BRANX has blossomed into an exciting act within the past few months thanks to being signed to Gramatik's Lowtemp label which we featured the single "Sauce". The New York based producer is here with his debut release Look But Don't Touch EP that follows in the same stride of electro-soul pioneers before him. The unsuspecting build of “Watermelon Bubblegum” springs to life blending funk elements into a powerful electro house anthem. The grooviest of vibes are displayed on “Smooth Operator” and “Lavender Avenue” each encompassing the type of goodness that will have you dancing instantaneously wherever you may be. Altogether, BRANX has stepped up and made his talents known in the most creative of manners on this release; if this is spills over into a run of shows, then I strongly urge you to consider seeing the man do his thing in the flesh. Listen to the exclusive premiere and don't miss out on grabbing a free download via Lowtemp. Enjoy!

Watch: GRiZ release incredible first ever music video to “Smash the Funk”

Posted in Bangin, Video by nick | Tags: , , , ,

Rising electronic star GRiZ releases his first ever music video to his huge funk powered festival anthem “Smash the Funk”covering his “brief voyage as an artist” and discussing his sound as being “Electro-Soul” or “Future Funk”. The video showcases the electronic producer’s first year leaving his home of Detroit / East Lansing and living in Boulder, Colorado.

In his words :

This video is a look into my brief voyage as an artist and also behind the scenes of three sold out Colorado shows (Boulder, Denver, and Red Rocks.) I also wanted to do something completely different and have fun with the video so I took some old gear that had seen its day and retired it to the shooting range (it looks pretty badass in slow motion). I also talk a bit about what music means to me and where I have come from. Nearing the first anniversary of my debut album Mad LiberationI wanted to release this video that has been a journey itself to create.”
