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 horn additions. 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!
