Griz Drops Three-Track EP of Heavy Stage Favorites: Listen

Jason Siegel

Listening to Griz's music is only half of being his fan. You've got to see Michigan's electro-funk master in the flesh and rockin' the stage. It's an explosive hour or two of multi-instrumentation, brain-brightening bass, and spine-tingling sonic play. Some of his wildest tunes are saved for the live occassion, but he's also a generous Grizster, and so today, he's giving three of his gnarliest funk blasters for everyone around the world in the form of an EP called Bangers[2].Zip.

"Play this at high volumes in public places," Griz tells Billboard Dance. "Been spinning these tracks live for a while now, stoked to finally share them with the world. Even more stoked that my boy Subtronics is in on one of them. OG sounds for the OG fam."

"Griztronics" featuring Subtronics is a face-melter right out the gate. It's beautiful, bassy and unhinged, and it's followed by the dirty bluejean soul of "Freak The Method" and the hyperactive dub-cheer "Push The Vibe." It's a maddening, pulse-pumping collection of tunes, each unique but heavily laced with Griz' ingenius flair.

Bangers[2].Zip is out now on Zeds Dead's label Deadbeats. Jam to it below, and check out Griz's tour dates after the jump.
