[PREMIERE] Opiuo Shares Funk-Fueled Remix of GRiZ’s “PS GFY” Feat. Cherub Ahead Of ‘Good Will Continue’ Remix Album

Opiuo GRiZ

TSIS favorite GRiZ has already had an explosive year between his electrifying reunion with Gramatik back in January for “As We Proceed” and the announcement of his impending live band debut in September. Today GRiZ’s 2017 got a whole lot bigger with the announcement of Good Will Continue, a 13-track remix album set to drop on August 18.  

In honor of that announcement, we’re excited to be premiering one of the many vibrant remixes from the album: Opiuo’s funky remix of “PS GFY” feat. Cherub. This New Zealand-born producer has been in the game for nearly a decade now (he first appeared on TSIS back in 2011 for a bass-fueled remix of “Good Thymes”), designing releases that range from future-funk to glitch hop and more.

Opiuo certainly brought those years of experience to this explosive remix, completely re-imagining the track with his unique production style. A heavily distorted vocal lead, saxophone and warbly synths lead you in, with the energy only building from there. Each drop is different, with the second taking you on a deeper, more psychedelic route that keeps things fresh. Most recognizable from the original are the iconic brassy elements that make GRiZ’s tracks so authentically his own. Stream the exciting new remix below and be sure to check out the full "Good Will Continue" track list + upcoming GRiZ tour dates. Enjoy!

Unexpected Collaboration Between DJ Premier And Cherub Results In Amazing Track "My Space Baby"

Cherub DJ Premiere
Legendary hip-hop producer DJ Premier and TSIS favorite Cherub have teamed up and created an extraordinary track “My Space Baby”. The signature vocal sound from Cherub accompanied by DJ Premier’s production style is the perfect formula for a summer hit. 
 

“My Space Baby” is the second release from DJ Premier in 2017 while this release is the first we’ve heard from Cherub in some time, succeeding their 2016 full-length album Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence. Composed of an infectious guitar riff and a simple, but funky, bassline working in parallel with a nostalgic, hip-hop influenced, percussion pattern, and all of which is accented by charming piano chords… “My Space Baby” is a thoroughly produced record by DJ Premier and a perfect medium for Cherub to sprinkle their magic. Enjoy!

GRiZ Links With Cherub On Funky Collaboration “PS GFY”

GRiZ Cherub PS GFY

GRiZ and Cherub bring the funk in full force on “PS GFY” ahead of GRiZ’s Good Will Prevail album coming Sep. 23 on his own imprint, All Good Records. The LP seems to be shaping up nicely as this follows "Can’t Hold Me Down" feat. Tash of the London Souls and "Before I Go" feat. Leo Napier.

GRiZ & Cherub have been longtime friends and, naturally, show an instant chemistry on "PS GFY" collaboration. The track is straight up catchy. The production is lifted by energetic horns, silky guitar riffs and grooving basslines that perfectly intertwine with Cherub’s lively vocals. The lyrics are also a playful middle finger to those who have wronged someone. He sings, "You should know this well / Ain't trying to wish you ill / Hope this life treats you well / Oh yeah, ps go fuck yourself".

The pre-order of Good Will Prevail is now available with an instant free download of “PS GFY” and other previously released tracks. GRiZ is set to head out on his biggest tour to date with shows at several iconic venues including Red Rocks (Colorado), Shrine (Los Angeles) and Navy Pier (Chicago). See below for the tour dates and be sure to grab your tickets quickly. Enjoy!
