Grum’s debut album, Heartbeats, was released in May 2010. A confident debut record, it was compared to Daft Punk’s Discovery and MYLO’s ‘Destroy Rock & Roll.’ The album went to number 1 in the US iTtunes Electronic Dance Charts, and by the end of 2010 he was named ‘Best Electronic Artist of the year’ by UK iTunes.
By 2012 Grum was well on his way to mainroom success, playing the Creamfields mainstage with Tiesto, the mainstage at Ultra w/ Fatboy Slim and Above & Beyond as well as playing sell out dates in Paris, Barcelona, Australia and Brazil amongst others.
Grum returned in 2013 with “Everytime” the debut single from his second album “Human Touch”. “The Theme” – his second single was one of Annie Mac (BBCR1) ‘Singles of 2013′, and ‘Electro Single Of The Month’ in Mixmag, while his third single “In Love” was released in January 2014 and reached number 35 in the Beatport Top 100, number 8 in the Beatport Progressive House Chart, as well as number 3 in the DMC World Buzz Chart. A fourth single “Tears” which reached number 2 in the DMC World Buzz Charts, number 9 in the Cool Cuts Charts, was released on Armin Van Buuren’ label Trice Recordings. Then in May 2014 Grum had the honour of making first ‘Essential Mix’ for Radio 1.
What do Billboard and the sleepless city of New York hold in common? For one, they have all bowed to the uplifting talents of Norwegian breakout Fehrplay. With his name cemented to the lifeblood of progressive house and the global club circuit adding to his 360-degree explosion, 2013 has set the young European trailblazer into one of his most prolific streaks to date.
Never one to talk down his Norwegian roots, the life and times of Jonas Fehr have not been limited to one global locality. Taking to the dance mecca that is Manchester as a student, the young producer quickly found solstice in the city’s underground nightspots. Upon realization that education could never provide the hands-on experience Jonas craved, a degree in music production was promptly replaced by a first-hand ascent of the UK club circuit. The pieces would form together to see ‘Meow’, Jonas’s breakout offering, rack a considerable milestone and the first of many seals of approval from Pete Tong. An infectious landmark by all counts, Fehrplay has gone on to emulate that initial thrill of industry approval into his every musical venture.
But for all his musical triumphs, a spot on Pryda Friends buoyant roster of talent has not hurt the young Norwegian’s chances at reclaiming the world of progressive house with unprecedented force. Whilst championing the sound of his peers within the Pryda Friends stronghold, his own sound has continued to differentiate and added to the label’s powerful grasp on the digital market. A concoction of cinematic scores and melodic composure, his lust to evoke emotion in a coherent manner for the club floor has made this a tough sound to box, but one that continues to thrill amid the cookie cutter generation. With an ethos that a good melody and poignant groove can reign indestructible, the journey from 2012’s ‘Incognito’ to ‘I Can’t Stop,’ ‘Phantom’ and the deep and melodic ‘Monte’ has kept fans and industry tastemakers in awe. From outspoken euphoria to cuts from the playbooks of deep house and techno, his studio repertoire to date plays with unlimited calibre.
In the club, Jonas has shown an encyclopedic musical knowledge. Relishing the opportunity to play personal favourites, new and old, and cuts that never quite broke into the digital market, his ability to draw music from across the dance music spectrum has proven an undeniable asset. It is this approach has seen him successfully captivate the American market with an agenda as educational to fans new-and-old as it is indicative to fuelling global club land and its ever-expanding dance floors.
His industry laurels, however, are yet to be rested upon. Expect high profile collaborations, further North American unearthing, an extended global spree and a considerable return to the uplifting progressive sensibilities that first established Fehrplay as one of the hottest Scandinavian talents to not only reclaim, but redefine the sound of modern progressive house.
Based in San Francisco, 23-year-old Spencer Brown creates forward-thinking dance music that defies quick-shifting industry trends, carving his fresh take on the progressive space by creating earworms that incorporate authenticity with accessibility.
After Above & Beyond discovered Spencer through his graceful debut release “Chalice EP” on Avicii’s LE7ELS (garnering over 1.5 million listens), they invited Spencer to release on their legendary Anjunabeats with his emotional expedition “Vernal EP” label debut in 2017.
Having received DJ & radio support from Above & Beyond, Avicii, Axwell, Pete Tong, Benny Benassi, Danny Howard, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Gareth Emery, Electric Area, BPM, and more, Spencer is becoming a regular face of Anjunabeats with multiple forthcoming 2017 releases including his 3-track Embarcadero EP and a remix for Seven Lions & Jason Ross’s “Higher Love.”
Outside of the studio, Spencer is no stranger to the road, having made his live debut at Avicii’s 2013 Hollywood Bowl show, leading to extensive North American touring with Avicii and CAZZETTE – all the while studying electrical & computer engineering at the prestigious Duke University (where he graduated with distinction in 2016 in Electrical & Computer Engineering).
With over 10 years of DJing under his belt, Spencer’s live brilliance is rooted in his renovation of the classical ideology focusing on reading the room and defiance of premade sets to create an unparalleled journey, as demonstrated by his 2017 Miami Music Week performance where he played a 2-hour set comprised of solely original productions and private remixes.
His pioneering sets, like his New Year’s Day Newport Beach performance supporting Above & Beyond, have given birth to an ever-growing 2017 touring schedule, which includes appearances at Electric Zoo, Global Dance, and NYC’s legendary Output.
Spencer’s relentless work ethic and production prolificacy, crystal clear vision, and forward thinking compositions forecast a breakthrough as he continues to deliver ambitious performances that can stand the test of time.
