Ask any producer the influence behind their track and, nine times out of ten, the answer will be, ‘the dancefloor’. So, although already hell bent on signing it based on the calibre of the music alone, imagine the surprise at Renaissance HQ when Grigoré said his latest EP, Deepest Thoughts, “Is a tribute to my childhood.”
“It was really important that the 4 tracks remained together,” he continues, “it’s about the moments and feelings of growing-up, deepest thoughts in the dark of freezing nights, which I now look back on with nostalgia. I can’t express how delighted I was when Renaissance said they wanted to keep them all together as an entire EP.”
Indeed, Renaissance were keen to keep the diverse scope of Deepest Thoughts whole; besides its musical story, it underlines Grigoré’s fast-rising status, which has seen him pick-up support from the likes of Solomun (even signing to Diynamic no less), Tale Of Us, Joris Voorn, Pete Tong, H.O.S.H., Lehar (plus more) and clearly demonstrates his prodigious talent. Like many of the best producers working today, the EP warps genres, taking in melody, techno, indie, 4/4 and breaks with effortless cool.
