[PREMIERE] Dabin Shares Extra Chill New Single “Hazy” Off Upcoming Album

Dabin Guitar Press Shot

Leading up to Dabin’s full length album Two Hearts dropping March 31, he’s shared another impressive track off the album. His newest release is the refreshing single “Hazy” we have the pleasure of premiering. 

This follows up his heavy genre-blending single “Lilith” as he switches things up once again. “Hazy” seamlessly mixes live instrumentation with his relaxing production elements finding a unique balance. “Hazy” is a great title for the laid-back tune carrying a hip-hop aesthetic as the guitar, horns and other fresh instrumentation is utilized in the track like samples while the female vocals are given just the right amount of effect on the relaxing tune.

A few months back Dabin teased the song with a live performance video on Facebook (below) and now the track is available in its entirety. This latest track is an uplifting single capturing a colorful sound design that has us looking forward to the full LP via Kannibalen Records. Enjoy!

GRiZ Red Rocks 2017

GRiZ has just shares some epic news about his upcoming Red Rocks shows this year. Not only will GRiZ be performing two nights of Red Rocks, but night one will also be the debut of GRiZ Live Band! 

We’ve been following GRiZ for years and taking the step to performing as a live band is the natural progression as his shows have already incorporated live sax and guitar. GRiZ has already played the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre twice and we can’t wait for him to return Sep. 1 & 2 this year. While he hasn’t announced who will play as part of GRiZ live band, it’s safe to say he’ll put together a solid cast of musicians to play alongside. Stay tuned for the full lineup and more info. Check out the teaser video for this year’s shows below as well as last year’s aftermovie. Enjoy!

Quinn XCII Press Van

TSIS regular Quinn XCII is back with another catchy single “Make Time”. This is his follow-up single to his successful track “Straightjacket” we premiered at the end of last year.  

The Detroit-based singer-songwriter once again delivers a hybrid sound combining electronic elements with live instrumentation with his R&B styled vocals. Quinn always seems to find a catchy melody each of his releases, and this is no different. His frequent collaborator Ayokay produced this latest track including chill guitar plucks, bright melodies and an infectious, electronic-based drop filled with perfectly-placed vocal chops laying the foundation for the vocals to float atop. Enjoy!
