Griz finally drops his album “Mad Liberation” in true gentlemanly style – for free. Dude has been tearing it up the past year with a string of quality remixes and then combined forces with Grammatik to form an electronic duo of unfair levels of talent and chillness.
I was able to catch Grizmatik’s show and afterparty at Northcoast this past weekend and had a fantastic time. Their Northcoast performance was a little noisy and unrelenting for my taste but they chilled out for the aftershow and made sure to play a lot of tracks they are both known for. Plus Griz kills it on the sax.
Snag the album from Griz’s site below – his album description/mission is also some genuine prose that I dig so make sure and read that too..
Got a little dose of bass for you. Been a strong supporter of Griz for a while now and he just dropped a pretty sweet remix of Behind Blue Eyes by the Who. Let’s just say it’s better better than the Limp Bizkit cover of the same song.. oh wait that was one of the biggest steaming piles of baby diarrhea to ever be considered music. Comparison irrelevant. Long live Griz, Fuck Fred.
Some fire for your weekend shenanigans. First up an epic 8 minute track from Dimitri from Paris. We don’t post a lot of house on this blog but this track gets me. Killer vocals on both backup and lead.
I’m kind of ashamed to like this next track just because it makes me feel old. Louis La Roche is no stranger to our blog and he nails that classic disco sound in his new track. And when I say classic, I’m picturing 80 year olds in a conga line reliving their glory days. It takes a special kind of producer to make you feel so much happiness and shame at the same time.

Next track is a fast and furious jazzy monster, definitely a big room affair. Curiously did not come attached with an artist. My apologies. After Party (Original Mix)
Haven’t heard of Griz before but if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m a sucker for classic samples. Hip-hop memories over some fatass bass. GRIZ – iLL Type Moves
