MUST LISTEN: GRiZ gets down on ‘Bangers.Zip’ EP via Deadbeats
GRiZ has blessed the masses with another EP touting new sounds for those with more heavily-leaning pallets. Just last week, the Boulder-based future funkmaster teased the release of his Bangers.zip EP, a three-track project meant to follow up on his Bangers.zip EP. Now the project sees its wide release on Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats.
The playfully raunchy short form begins strong with the fan-favorite opener, “Griztronics,” a highly-anticipated collaboration with Subtronics, who debuted the track at Electric Forest. The EP’s closing track, “Push The Vibe,” provides the perfect bookend to the wub-laden monstrosity, with its glaring electro builds and hybrid glitch-hop drops. Sandwiched between the two is “Freak The Method,” a genre-blurring track that calls up GRiZ’s expert ability to fuse smooth, melodically-driven electro-funk with hard, face-curling dubstep.
GRiZ has recently set off on phase two of his massive Ride Waves tour, which sees the saxophone-touting producer at 515 Alive, Austin City Limits, and a very special three-night Denver run at the Fillmore and Red Rocks doubleheader, which he alluded to as his very last performance at the iconic outdoor venue.
