London Artist Runrummer shares a remix of her 2020 hit ‘I Like Getting High’
Fresh off the back of her latest release with renowned electronic label Kitsuné Musique, Runrummer returns with a remix of her 2020 hit ‘I Like Getting High’. The track reflects a conversation about the modern musician and distorted ideas of success, remixed by Tommy Goes Harderrr (aka Tom Salmon from Black Star Liner, Mercury Prize Nominee 1999) into an 8-minute earworm of melodic downtempo house, crossing the boundary into intelligent dance music. Recorded at the Rattle Collective and mastered by John Greenham (Billie Eilish, Ashnikko, Röyksopp), this is an outstanding collaboration and a real powerhouse of a song.
Runrummer is the alias of 26-year-old Livi Morris; a songwriter and producer who grew up on the outskirts of Birmingham, praised for creating effortlessly laid-back melodies and lyrics tinged with a swagger found on Lily Allen records. A passionate member of the LGBTQ+ community, many of her lyrics confront struggles with sexuality, gender identity and mental health, while her music comes from a combination of classic 80s legends alongside contemporary artists like Gorillaz, Elder Island and Flume. Officially tipped by BBC Introducing as “one to watch”, she opened the virtual Introducing Stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend during the pandemic, alongside sets for London Pride, Liverpool Soundcity and festival stages across France. Her latest music has featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, New Pop UK, Wholesome and Peach playlists among others, garnering international attention from Canada to South Korea.
Tommy Goes Harderrr is the pseudonym of Tom Salmon from Black Star Liner; a leading name in the Asian underground scene of the 1990s who were nominated for the Mercury Prize with their second album ‘Bengali Bantam Youth Experience’ in 1999. Tommy is an art-pop-punk-rock-awakened-existential-spiritual-alchemist, born from the infinite universe where everything that can happen will happen. He is the Spirit of the Above World, coming into physical form high on Mount Shasta, rising from the lost continent of Lemuria and the Quantum World.
This remix is a first official release for Tom under his new name and it represents his first foray back into music since the early 2000s. It is a mighty homecoming and a much-welcomed return.
