2015 is turning out to be a winning year for seasoned electro-funk innovator GRiZ. After receiving high praises for his fourth studio album–Say It Loud–Griz commissioned a collection of emerging acts to add variations for the single For The Love ,featuring iconic rapper Talib Kweli, and rolled out a collaboration with Big Gigantic–Good Times Roll–to boot. Throw in a recent spotlight takeover of SnapChat's Discovery Channel and you have quite the list of accolades. With complacency nowhere near to GRiZ's ethos, he continues to push and challenge himself through new musical endeavors.
This brings us to his newest creation, "Feeling High"! This savory concoction of jazz and R&B is downright sensual from beginning to end. The smooth saxophone line that's made GRiZ such a memorable live act is at play throughout, and works perfectly with legendary musician Eric Bloom production prowess. Hip-hop heads will recognize the inspiration for this original from Reflection Eternal's "2000 Seasons" jam, but morphed into GRiZ's framework. Stream the release below and grab yourself a free download, because why the heck not. Enjoy!

[PREMIERE] Break Science – Misaligned (Ft. &CO) (Music Video) : Electro Soul Original [Free DownloadPosted in Chill, Premieres, Uncategorized by nick | Tags: &CO, Break Science, Electro Soul, Misaligned, Music Video, Premiere
When they aren't performing as essential members in the Pretty Lights Band, New York based duo Break Science, are turning out some incredible music of their own.
Today we have the premiere of their newest single, "Misaligned", a standalone song showcasing a more matured sound from the group. We hear a nice cinematic intro which quickly progresses to a signature keyboard fueled drop, yet with a new atmospheric twist. To accompany the new song the duo are premiering an equally impressive set of dark visuals for it's official music video. Watch the video below, and stay tuned as we'll have the free download later this month. Enjoy!
Here are some quotes from Adam Deitch of Break Science and the director of the video Paul Greenhouse on the video.
"Honored to have collaborated with a true visual artist such as Paul Greenhouse for our new "Misaligned" video. This will be our 3rd musical collaboration with Sonya Kitchell (&Co is her new project) and we feel it's the best yet.” – Adam Deitch
"The concept for the video was to use the singer, Sonya Kitchell's face as a frame and fill it with imagery that would illustrate the nuances and textures of the track. I didn’t understand the meaning of the lyrics until we filmed Sonya’s performance and learned it was a breakup song. My friend Eric who worked on this with me got Sonya into a discussion about the meaning of the lyrics, and by the last take (the one we use in the video), her performance was really intense and powerful. It’s bit obscured by all of the images laid over top, but I think you can still feel it in her eyes and some of her expressions." -Paul Greenhouse

[PREMIERE] GRiZ – For The Love (Naderi Remix) (Ft. Talib Kweli) : Must Hear Future Bass / Electro SoulPosted in Bangin, Chill, Premieres by nick | Tags: Electro Soul, Future Bass, Griz, naderi, Premiere, Remix
Two weeks ago we featured the exciting new Big Wild remix of the GRiZ single “For the Love”, featuring Talib Kweli. This was the first of a series of remixes from the freshly announced “For The Love Remixes EP”, which is set to release this Friday, August 7th.
Well, today we have the premiere of the newest remix from Naderi, an exciting Australian act that’s been making waves. For those who haven’t been following, Naderi is the producer who’s been working behind the scenes on Flume, What So Not, Carmada, and various other acts. Just recently he has been putting out music under his Naderi project. Last month he released an official remix to Fetty Wap’s radio single “Trap Queen” which he managed to inject with a huge blast of something fresh along with releasing his official remix of Daniel Johns "Aerial Love" a few months back.
He steps up and completely reconstructs the song from the ground up. He cleverly starts with Talib’s rap verse, right out the gate giving the song a strong vibe. We hear a distorted background mixture of synth melodies, vocal chops and bass growls which continue to build up to an anthem inducing drop which manages to use the vocal sampling as it’s own instrument. To keep things even more interesting he manages to include a completely separate drop for the second part of the song. This is quite an impressive remix that will have you hitting replay before it has a chance to end. Listen below to the premiere and look out for a free download and official release this Friday, August 7th.
Also, just a few days ago GRiZ announced his newest wave of tour dates for this fall (See all the dates below). He has also shared the very exciting details of selling out his first ever headline show at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater, over a month in advanced of theSeptember 4th date. Enjoy!
