Conspiracy theories have been running wild around the disappearance of the second LP from Grum, “Deep State”. Announced late in 2018, the album vanished. While he cannot confirm nor deny some of the more colorful theories around the album’s withdrawal, Grum and Anjunabeats are pleased to announce that “Deep State” is back, revamped for 2019.
The 10 tracks of “Deep State” mirror the light and dark moments of the unsettling times we live in. The album is a showcase of Grum’s ability to craft pitch-black progressive and immersive vocal pop, offering a refined take on the current state of progressive trance. These reflections can be easily captured while listening to the throwback 90s rave vibes of “Stay” and the adrenaline-pumping synths of “Altered State”; both are my personal favorites from the album.
