JAM OF THE WEEK: Rainer + Grimm – Tempted [VIDEO]
Toronto based duo Rainer + Grimm have had my attention since they first came into the scene in 2014. After meeting at music school and bonding over their love of club music, Rainer Millar Blanchaer and Jeff Crak came together first with a string of successful bootleg remixes that lit the blogosphere on fire and landed them several Hype Machine #1s. Their skill and popularity has only grown since then.
With some already massive accomplishments under their collective belt including Rainer’s co-writing credits on ‘Wicked Games‘ and ‘Party & the After Party‘ for The Weeknd as well as on Drake‘s ‘Shot For Me‘ – and Grimm having worked as assistant engineer to Noah ’40’ Shebib on Drake’s Grammy winning ‘Nothing Was The Same‘ album – R+G continue to wow audiences worldwide.
