Where in the world is GRiZ going?

This post was originally published on this site

After a tweeting a series of cryptic messages, Grant Kwiecinski has been stirring up quite the rumor mill amongst fans, media friends, and his devoted GRiZ family. Is GRiZ retiring? Where is he going? Is it an overseas world tour? How am I to go on living?

Such is the goal of any carefully executed guerrilla marketing strategy: keep the people questioning.

Many wondered whether the series of tweets were pointing to an impending announcement that the All Good Records label head would be soon parting ways with his imprint. After all, rumors that he no longer retained full control over his label bandied about the community of faithful since last November — when the label’s socials went completely dark.

And when the dust settled after 24 hours, Kwiecinski kept the feeding frenzy going by tweeting another cryptic message — this time a photo with the caption, “it’s about time we talked.” The photo displayed several documents with blurred text, alluding to the documents as important to said overdue conversation.

At this point, Kwiecinski’s tweet feels a lot like some hypothetical parental talk whereby Grant the Man has been keeping something hidden from us and needs to come clean. One thing has become clear, though: Grant is teasing us. 

If the series of tweets weren’t enough, Kwiecinski is taking things one step further each and every day. Recently, GRiZ also wiped his entire Instagram account clean, except for one post displaying nothing more than a blank sheet of paper and no caption.

Nowadays, it is common practice for artists to wipe their social media accounts before some big announcement, so it’s safe to assume that GRiZ has something new coming soon. Something new and something big considering this is a guy whose career can be defined by its prolificness — he’s released a new studio album or mixtape every year since 2015 and held his annual GRiZmas gatherings for years, to say nothing of his headlining appearances at Lightning in Bottle, Electric Forest, and Backwoods. Here is an artist who finds joy in tirelessly working to bring his fanbase new and fresh material.

A post shared by GRiZ (@griz) on

As one fan’s Instagram comment alludes to, Grant Kwiecinski could very well be turning a “new page” in the GRiZ saga. That much has become clear, but what new and big direction could the funk master be taking?

On Feb. 2, GRiZ took to Twitter again to release a professionally produced promotional video in which he reveals another piece of the puzzle. The short video rendering shows Kwiecinski sitting on a stool in an empty room. He then proceeds to perform a spoken word piece, one he delivers with emotion and conviction.

“I wanna tell you a story. I wanna tell you a story and I want it to be perfect and I want it be your favorite. It’s for me but it’s also for you. It’s about all of us. It’s about time we talked.”

While it is likely this performance is an avenue of growth as opposed to complete shift in his artistic output, it seems whatever GRiZ is keeping under wraps signals a period where the artist will remain incommunicado from his fans. The only thing that remains certain at this point is that GRiZ is a master of suspense, leaving fans and the electronic music community on the edge of their seats until his next big announcement.

Drum ‘n’ bass producer Mistabishi makes several racist comments on social media

This post was originally published on this site

English drum ‘n’ bass producer Mistabishi has sparked controversy after recently voicing a series of racist comments on Facebook and Twitter. Mistabishi first targeted London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, after Khan expressed pleasure once Donald Trump’s visit to London was cancelled.

“Khan is from a migrant family,” the artist wrote, “He’s not English and London is not his capital city. He is a Muslim and his capital is Mecca.” Mistabishi meanwhile asserted his status as a “real Londoner,” remarking that his family “can be traced back over a thousand years.”

Mistabishi’s response to the Mayor elicited retaliation from a Facebook user who wrote “Britain doesn’t want you, either” on the producer’s page. Mistabishi fired back “Feel free to beat your child cousin bride and throw gay people off buildings because ‘it’s your culture,’ Muzzy.”

UK artist, Chimpo screenshotted and tweeted the Facebook thread containing the comments, captioning the photo “Wow Mistabishi! How u gonna hate immigrants and make d’n’b and techno? Racists aren’t welcome here mate.”

Mistabishi extended his deragatoy comments to Twitter, where he called a Twitter user a chimp, informing the tweeter that he didn’t “want a braindead semi-literate dj chimp” playing his music.

While Mistabishi has since deleted the defamatory Facebook remarks, a post that the producer published on a forum in August has surfaced.

The image of the summer forum post shows the artist state that black culture is “destructive to social integration.” Mistabishi uses several racial slurs to articulate his point therein.

It looks like a Zhu and Tame Impala collaboration may be in the works

This post was originally published on this site

As far as strange sonic pairings go, sometimes musical opposites really do attract — just ask Elton John and Eminem, Kanye West and Bon Iver, or Aerosmith and Run DMC, among many others. Now, possibly the next artistic convergence to to join the odd collaborations ranks could be Zhu and Tame Impala, as they’re rumored to have linked up for an upcoming project. This set of rumors reignited speculation that first began circulating on the internet in late 2017.

Zhu took to Twitter to fan the flames, leaving a perfectly nondescript message that will either leave fans scratching their heads, or salivating for a first listen. If this materializes, will Zhu’s enigmatic electro-noir style complement Tame Impala‘s buzzing psychedelic rock fare? Only time will tell, though all signs point to a hit waiting to happen. Fingers crossed.

New year, new marketing approach? Maybe so, says The Chainsmokers’ recent social media activity.

The electronic duo notably outfitted their Instagram and Twitter accounts with a revamped “TCS” logo, tweeting out a vague question in conjunction with the simplistic new graphic. “How many likes is my life worth?” the tweet reads.

While fans have since speculated that producers Alex Pall and Drew Taggart’s provocative tweet contains the thread of an album concept for a potential sophomore release, the context of the tweeted question remains unknown, but details will inevitably follow as January unfolds.
