Exclusive: GRiZ drops jarring dubstep remix of Freddy Todd’s ‘Audible Edibles’

This post was originally published on this site

Funk master extraordinaire GRiZ has received worldwide recognition for pioneering an enthralling, idiosyncratic genre of music that is known for its captivating electronic beats accompanied by soulful melodies on saxophone. He has produced infectious originals such as “Good Times Roll,” “Gotta Push On,” and “My Friends and I,” all from his latest hit album, Good Will Prevail, released in September of 2016.

A true musical maestro, GRiZ tends to experiment with an array of different techniques while still infusing his signature style into his creations. In his latest release, GRiZ brings listeners something different with an energetic dubstep remix of Freddy Todd’s “Audible Edibles.” The funk master’s take on Todd’s bruising original brings the single to new heights as he incorporates eerie, distorted vocal samples, prominent builds with intense waves of escalating synths, and an intriguing contrast between choppy excerpts and longer undulations of paralyzing bass.

GRiZ’s remix of “Audible Edibles” can be downloaded for free here.

This year, GRiZMAS kicks off on December 5th in support of Little Kids Rock — an organization that brings music education programs and instruments to underserved public schools nationwide. The charity will receive 100% of the proceeds from every charitable GRiZMAS event.

GRiZ Surprises Fans With Second Installment of ‘Chasing the Golden Hour Part 2’

This post was originally published on this site

GRiZ surprised listeners today with the second installment of the mixtape Chasing the Golden Hour. This release follows a massive weekend featuring three back to back sold-out performances, including two Red Rocks headliners. In 2015, GRiZ amazed fans with Chasing the Golden Hour Pt. 1. Straying from his usual style, the free release spread like wildfire and amassed millions of streams across the internet.

GRiZ aims to recreate the carefree feeling when it’s just about sunset on the perfect summer evening, when everything is the most beautiful shimmering tint of gold. Chasing The Golden Hour is that magical moment; it is sweet summer in music form. There’s something in the mixtape for everyone – the saxophone-playing revolutionary stepped out of his comfort zone with this surprise release and created songs with hints of Hip Hop, Soul, Dance and R&B. Featuring a blend of instrumental tracks and minimal beats, the mixtape perfectly reflects the laid back and serene feelings GRiZ has been curating for years.

GRiZ shares chill 4/20 ballad with ProbCause & Jaye Pryme, ‘Smoke That’

Although GRiZ released a full 13-track Good Will Continue (Remixes) project just a little more than a week ago, the Colorado-based future funk artist has been busy in his home studio collaborating with some of his friends. After all, Grant Kwiecinski, the man behind GRiZ, is known for regularly hosting live studio feeds on his Facebook page for his beloved fan base, the most recent of which was a jam session hosted at his flat in the Rockies.

“Smoke That,” out Aug. 28, is lighthearted downtempo track that truly speaks to Grant’s love of the ganja. Produced on the national 4/20 holiday with close collaborators ProbCause and Jaye Pryme, the track features all the beautiful funk elements GRiZ has become widely known for, including a saxophone melody and futuristic synth chords, along with some chill candy-glitch samples. The result is a fun and lovable ballad that highlights Pryme’s angelic chorus vocals and ProbCause’s hip-hop lyrics on the verses.

GRiZ – Wicked (Dirty Audio Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

GRiZ’s funk-fueled ‘Wicked’ gets the rowdy raw bass treatment from Dirty Audio. The next remix in his repertoire, following a stellar rework of DJ Snake and Yellow Claw’s “Ocho Cinco,” turns the All Good Records head honcho’s hit into a dancefloor firestarter. A bombastic bass take on the funk-fueled original, the LA-based talent stays true to his unapologetic, festival-focused sound.

Listen to Ephwurd’s driving bass remix of GRiZ & Big Gigantic’s ‘Good Times Roll’

This post was originally published on this site

After the wild success of his most recent LP, Good Will Prevailand the supporting tour in 2016, GRiZ has decided to continue the movement with a sequel: the Good Will Continue tour. On top of that, producer duo Ephwurd (comprised of Datsik and Bais Haus) released an absolutely savage remix of GriZ and Big Gigantic‘s “Good Times Roll” to drum up more excitement for the tour.

