Colorado electronic powerhouses GRiZ and Big Gigantic teamed up back in 2013 on the collaborative single "Power" that proceeded to tear up festival crowds for some time and is still heard by both artists.
Well the two have linked up once again on "Good Times Roll" and it's safe to say it's one of the best tracks we've heard all summer. The funk is present in this tune as psychedelic keys are placed alongside a funky bassline, silky guitar riff, soulful singers, high energy percussion, and of course it’s all tied together by dueling saxophones.
Impressive songwriting abilities are shown in this infectious collab with irresistible singing & sax lines, in which there is even a call & response section between the vocals and horns that will be sure to be stuck in your head after listening. This soulful, feel good song is appropriately titled “Good Times Roll” as this summertime anthem brings just the right amount of gritty bass and has come just in time for a seasonal treat while summer is still going strong.
Both artists are gearing up for big Red Rocks shows in September as Griz sold out the legendary venue over a month out for his first show there, and Big G is hitting their 4th Rowdytown double night run that TSIS presents on September 25th and 26th (which is also on track to sell out in advance, so don't miss out on tickets!). Enjoy!

Brooklyn, New York based electronic producer / DJ Gramatik has kept us anxiously waiting for his biggest project to date, The Age Of Reason, which Thissongissick.com has the exclusive first listen of the album in its entirety! Denis brought a talented cast of singers and muscians for The Age of Reason; working with the likes of Cherub, ILLUMNTR, Orlando Napier, and his Lowtemp label-mates Gibbz and Exmag. Before layering his collaborators tracks with the perfect amount of bass and funk, Gramatik samples their various instruments to give each tune a unique live band anesthetic. My personal favorite is "Torture", a song which features the talented Eric Krasno on guitar and vocals. New addition to the project Eric Mendelson of Exmag plays guitar all throughout the album providing an undeniable soul to Gramatik. If you have caught Gramatik at a festival or venue over the past year, chances are you've heard some of these tracks. We are less then a month into the year and I will already claim this as being one of the best album releases of 2014. You can stream it in full below, and will be available for FREE download exclusively via torrenting the album at bittorrent.com Saturday!
