Tim Grube and Mike Hovsepian in VENOM
A distance of several thousand miles hasn’t stopped the combined talents of Miami’s Tim Grube and Los Angeleno Mike Hovsepian developing a substantial following in whip-quick time. Grube & Hovsepian are back this month with their first song-based outing – the beautiful ‘Venom’, which features the siren-like vocal allure of Tiffany Johnston.
Since becoming part of Markus Schulz’s management project Schulz Music Group, Tim and Mike have performed the biggest gigs to date, including the release party for the ‘Los Angeles ’12’ album at Avalon and the WMC closing party at Space in Miami. A standout highlight in both of those sets was this precision cut slice of progressive trance.
Since debuting on Markus Schulz’s Global DJ Broadcast show back in March, it has quickly become a fan favourite and subsequently turned into one of Coldharbour’s most anticipated releases of the year to date. On the mix are 4-man production collective Miami Life, who have given the track a bouncier edge, combined it with a tougher, grooving feel.
This coast-to-coast musical alliance continues to advance at speed. ‘Venom’ strikes on May 7th!

What the dance press say about ‘Venom’:
Grube & Hovesepian’s latest: “masses atmosphere from start to finish”, says EDM Mag and has “exceptional vocal delivery’ for its “hang-off-every-word lyrics”. The UK’s DJ Mag thinks that “Venom’ could very well be Grube & Hovsepian’s coming-of-age track”, giving it 8.5/10 in their May issue review. Mixmag meanwhile says that “Venom’ is a never less than enthralling listen”; “is packed with the type of suck-you-in prog-trance atmosphere that’s been MIA way too long” and declares that “as the vocal debut from the pair, it’s an extremely assured one”.
