After introducing the world to his Aloe Blacc collaboration atop the cultural cathedral that is the Coachella Sahara Tent this past April, Gryffin has just officially disclosed the pair’s highly anticipated single, “Hurt People.” The duo soon rendezvoused to helped pay tribute on the anniversary of Avicii’s passing with a heartrending live rendition of the late producer’s iconic track “Wake Me Up.” The renowned vocalist in the electronic space stuck around to debut the emotionally charged new collaboration.

With lyrical support from Bastille frontman, Dan Smith, Gryffin and Aloe Blacc are primed for a cosmic blend of glossy future bass production and impassioned vocals. Gryffin flaunts his trademark guitar plucks over Blacc’s poignant message for an overall feel-good flavor that serves as a preeminent summer backdrop, despite its mournful themes. “Hurt People” marks the second offering from the latter half of the producer’s forthcoming debut LP, Gravity, which is slated for release later this summer following the Slander-assisted “All You Need to Know.”

Gryffin is scheduled to bring the entirety of his freshman album for a one-of-a-kind sold-out spectacle at the stunning Brooklyn Mirage this August with his Gravity II Live show.

Gryffin has soared to some of the highest peaks in the electronic terrain. His latest release alongside SLANDER is no exception. Their latest collaboration is entitled “All You Need To Know,” with Swedish singer/songwriter Calle Lehmann is the featured vocalist.

The lofty expectations for the song were definitively met thanks to its melodic allure blended with an underlying drum combination that crescendos alongside Lehmann’s vocals into a euphoric future bass release. SLANDER is known for a diverse output including grimy dubstep releases that are appropriately paired with light commercial crossover tracks. “All You Need To Know” falls into the latter category: the perfect song to carry listeners into spring thanks to its cheerful energy and polarizing vocal layers.

Gryffin merges fan favorites with new cuts on first of two-part EP series, ‘Gravity Pt. 1’

Gryffin merges fan favorites with new cuts on first of two-part EP series, ‘Gravity Pt. 1’12496403 1431317753561210 5598414869384891919 O

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.
