GRiZ releases entire album ‘Say It Loud’ as a free download
Future funk phenom GRiZ has released an album’s worth of his best work as a free download. The Detroit native’s soulful production style bleeds through on every production throughout Say It Loud’s 11-track lineup. Whether he’s dabbling in dubstep, psychedelic space rock, Chicago house, or classic funk and soul, GRiZ’s imaginative compositions are absolutely spell-binding. While big band horn sections, 80s cut-and-scratch flourishes, and in your face bass cuts may make up the album’s schizophrenic soundscapes, his work maintains a distinct aesthetic no matter the medium. Stand out tracks include “Get Down,” “The Anthem” and a stunning Talib Kweli collaboration “For The Love,” that sees the producer dipping the tempo and crafting a truly inspired piece of art alongside one of hip hop’s truest talents.
