GRiZ is EDM’s gift that keeps on giving.
The beloved funk and bass music producer has released a behemoth bundle of new tracks to tide fans over ahead of an indefinite hiatus starting in October. GRiZ released a statement this summer to announce his impending break from touring, citing a desire to spend more time with friends and family.
Dubbed “ID Bible,” the new collection features 24 tracks, all of which are remixes or edits from GRiZ’s live sets. His ingenuity is crystal-clear right off the rip with “Supersonic,” a searing song that interpolates samples from Ciara’s “1, 2 Step” and Lana Del Rey’s “Jealous Girl.”
What follows is a remarkable showcase of one of the most gifted selectors in bass music. Highlights in the relentless song-cycle include the filthy riddim cut “Who TF Is GRiZ” and a pair of squelching dubstep bangers, “Let Him Cook” and “Interdimensional.”
Elsewhere, GRiZ returns to his funkstep roots with the effervescent “Infinite Bloom,” weaving a stunning latticework of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s aching “Innerbloom” vocals and his signature sax patterns. Fans itching for a bit more swing should look no further than the wonky “Glitch Hop Is Dead” and “Zoom,” a toe-tapping tech house track sampling the ageless horns of Jay-Z’s “Show Me What You Got.”
The best part? Considering GRiZ notated the playlist’s folder with a “1,” fans are safe to expect more to follow. Check out GRiZ’s first “ID Bible” in-full below.
