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.

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.

Meanwhile, Rimer was slowly cooking his solo-project, Rimer London. As something of a synth-god, with a deep-rooted love for Italo and Techno, he continues on that path. But there’s so much more to the Rimer London’s music, he touches the genres Pop, Dub, Wave and House, and everything is very well constructed but never turns into producers-music. Rimer London leaves you with a melancholic feel, the type of melancholy that leaves you both happy and sad.
