Review: Boulder-based badman Griz delivers his fourth album and it's - without argument - his finest work to date. A firing future funk document that's steeped in instrumentation and obese, floor-focussed dynamics and grooves so powerful they could bring an end to all comas, his organic signature is matched toe-to-toe with bold muscular production and anti-formulaic subversion. Highlights include the authentic 70s blacksploitation funk strutter "Get Down", the smoky, lazer-rasing Pretty Lights-esque "It's All Good" and the wholesome classic hip-hop jam "For The Love" with Talib Kweli. Say it loudly, say it proudly... Griz has gone next level on this one.
Review: In comes the remix! Griz's exceptional Good Will Prevail album gets the treatment from some of the best in their respective bass games. Version cruciality comes from all corners with highlights firing from Ephwurd (head-chopping bass house) Opiuo (mental vocal manipulation and a horn-bent skank to die for) Barclay Crenshaw (smoking cosmic soul) and Tisoki (rolling percussive garage-inspired lushness) but this is just scratching the remix surface. Live Good and prosper!
