Grimes: Building Beats From The Ground Up

When electro-pop producer Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) visited the KEXP studios, we witnessed a young artist full of energy, humility and creativity. Enveloped in a fashionable oversized coat, she plopped down on the floor in the middle of the studio, surrounded herself with equipment, and began making magic with pedals and knobs. Her ethereal vocals — rising and falling one moment, weaving and darting another — and heady mix of sounds left us feeling a bit intoxicated. Grimes is a compelling performer, and we caught her at the beginning of what is certain to be an incredible journey.
