Detroit transplanted to Colorado electronic muscian GRiZ has been teasing with his Grizmatik project and a collaboration with Big Gigantic, yet has kept his solo productions under wrap since his highly successful free album Mad Liberation released last fall. “Gettin’ Live” is the first single from his newest currently unnamed record. Right from the beginning the song packs a unique twist of bass and soul unlike anyone else. The song features some Django Unlimited samples as well as some guitar and sax work from GRiZ himself, and also features a guitar solo from Muzzy the guitarist on his last record. As if ‘Gettin Live’ didn’t have enough energy, around the 2:30 mark, he let’s loose one of the dirtiest sections he has ever created. GRiZ has drastically improved as a producer, and has most definitely not lost that funky flavor we love. He has been nice enough to give this song out completely for free. Look out for more about his upcoming record slated to release sometime before summer. Enjoy!
