Grumby "Used 2 Want U"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Steeped in emotion, Grumby's "Used 2 Want U" is a restlessly moody piece of electronic production. Beginning with harps and rich piano chords, the Brooklyn duo at first weave slow but heavy-handed drums into the track, before eventually double-timing the pace with energetic claps and rising percussion rolls. Led by the soulful chops of a re-pitched voice, "Used 2 Want U" rises and falls in grand sweeps during its run, each section offering a new bit of sharp percussion, a touching melody, or a wash of floating pads. After giving the track a spin below, Grumby's recent gorilla-themed video for the track—the second of its kind from the pair—can be watched after the jump.
