Damn, I’ve been waiting for this for quite some time.. GRiZ.. the past Michigan resident who has made his way to Boulder has finally announced that his Mad Liberation album will be coming out September 4th for free. TSIS has been following this talented 22 year old producer ever since we posted his his MASSIVE remix of Aerosmith’s “Dream On”. This is the last single off of Mad Liberation to come out before it drops next week. There isn’t an official tracklist, but I believe that “The Future Is Now” and “Where Is The Love” are on the album as well. This track “Smash the Funk” is a future funk /groovestep bass heavy BANGER. It starts off with a dancey funk break which immedately picks up some energy with a little bass. It then moves it then builds up more and more energy until the bass finally comes crashing in complete with his eerie high pitched synths. The track has soul and emotion, yet capturing a modern crunchy edge.. to form GRiZ’s distinct flavor. Turn up the bass, get ready for September 4th, this looks to be one of the biggest releases of the year. Enjoy!
