Things that have changed since I last blogged:
We have a Conservative Prime Minister.
Journey have become massively popular.
People are excited to see The A-Team.
All the evidence is there, we are now in the 80s, so there's no better time to enjoy Grum's new single, "Through The Night", an exceptional piece of retro electro.
The video sums up JUST how 80s the song is- it's like Top Gun and Magnum PI finally acted on those feelings they've secretly been having the whole time- but that's only if you weren't already aware from the synth sounds and a Toto sample for the vocals.
Grum is a Leeds-based one man production maestro who, fortunately, is very aware of his nostalgic sound and milks it just the right amount. You can hear that classic Giorgio Moroder sound in the synth washes he puts on nearly all his work (listen to he remixes for more examples).
Not sure how this new single will appeal to the clubbers of today, it's almost too pleasant to dance to, but I know I'll be listening to it a lot.
