Dimlite’s two EPs for Now-Again, Prismic Tops (2009) and My Human Wears Acedia Shreds (2010), captured an artist in flux: a producer fleeing from his loosely hip-hop, jazz and electronica-infused early material and towards a more realized world of sound. With Grimm Reality, Dimlite incorporates the techniques and artistic attitude of two of
his alter-egos (Misel Quitno, a fanatic in low-fidelity electro-acoustic composition, the Slapped Eyeballers, a two-headed, world-rock-folk combo) to color a progressive sonic vision. Check!
Likewise, looking for the remains of a hip-hop influence, or a connection to what's happening on modern-day dance floors, won’t yield much here. The precedents that spring
to mind are all cherished outsiders – Neu, The Residents, Beefheart, Philip Glass - footnotes in mainstream music history but, in an altogether preferable parallel universe,
titans of the recent past. This isn't the patchwork of a tasteful record collector though – Dimlite eschews samples entirely, imbuing his music with the spirit of his heroes but never once grabbing for their sound. In so doing, he creates music that is highly singular and – despite its relatively ancient influences – altogether new.
