Coyu, Joyce Muniz, Leftwing & Kody, Groove Armada, John Digweed, Mano Le Tough, Doctor Dru, Tensnake, Axwell, Digitalism, EDX, Mark Knight, Funk D’Void… the list goes on. 

“The Touch” is arguably Grum’s deepest, houseiest release to date. But of couse, since this is Grum, we’re not talking about some po-faced, chin stroking dull-strumental, this is house music that will put a smile on your face, love in your heart and a warm glow on the dancefloor.

Remixes come from Sébastien Léger (tough, jacking house), Solaris Heights (Sasha style deepness) and Andre Sobota (killer modern progressive).
