Rimer London: Influenced by Sly Stone, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Acid House, Giorgio Moroder and Kraftwerk, producer Rimer London from Amsterdam, bought his first synthesizer when he turned 16 and started making tracks with 2 tapedecks, a drum machine and his new synth. After playing several instruments in as many different bands, Rimer hooked-up with Bas Bron, a.k.a. Bastian, Seymour Bits, Gifted and many other guises, and the two formed electro-techno cooperation Comtron. Their first album, Follow The Money was released in 2007 through the Rush Hour imprint in Amsterdam and received rave-reviews. The album got noticed by Kraftwerk who invited them to play as their support act. In the same year Rimer got signed to Magnetron Music and released his first solo E.P. Sugar Booger under the Rimeroni Vumani alias.
In 2008 Rimer (now under the name of Rimer London) formed Electro-pop group Le Le together with graphic designer/producer Parra and rapper/singer Faberyayo from the popular Dutch band “De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig”. They first released the single “La Bouche” with a quick follow up double A-sided single called “Skinny Jeans” and “Hard” it was an instant hit, both songs found themselves in high rotation on Dutch and Belgium television and radio and the formation took off. The third single called “Breakfast” gave them international fame and dj’s all over the World picked it up. Their debut album Flage on Magnetron was a huge success and got a worldwide re-release in 2010 by German label Gomma.
Meanwhile, Rimer was slowly cooking his solo-project, Rimer London. The very well received Intercity E.P. was released in 2009 and two tracks from it have made it to the self titled album that’s about to see the light. Go Away and Intercity showcased Rimer’s deeply rooted love for Italo and Techno and he continues on that path. But there’s so much more to the Rimer London album, Pop, Dub, Wave and House as can be heard on the 2010 single release of Squaring The Triangle. Very well constructed but never turning into producers-music. Leaving you with a melancholic feel, the type of melancholy that leaves you both happy and sad.
