A year ago to the date we were blessed with GRiZ’s “A Fine Way To Die” as a single off his impressive Say It Loud album, and it’s been on heavy rotation ever since. With his holiday fundraising extravaganza 12 days of Grizmas kicking off yesterday, GRiZ is in a giving mood and delivers a new rendition of “A Fine Way To Die.”
This new version celebrates the start of Grizmas as the Detroit native interacts with fans in a series of unique fundraising experiences in his hometown benefiting “Little Kids Rock,” which works to put music back in America’s schools. This reimagined version of “A Fine Way To Die” is smoothed out with more volume as this talented producer has reworked and added layers of slick instrumentation making for a new experience while leaving the soulful vocals intact. The sax breakdown is tweaked with a new call & response section bringing a new life to the track and moves into a new gritty bass drop that seamlessly transitions to peaceful melodies with backing vocals, sexy guitar riffs, sultry sax crooning and fun organic percussion. This new, extended version is packed with new elements sounding like a completely new song and is a wonderful listen. Click here for more info and to donate. Enjoy!

TSIS regularly featured artist Manic Focus first came on our maps through a series of remixes of tracks like Bill Withers' "Use Me" and Disclosure's "Latch" among others. We even helped sponsor his albums "Cerebral Eclipse" and "Distant Perspective". Well today he goes back to his roots and drops us off a bootleg remix of soul singer Tracy Chapman’s classic, “Give Me One Reason.” Keeping the vocals intact, he builds a spacey, chilled out melodic, electro soul rework of the track with some bouncy percussion breakdowns filled with chime sounds. Listen to the premiere below. Enjoy!

Residing on Gramatik’s Lowtemp label, Russ Liquid has been making waves as a jam influenced producer to keep an eye on as he’s improved his sound with every release. His 17 track Foreign Frequency album infuses elements of jazz and bass music in a new, refreshing sound he’s made his own. Today he’s teamed up with acclaimed live electronica and experimental world fusion trio Beats Antique, as well as fellow New Orleans based bassist Eric Vogel and guitarist Andrew Block. This psychedelic track infuses live instrumentation with electronic production as the slick guitar licks, funky basslines and keyboard work, jazzy hi hats, and the signature crooning trumpet is mixed in with quivering synths and electronica production as it all comes together on this pleasant track appropriately titled “This is Pretty Cool.” Enjoy!
