Last time we caught this guys set was at Kingdom's monthly party, he set up in the middle of the dancefloor, MPC in hand, and set the room on fire. Part of the Dipset crew, he's known for innovative beats and prowess on the MPC that is unparalleled both as a performer and a producer.
Metro-Detroit native Grant Kwiecinski (born May 31st, 1990) better know by his stage name "GRiZ" is an independent American electronic music artist. Begging his career as a classically trained Alto Saxophone and piano player he was attracted to electronic music production at the young age of 14 with a spiked interest in the workings of hip-hop instrumentals and his exposure to IDM (intelligent dance music).
Stylistically, GRiZ creates bass infused hip-hop, electro soul, and future funk sounding productions
often accompanied by the live performance and recording of his Alto Saxophone and the use of an
array of vinyl samples.
GRiZ debuted his first full-length album late summer on Sept 4th '12 titled "Mad Liberation" that has
garnered him major buzz and exposure worldwide, racking up over 40,000+ downloads within it's first 2 weeks of being released, all organically.
2012 has proven that GRiZ is not a name to forget. With the summer being filled with some huge
festival performances including some notable plays at Electric Forest, Coachella, Movement (Detroit
Electronic Music Festival), and Summer Set. He also joined Gramatik for his Digital Freedom tour, as well as some spread-out small headline dates in the mix. Fall 2012 for GRiZ looks to be pretty eventful, jumping on Big Gigantic and Bassnectar's tours, then off playing a small run of his own intimate headline shows across the nation.
Vinyl lover, people hugger.
Well known for serving up a crossbreed of indy dance, swampy bass and banging beats, Tom Hamilton, aka DJ Morale, hasn't stopped moving packed dance floors since he first emerged on the scene in 2007. Whether you catch his set at a large venue, inside a dark warehouse, at a packed bar or at a major festival, his beats guarantee that standing still is out of the question. Morale's ability to engage a wide variety of music lovers with his diverse, intriguing, and completely nasty performances has left a trail of nothing but crushed dance floors and sweaty ravers behind him. Fortunately, with residencies in both San Francisco and New York, his momentum doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon
