TSIS favorite GRiZ has already had an explosive year between his electrifying reunion with Gramatik back in January for “As We Proceed” and the announcement of his impending live band debut in September. Today GRiZ’s 2017 got a whole lot bigger with the announcement of Good Will Continue, a 13-track remix album set to drop on August 18.
In honor of that announcement, we’re excited to be premiering one of the many vibrant remixes from the album: Opiuo’s funky remix of “PS GFY” feat. Cherub. This New Zealand-born producer has been in the game for nearly a decade now (he first appeared on TSIS back in 2011 for a bass-fueled remix of “Good Thymes”), designing releases that range from future-funk to glitch hop and more.
Opiuo certainly brought those years of experience to this explosive remix, completely re-imagining the track with his unique production style. A heavily distorted vocal lead, saxophone and warbly synths lead you in, with the energy only building from there. Each drop is different, with the second taking you on a deeper, more psychedelic route that keeps things fresh. Most recognizable from the original are the iconic brassy elements that make GRiZ’s tracks so authentically his own. Stream the exciting new remix below and be sure to check out the full "Good Will Continue" track list + upcoming GRiZ tour dates. Enjoy!
