As soon as I went and saw Django in theaters I knew this song was destined for remix greatness and someone has finally done it justice. Griz gives it the perfect facelift with his choppy, funky, glitch hop sound. His sampling, transitions from one section to the next, as well as his frequent use of guitar riffs always amazes me. I really need to see him live, I bet that would be wild.
Where glitch meets funk meets saxophone is somewhere around where this new track lies. Big Gigantic and GRiZ come together for a brilliant collaboration of sounds that I am surprised has not happened more creating a high energy tune fit for any dancing occasion. They both like to give away their works and that is no different here, grab it above for free.
Griz + Gramatik = Grizmatik.
As the artists state on their new Facebook page: “Gramatik & Griz teamed up to show you how to weaponize the Uranium and cause Electro Soul devastation.”
Ok. Pretty simple. Press play and you’ll think the decision is pretty great. Their debut collaborative release is more than appropriate, combining some of the funkiest electronic talents out there into one devastatingly soulful ball o’ fire, shall we say. Grab that free download Kollectors, and prepare yourselves for the next mega drop from these guys!
A little funky, a little hard, and always right, Griz has an undeniable bounce and feel to every one of his productions. This one steers a little more towards a melodic feel, which I’m not complaining about, but still contains sections where things get a little intense. All in all, it’s one of the best $0 I’ve spent all week.
Griz released a track from his forthcoming release, Mad Generation, set to drop September 4th and I have to say it has me excited for the rest of the release. It’s a funky beat down at 103bpm with plenty of heavy chops so it has that bouncy electro funk feel. There’s a good bit of saxophone in the track (Griz plays himself) which is always a plus for me and sets the harder parts apart from the mellowed out sections. I’ve had it on repeat today and I’m sure some of you will do the same..
Electro Soul Funk Hip-hop? What? GRiZ has taken the musical blogosphere by storm the last couple of days by dropping this groundbreaking, genre smashing original track “You Got to Change,” incorporating samples from 6 vinyls and 8 different songs. Its got the chill groove of hip hop, with funky samples and electro elements as well. This is the definition of a summer song. This is the type of song you would hear in a movie montage, of characters doing bad ass shit. Am I alone on that? Download above and support GRiZ on facebook.
