Hailing from a small village in Switzerland, Dimlite is the main alias of musician/producer Dimitri Grimm, who also releases gorgeous music under the moniker Misel Quitno (more tripped out lo-fi material, with a very cinematic 60s sound) and as The Slapped Eyeballers (a pop-rock duo formed back in 2006 with Balt Mirczok on vocals).
On his productions he creates intense aural environments that blend real instruments, voice, samples from any thinkable source, field recordings and boundless electronic trickery. His sound integrates a vast array of styles, leading him to be classified alternatively as minimalist, experimental DIM, instrumental hiphop or glitchy electronica. In 2003, Dimlite released a first EP, A/DD, followed by two albums, Runbox Weathers (2005) and This Is Embracing (2006), both on the Berlin-based label Sonar Kollektiv.
At the moment, Dimlite is playing shows throughout Europe, promoting his latest record, Prismic Tops, released last May on Egon’s record label Now Again. The following track is taken off Prismic Tops, which you can stream HERE.
