Today we are super excited to share with you some new music from GRiZ. GRiZ recently cleared out his social media accounts and replaced the content with pictures of blank pages and cryptic messages like last month’s spoken word poem causing much speculation and confusion with his fans. One of the only other posts on his Instagram teases his upcoming shows at Red Rocks. There has been speculation that GRiZ is quitting music or gearing up for another big announcement. While he has stayed quiet on social media, we fortunately have new music to hold us over. GRiZ has treated us to a feel-good remix of Rudimental’s recent hit “These Days” featuring Jess Glynne, Macklemore, and Dan Caplen.
For his remix of “These Days,” GRiZ infuses his signature, upbeat sound and reimagines it as high-energy electro-funk. Ambient guitar and strings build the power behind the vocalists and culminate into a groovy breakdown. GRiZ incorporates his sax with horns from the original and overlays punchy, hip-hop-style percussion. His remix of “These Days” elevates the track and emboldens its nostalgic vibe.
While there is still no word as to what GRiZ has planned for the future, we would like to think this new release is a good sign. You can check out this and the other remixes from Rudimental’s These Days remix EP, available now via Asylum Records. Stay tuned for more information on GRiZ and what else he has in store. Enjoy!
