It’s been a quick, hot rise for the music man known as Gryffin. The New York City producer burst onto the scene with warm, colorful remixes of Tove Lo, Maroon 5 and others, then hit fans hard with cool original grooves like “Whole Heart” with Bipolar Sunshine and “Heading Home” with Josef Salvat.
He’s found a real cool niche for tropical waves and dance-pop bright enough for pool parties that move from day to night. His style is lush and inviting, and he’s honed it even more so on a full-length album that he’s just itching to unleash.
“The album process has been extremely rewarding and challenging,” Gryffin tells Billboard Dance. “Between deciding what tracks to focus on and finish, to figuring out what I want the project to feel and sound like, it has been a huge undertaking, but something I’m feeling really good about.”
The first single from the forthcoming record was the Elly Duhé collaboration “Tie Me Up.” It was a raw bit of romance, and he follows it now with an energetic, funky club floor feeling with ZOHARA called “Remember.”
“When I heard the original demo of ‘Remember,’ I immediately thought it’d be cool to flip it into a house record,” he explains. “Last year, I did a remix for Snakehips that had this metallic sound to it and knew that it would work perfectly with ZOHARA’s voice. I’m very excited for people to hear the rest of the music on the album.”
“Remember” is out now, accompanied by a lyric video below. Stay tuned for more information about Gryffin’s big debut LP, and vibe to this heat.
