It may be a good three (and a bit) months until the end-of-year charts start flooding in, but you can probably put your money on Grum’s latest release featuring in quite a few. Something About You is the follow-up to the Leeds-based producer’s Trine EP, which wowed us back in June, and it’s got plenty of that Grum charm that we know and love.
Put simply, what makes Something About You special is the crossing of genres. It’s a trance track at heart, with a healthy dose of progressive trance vibes that would make late-’90s Sasha very proud. There’s some brooding synth lines, big brash leads, and yes, that is a rolling bassline you hear. But there’s also proper taste of deep house thrown in for good measure, notably in the pitched-down vocal sample that provides the pièce de résistance to the whole track. Uplifting fans and progressive house aficionados alike are going bonkers over this one, and it’s easy to see why. Backed by the slightly darker and more trancey feel of First Contact, Something About You is another fine example of why Grum is well on his way to becoming one of the biggest names in dance music.
