Last week we shared a new track from GRiZ titled 'Feelin' High' which took his sound back to his roots of old-school funk and hip-hop. Now, following up that release, the undisputed king of future-funk has surprised us with a brand new album. Chasing The Golden Hour Part 1 features a few collaborations with artists like Muzzy Bearr, Russ Liquid and Exmag who have all been close with GRiZ in the past. When describing the album he states, "I wanted to recreate the carefree good vibes you feel when it’s just about sunset on the perfect summer evening and everything is the most beautiful shimmering tint of gold. Chasing The Golden Hour is that magical moment, it is the cool breeze against your back, it is sweet summer swagger in music form."
The collection of tracks focus on the smooth nature of funk music that provokes a head-bob and the feeling of spirited elation. He's drifted further away from the harsher sounds that sometimes are heard in his more hard-hitting productions, revealing a proper funk motif that has been so relevant with GRiZ beats from the beginning. We've noticed that this is just part 1 of the Chasing The Golden Hour series, so check back with us for more news as it arises.
