“There’s a type of electronica that works well at a pre-gaming session; during that unexpected-but-much-needed one night stand and throughout a party aftermath the next day. A perfect example is “Refuse”—a new silky soultronic single from NYC-based duo Grumby that features sensual vocals from Hari Mint…” View More

“Steeped in emotion, Grumby’s “Used 2 Want U” is a restlessly moody piece of electronic production.

“Last Thursday night at Baby’s All Right, the flashing lights against the backdrop of the stage smokily outlined the performers in flickering blue silhouettes, setting an ethereal vibe. When headliner Grumby hit the stage, recognizable chords to one of their very first tracks, ‘Mt Fuji’ came in hitting hard and bringing a full, organic sense to the song. It created a mood that was both dreamlike and vibrant within the crowd, who recognized not only the track, but the meticulous detail, creativity, and work that went into manifesting it in a live performance.” Read More

They certainly have their foot in the door of the Brooklyn music scene with regular appearances at Pianos…” Read More


“And that passion is really part of what’s so wonderful about Grumby—a Brooklyn-based production duo whose first and foremost goal is enveloping you in their trippy beats out of a drug-induced dream… But if Mt.

“Full disclosure: I can’t get enough of GRUMBY. The tandem of Brooklyn-based producers supplied what still stands as one of 2014’s best tracks in “Used 2 Want U” back in May, but that forever-ago release hasn’t stopped me from returning to the record every few weeks. Yeah, it sucks that I can label a five-month time-lapse as “forever ago,” and yet that’s the truth when it comes to music/most everything nowadays.” Read More