The original track — a soulful tune that’s a perfect mesh of GRiZ and Big G’s signature funky styles — is thrown for a loop in Ephwurd’s remix. The duo’s bass house remix of the album’s standout track is chaotic in the best possible way. Though it starts off slow and soulful like the original, the track quickly picks up the pace, dropping into upbeat, driving bass. In between choruses, Ephwurd slows it back down, emphasizing the original track’s passionate vocals and brassy instrumentals.

The remix has hit just in time for the syndication of the duo’s Eph’d Up Radio which will be broadcast on iHeartRadio/Evolution. The Show will air bimonthly at midnight EDT on the second and fourth Fridays starting Friday, June 30. Listeners can expect a rollicking hour packed with tunes from Hi-Lo, Chocolate Puma, Diplo, and of course some surprises from the duo themselves.

Check out the dates for GriZ’s upcoming tour here and Ephwurd’s here.

GRiZ begins rolling out first phase of 2017 fall tour, ‘Good Will Continue’

This post was originally published on this site

GRiZ is heading back on the road to shout “funk bad vibes” loud and proud across the country. The man behind the artist, Grant Kwiecinski, who just wrote a daring HuffPo OP-ED, has been busy headlining major festivals all over the country amongst rumors that he is working on a new album.

Today, June 26, Grant Kwiecinski has begun rolling out the first phase of his 2017 tour, deemed “Good Will Continue.” The new fall tour comes as a follow-up to his last, “Good Will Prevail,” which, in a lot of ways, was a response to the overwhelming political negativity that was pervading the country during last year’s unlikely presidential campaign.

The man Grant is thus far scheduled to hit major cities along the West Coast primarily, most notably a two-night stop in San Francisco and, not to mention, Suwannee’s Hulaween in Florida. The grueling one-month long tour schedule does not skip a beat or miss a day from 10/11- 11/11 — reflective of the kind of artistic intensity for which Grant seems to live.

The creative minds behind Suwannee Hulaween have revealed their 2017 lineup at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. Set for October 27-29, the diverse musical talent alone is evidence of how organizers are attempting to level up the experience.

The fifth annual gathering offers a wide-reaching exposé of live and electronic music’s finest, with a curated blend of jam bands, dance music, rock and hip-hop. Headliners this year include Bassnectar, GRiZ, RL Grime, Run the Jewels and many more. The flagship String Cheese Incident event will once again host the weekend’s most coveted spot with 3 full nights of the the most sought after Jam band experience in the world.

Besides the music, the green-conscious festival will have many onsite activities including yoga, dance, flow and meditation classes, awe-inspiring art installations, a craft brew corner, a speaker series, and a slew of carnivalesque interactive activities to get lost in.

“Backdropped by the natural beauty of the Spanish Moss-laden oak tree forest at Spirit of the Suwannee, there is no better Halloween party in the world,” says co-producer and talent buyer Michael Harrison Berg.

General Admission and VIP tickets are on sale now with the option of purchasing the Thursday “Pre-Party” pass.

GRiZ and Gramatik reprise their GRiZMatik duo for ‘As We Proceed’

This post was originally published on this site

Over the last handful of years, GRiZ and Gramatik have turned their similar visions of futuristic hip-hop and funk into a defined genre within the electronic dance music scene. Being so popular among many of the same listeners, it made complete sense for the two groove masters to join forces.

Much to the joy of their fans, they decided to do more than simply collaborate on a track or two and title it as “GRiZ x Gramatik;” they decided to create a new entity called GRiZMatik. With a number of singles under the GRiZMatik moniker, such as the genre-busting “Digital Liberation Is Mad Freedom” and the supremely funky “My People.”

The results of the duo’s newest joint labor is another piece of funk heaven called “As We Proceed.” The production quality of GRiZMatik has been great from the beginning, as both artists know their way around a synthesizer, to say the very least. On top of being well-versed in synthesis, the powerful staccato quality that they lean toward in many of their collaborative tracks shows they also know their compressors like the back of their hand.

However, “As We Proceed” takes their production to yet another level higher in caliber – much as both GRiZ and Gramatik have done with their latest albums, both released in 2016. A touch crisper in the higher registers and a tad tighter in the sub-sonic frequencies, every sonic aspect works together in constant pursuit of the funk, and it seems that neither artist will give up the chase anytime soon.
