Super-producer Skrillex has been known to work with some incredible people such as Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Chance The Rapper, Justin Bieber and many many more. Today we have news that Sonny is adding to his collab repertoire Rage Against The Machine guitar player Tom Morello and Jay Z-signed artist Jahlil Beats. A picture just surfaced moments ago without many details but we know this could only lead to something HUGE. Seems like Tom Morello is really branching out into the electronic world after a picture of him and Bassnectar in the studio popped up last month as well. We are more than excited to see what comes of these collaborations. We will keep you posted as more info rolls in.
We would like to properly familiarize you with the latest exciting act to emerge from electro-soul icon GRiZ's new record label All Good Records. Muzzy Bearr is a Detroit native whom you've heard playing guitar on various GRiZ tracks as well as in the GRiZ live band. Well Muzzy Bearr has been carving his own lane as a solo artist/producer, and has just released his first full length solo album on All Good records, Vintage Sutra. And today we have one of the most exciting tracks from the album, "Bougie" which features GRiZ himself laying down some smooth, soulful jazz. The entire track is a spacey, tripped out journey with some definite inspiration from Pretty Lights, yet completely Muzzy's own. The drums and synths collide for the perfect ground work sound with GRiZ's sax acting as the cherry on top. You can grab a free download of "Bougie" below as part of Muzzy Bear's debut solo release Vintage Sutra which just released today also as a free download thanks to Muzzy Bearr and All Good Records.
