What would happen if funky guitar riffs and sexy saxophone melodies had a baby, and then that baby grew up and had a baby with the bass-heavy, hip hop-influenced beats of two of the top producers in the game? You would get an adorable little guy named Grizmatik.
Grizmatik is the immaculate conception of Detroit native Grant Kwiecinski (aka GRiZ) and renowned electro-hip hop duo and Pretty Lights Music label stars Gramatik. While Griz is just a mere youngster at 23 years of age, he has already experienced tremendous success with his debut album Mad Liberation, and is about to release his sophomore album entitled Rebel Era. Gramatik is somewhat the opposite when it comes to experience, as they have been in the game for a while now. Their first few albums (see Street Bangerz) were all about catchy, classic, old school-style hip hop beats laid underneath funky, soulful vocal samples and live guitar riffs. Recently they have shown that they can also hang with the more “new school” players, with their high-energy album #digitalfreedom. Griz’s cutting-edge electro-hip hop-bass is the perfect compliment to Gramatik’s funky old school style.
The two artists first started collaborating last year, when they put out a banger entitled Digital Liberation Is Mad Freedom, and have performed live as Grizmatik at multiple festivals and shows across the country ever since. This Halloween night at the 1stBank Center will be their biggest performance to date, and with support from A-Trak, Two Fresh, and Exmag, it is sure to be a crowd pleaser. After the Halloween massacre they will be heading to Milwaukee to perform with another star-studded lineup at The Rave. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to the Halloween show to one lucky fan. See below for details.
