The first of Gryffin‘s two-part EP series, Gravity Pt. 1, convenes four familiar Gryffin offerings with two previously unheard cuts, to strike a balance between well-received releases and fresh material. Gravity Pt. 1 arrives as a welcome extended effort from the “Feel Good” collaborator, who has steadily responded to listeners’ tastes for new Gryffin music in a piecemeal manner, dropping one tune at a time. Although Gryffin fans won’t see the second part of the sonic Gravity saga gain a release until 2019, Gravity Pt. 1 is sure to pervade streamers’ speakers with its inviting enthusiasm of sound.

The producer pilots “Bye Bye” and “You Remind Me” on the first installment in the Gravity series. The two new tunes further evidence Gryffin’s penchant for vocal-centric constructions with ascendant melodies, as affirmed by earlier singles, “Nobody Compares To You,” “Just For A Moment,” Tie Me Down,” and “Remember.” The final two inclusions of Gravity Pt. 1, “Bye Bye” and “You Remind Me” gently guide the vibrant first installment in the Gravity series to an end.

Gryffin releases second single off forthcoming debut LP, ‘Remember’

Gryffin releases second single off forthcoming debut LP, ‘Remember’Gryffin

Gryffin invites listeners to dance down memory lane on “Remember,” the second single to arrive off of the producer’s incoming debut LP. Gryffin has progressively paved a pop styled path of releases via past singles like “Nobody Compares To You,” and most recently, Elley Duhé feature, and debut single off of Gryffin’s highly anticipated album, “Tie Me Down.” Like its sonic predecessors, “Remember” concurrently represents Gryffin’s stride further into pop territory, and the forward thinking nature of a Gryffin pop production. Lyrically confessional and tonally upbeat, “Remember” is a dance worthy, sing-a-long friendly number that visualizes bittersweet reminiscence on prior romance through a lighthearted lens.

ZOHARA’s strong soprano vocal ornaments the tune’s mid tempo background beat, rendering “Remember” another installment in Gryffin’s vocal-centric series of releases. Although “Remember” is generally and recognizably pop leaning in arrangement, Gryffin does inflect the production with tasteful tinges of deep house groove in the song’s synth work. “Remember” foreshadows the sound that remains yet to come in its full fledged, youthful form on Gryffin’s inaugural LP.

Gryffin continues hot streak with new single, ‘Tie Me Down’12496403 1431317753561210 5598414869384891919 O

The summer of 2018 has been Gryffin‘s stomping ground, with killer performances at both weekends of Electric Forest, a hit collaboration with Quinn XCII, and a dreamy July release on “Just For a Moment” featuring Iselin. Now, it seems there’s no stopping the LA-based producer, dishing out some future bass on his new track, “Tie Me Down” with Elley Duhé.

Gryffin starts it off with some light drum combos, echoing synth scales, and occasional guitar notes, leading into a melodic drop that allows listeners to pay close attention to Duhé’s dreamy vocals. The single is simply beautiful, with an array of production elements that make it a high contender as the next electronic track to break as a mainstream hit.

Gryffin will hit the decks at Electric Zoo‘s Brownies & Lemonade stage Sept. 2, just a day after joining Gramatik and his crew at Red Rocks Sept. 1.

Gryffin teams up with Iselin on emotional ‘Just For A Moment’Gryffin

Producer and DJ Gryffin is known for his compelling take on dance-oriented pop music, with a slew of innovative originals and remixes under his belt. The “Love In Ruins” artist has now teamed up with Norwegian singer/songwriter Iselin for their emotional new collaboration, “Just For A Moment.” The new original work is the Gryffin’s second single of 2018, landing shortly after “Winnebago” which landed earlier this spring. On “Just For A Moment,” Gryffin forgoes a characterisitc hip-hop production for a softer, more sentimental melodic offering. Polished by Iselin’s smooth vocals, the full impact of Gryffin’s dynamic future bass synth arrangements come together as a vibrant collaborative piece that’s worth repeated listens this summer.
