Though we’ve been zealously sharing music from Detroit’s Flint Eastwood for more than a year, Jax Anderson’s riveting project has swiftly become one of my top obsessions of 2017, particularly after I witnessed how scintillating and dazzling her music is when translated to the stage. Last Friday, Flint Eastwood dropped her new EP Broke Royalty on Neon Gold. It was a release I had been looking forward to with an insane amount of excitement. The seven track release, which includes beast of a tunes like Queen and Monster, also includes this ravishing collaboration with production and saxophone auteur GRiZ. Rewind is a flawless combination of Flint Eastwood’s captivating pop and GRiZ’s flickering future bass. It’s a crossover track that will surely please all the future pop heads out there these days, ie. fans of Louis The Child, Whethan, and more. You can stream Flint Eastwood’s magnificent Broke Royalty EP in full on her YouTube channel, here. Purchase from major outlets, here. Flint Eastwood’s San Francisco debut at Popscene in June is a night I am looking forward to with all my heart. I can’t wait to see her light the stage on fire once again, and I highly recommend you make your way out to a Flint Eastwood show yourself. Trust me on this one. I mean it. Really. Go.

Detroit producer and saxophone auteur GRiZ is dropping a new album this Friday, and it’s been shaping up to be one of the season’s hottest electronic commodities. Just listen to newly revealed Gotta Push On, which features Brooklyn duo Brasstracks and vocals/guitar by Eric Krasno. It’s soul, funk, and horns galore on this molten jouncing, swanky swaggering jam. You can pre-order GRiZ’s talent studded album, Good Will Prevail, from iTunes.

Ever innovative Colorado “livetronica” band Big Gigantic dropped a solid gold new tune yesterday, one that you really shouldn’t miss. C’mon boasts big horns, whomping bass, and the grooviest funk on earth. Big Gigantic partners up with Detroit’s GRiZ on this high flying, rip roaring summer anthem. C’mon struts with confidence and a sly smirk. It’s a flashy flamboyant, dashing vociferous good time. And it’s a free download, here. C’mon can also be purchased from iTunes.

It comes as no surprise that NGHTMRE has blown up this year. The Southern California producer knows how to lay it down wihen it comes to earth shaking trap anthems. I’ve yet to catch the producer live, but I have a feeling I’d have a heavenly time at one of his sets, considering my love of high energy trap and electronic music. NGHTMRE’s latest jaw dropping thriller is a remix of GRiZ’s Stop Trippin’. I simply refuse to stop tripping to this colossal festival banger that takes full advantage of the soulful and funky elements on GRiZ’s original. Exhilarating drops, springy guitar, and booming percussion make this one incredibly fun and satisfying. Free download, here.

We’ve already heard a spectacular remix of Detroit act Griz’s For The Love, featuring Talib Kweli, by California’s Big Wild. This new one ventures in the opposite direction compared to Big Wild’s brassy, brazen affair. Instead, Chicago’s ever versatile and impressive Autograf takes For The Love on a dreamier, hazier route, creating a relatively mellow and stylish future funk rendition that smoothly glides and gently trembles with a blissful airy lightness. Snag the fellas’ remix for free, here.

Venice, California based production extraordinaire Big Wild gave Detroit artist Griz’s Talib Kweli featuring For The Love a colorfully vibrant and immensely magnificent remix. Big Wild’s For The Love is one of my favorite remixes this week so far, with its brazen brass and sun kissed xylophones. It’s a remix that charms with a soulful grittiness yet bursts exuberantly with an unabashed, melodic radiance. The choppy vocals and bold flavors remind me of a mix of Pretty Lights with Slow Magic. Oddly enough, though the track is nearly 3 minutes long, it seems over far too soon. A repeat listen, and another one after that, are much required. Big Wild will be touring with Griz this October.
