  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.

Titling his third album Grimm Reality might seem to point to a new autobiographical streak in this Swiss producer/electronic musician, but that would be too simple. It’s up to the listener to piece together a version of Grimm’s reality from mere hints: the wistful romance of “XY,” the tension and release of “New, Better Pain” and so on through every perfectly poised moment on this record.
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.
