Grumpy Horse debuts on his own Horse Play Recordings


Horse Play Recordings, the newly minted independent music label, is proud to announce the release of “Drugs and Money,” the debut single from its founder, the Bristol-based tech house producer, Grumpy Horse.

Grumpy Horse, known for his gritty and resonant soundscapes, has been making waves in the Bristol music scene for quite some time. “Drugs and Money” blurs the lines between tech house and techno with its unique influences and artistic ambition. The track is slated for release on August 18th, 2023.

Produced in the intimacy of his own stable, Grumpy Horse presents an innovative sonic journey, complete with his original vocals. The track’s production is marked by a dedication to authenticity and a drive to explore new territories within the Tech house genre.

Speaking about the song, Grumpy Horse explains, “Drugs and Money is all about the exploration of human desires and excesses, and the inherent contradictions within society. It’s a commentary on the relentless pursuit of wealth and hedonism, set against the backdrop of pulsating rhythms and haunting melodies.”

Horse Play Recordings is a testament to Grumpy Horse’s dedication to cultivating a space for true artistic expression and independent sound. The label aims to pave a unique path in the music industry, fostering creativity, and pushing the boundaries of the Tech house genre.

With the release of “Drugs and Money,” both Grumpy Horse and Horse Play Recordings are setting the stage for an exciting new chapter in Tech house music. The track promises to deliver a dance floor weapon with galloping grooves and circuit-bent synths that resonates with both the current musical landscape and the trailblazing spirit of the genre’s future.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
