Rennie Pilgrem: Movers & Shakers

25 January, 2020 / by Matt Smith

After almost a decade-long hiatus, the ‘Godfather of Breaks’ Rennie Pilgrem returns with a whole new album overflowing with ‘banging breaks tracks plus generous helpings of mid-tempo dub, funk and hip-shaking bass lines.’

Since 2012, after 20 years releasing work on his own TCR imprint and travelling the world DJing, Rennie Pilgrem took a back seat from making music and instead switched his creative energies towards visual art.

In 2013 he was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. He is now creates minimal, graphic and often witty takes on ordinary life presented in an extraordinary way. He has exhibited at several prestigious art fairs and galleries in the UK and abroad, and his work is collected internationally.

As 2019 drew to a close, Rennie started to get back his music bug. He had always continued DJing, both in the UK and abroad. He hadn’t made any music of his own for the best part of a decade and decided that rather than doing just one track, he would make a full album.

In addition to the 13 new tracks on Movers & Shakers, Rennie will be releasing singles which include exclusive remixes.

On compatible streaming platforms, the album is accompanied with vibrant original artwork by Rennie.
