If you follow the sax master GRiZ on Snapchat (@mynameisgriz) you have probably noticed a couple of things. 1) He spends a lot of time in the studio 2) The heaters he is cooking in the studio are funky, diverse, jazzy and so dynamic 3) He got his hair colored 4) It looks cold as hell in Colorado 5) he still loves the reefers (jah bless.) We’ve been waiting patiently ever since GRiZ started performing his new material with live vocalists and musicians on festival main-stages and KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.
Today we have the pleasure of hearing his second single, “Stop Trippin’” featuring iDA Hawk off his anticipated album set for release this spring. Stop trippin’ is an incredibly well-crafted mixture of old school funky, psychedelic rock, gospel, glitch and future bass music. iDA’s vocals soar through the track while his flawless composition exudes guitar riffs to make gargoyles cry and sax blasts that will have the pope aching for someone’s touch. With each tease of his forthcoming album Say It Loud, due out March 2015 on his new label All Good Records, we are blown away and drowning in anticipation.
In celebration of his album release, GRiZ is going on an aggressive tour across the US to bring the funk to every venue possible this spring. He will be joined by the homies The Floozies, Exmag, Artifakts, and Muzzy Bears and is guaranteed to have several tricks hidden in his bag of funk. Check out the tour dates below and make sure to catch this sax prophet trail blazing the future bass vibes.
