Grant Kwiecinski, or more commonly known as the sax playing mastermind, GRiZ has outdone hisself once again with the anticipated release of his Remix Album ‘Good Will Continue‘. The album features one phenomenal remix after another of each of his tracks off his 2016 album ‘Good Will Prevail‘.
The Remix album features a slew of diverse and huge artists from every genre from house to riddim and everything in between. But seriously, the amount of talent featured on this remix album is mind blowing. Some of the most notable contributors include Boogie T, Dirty Audio, Ephwurd, Tommy Trash, Louis Futon, Barclay Crenshaw and AC Slater just to name a few.
Yeah. We're excited too. We'll break down our favorites for you.
Riddim and dubstep up and comer, Boogie T has been making waves in the scene this festival season preforming at festivals such as Big Dub, Nightmare and Lollapalooza. His take on the rock-y Can't Hold Me Down track is subtle yet true to Boogie's heavier roots. A perfect mix between funk and heavier dubstep. All in all a 10/10 remix.
House music DJ duo extraordinaire, Datsik and Bais Haus, aka Ephwurd, offered their talents to GRiZ and Big Gigantic's monster hit Good Times Roll. The track virtually stays true to its original until the drop, where Ephwurd offers their signature high tempo house beat that makes us want to jump up and start shuffling. And we don't even know how to shuffle.
One last special mention on this fantastic remix album is the Gotta Push On remix by the mysterious Barclay Crenshaw with the help of Basstracks and Eric Krasno. Barclay Crenshaw is the alias, but actually just the given name, of Dirtybird Dad Claude VonStroke. Barclay has played at festivals such as Electric Forest and Sonic Bloom this summer. His sound has been described as metaphysical slow jams. This remix of Gotta Push On is a funky, all over the place (in the best way possible) experimental, jam track. Truthfully, too hard to put to words and genres. Just give it a listen and you'll understand why we love it so much.
Now these were just some of our favorites. Do yourself a favor and listen to the whole album.
Remix albums tend to be really hit or miss. Sometimes there's way too many remixes, sometimes they all sound just slightly different, sometimes the albums just flop as a whole. But not this time. GRiZ hit the nail on the head with this remix album, and we can't wait to hear all these phenomenal renditions played out during his fall Good Will Continue tour. Check to see if he's hitting a city near you, and we hope to see you there.
