It’s been a very, very good year for the skinny-white-boy producers of the world. At the top of the pile shines one in particular: RL Grime (who is currently on tour with a bunch of other skinny white dudes. Brilliant.) Henry Steinway won our artist of the year in our 2012 recap and, judging by the past seven months since then, is on a warpath to take the title once again at the end of 2013. His latest EP High Beams, out today on Fool’s Gold, was a long awaited package from the wunderkid and is a bonafide selection of club weapons at their most volatile.
