GRiZ: Stop Trippin' (with iDA HAWK)
Nowadays, many producers pull inspiration from past genres to bring a little nostalgia into their tracks to appeal to a wide audience. Soul-funk brother, GRiZ, has carved a solidified niche in dance music for himself with his "future funk" infusion of jazz, hip-hop, and dubstep. With an upcoming album in the works, GRiZ decided to release the first single off the album, "Stop Trippin'," with vocalist iDA HAWK. Instead of injecting minuscule elements into a dance backbone, GRiZ manages to take a rock-inspired guitar riff and craft a gritty yet groovy future funk heater. His original production is so versatile that any fan of any genre can find something they love about it. In addition to "Stop Trippin'," GRiZ has announced that starting this month, he will be touring Canada, US, and Europe on his Say It Loud World Tour.
