GRiZ who is one of the pioneers of the electro-soul and future funk sounds, along with artists like Pretty Lights and Gramatik, yet has managed to carve his own lane in the genre. The always impressive artist announced his own record label 2 years ago with the release of his most recent album Rebel Era which was put out as a free download as well as being on iTunes. Today, the artist is announcing a new chapter in his career with the closing of Liberated Music and the launch of All Good Records. This label, while still carrying out releases being freely available, is also a step in the direction of a full service record label as opposed to just an avenue for Grant (Griz) to distribute his own work. The label has two signed artists, mid west live funk duo The Floozies and Chicago based soul star and TSIS regular Manic Focus.
You can now follow the new All Good Records on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, but you should also visit the freshly launched website www.AllGoodRecords.com where you can hear a preview of a new GRiZ song which we can expect to see on his upcoming album Say It Loud that is dropping soon.
Also to celebrate the launch, we have the latest single from the newly reformed labels' first release, The Floozies upcoming album Do Your Thing which will be released Jan 27th. We premiered "FNKTRP" and "Fantastic Love" from the group and now have an exclusive first listen of the song "She Ain't Yo Girlfriend" which captures the signature funky Floozies sound, yet is delivered in an extra sensual manner. The vocorded vocals and the fast paced plucks only help complete the future funk classic. Listen to the premiere of the song and don't miss an exclusive free download. Enjoy!

Unexpected. Yes. Unconventional. Very much so. But who cares in the end as funk lordz Chromeo finally announced the release date for their highly anticipated fourth studio album "White Women" in an unorthodox fashion. Using the internet superstore otherwise known as Craigslist as their medium, the duo created a post (seen above) containing the album artwork, lyrics to an unidentified song, and the release date of May 12th, 2014. Having teased fans for the last few months with tracks such as the recently released "Come Alive" featuring Toro Y Moi, we can now officially countdown to one of the biggest albums to come out in 2014. Stay tuned for more info as it is release and like always… Enjoy
Chromeo and Toro y Moi recently linked up for one of my favorite tracks I have ever heard from either artist individually and now we get the undeniably amazing track brought to visual form. As both artists’ track records include great music videos, it was no surprise it feels more like a short film as opposed to a music video, by Alex Southam. From Toro y Moi dressed as a janitor to Dave 1 electrocuting people, and girls dancing in leotards the video really has it all. Enjoy!
