Grimblee, from Utah, has been slaying faces at events and dropping a continuous string of releases. Some of which we were able to procure two exclusives and a small interview with Gilbert, himself. We, personally, have booked Grimblee for an event this summer ( www.filthofjuly.com ) and everybody who attended the festival really enjoyed his fresh brand of electronic music head cheese. This new “Big Cheese” has been performing (and producing) all over the states with the likes of Mr.Vandal, Yheti, Gjones, and many more which you will hear about shortly, hereafter.
His style is, well, unpredictable. One minute he composes electronic soundscapes that seem right out of an elevator, and the next he is making heavy hitting dubstep or, in this case, trap. One thing that stays consistent is his quality audio and tasty hooks.
