“This is about remembering our humanity, which perhaps we lost a little bit over the last couple of years - maybe we can get a bit of it back in the dark, under some strobe lights.”
'Unreality', the new album from Scottish producer Graeme Shepherd, a.k.a Grum, is out now on Anjunabeats.
Many of our Anjunafamily will know the name Grum. He's part of our family for the best part of seven years, supplying a treasure trove of 80s-flavoured progressive trance to our catalogue. Over the past two years, he's been hard at work on the follow up to his 2019 album 'Deep State'. And we're chuffed to say officially, his latest artist LP is out now.
'Unreality' is Graeme's most reflective work to date, putting human connection in a digital age under the microscope. A story in two halves, 'Unreality' is introspective, ideas-driven and song heavy, holding a mirror to Graeme’s own emotional journey over the last two years.
Leading the charge is the album's lead single, 'Disconnected' (feat. Sealine), which you can listen to now on your streaming platform of choice.
'Disconnected' started out as an acid instrumental inspired by New Order and The Chemical Brothers, elevated by Daniel Sealine's gritty vocal. In another universe, I'd be playing this on the main stage at Creamfields.
Made using environmentally-friendly production methods and 100% recyclable materials, 'Unreality' is available to pre-order now on 2x12" black vinyl via the Anjuna Music Store.
