After his grungey glitch hop collaboration with Gramatik entitled “Digital Liberation is Mad Freedom,” Griz teams up with fellow Colorado residents Big Gigantic for a thrilling, adrenaline-inducing drumstep production. Initially reminiscent of “Bonfire” by Knife Party for its reggae vibes and drumstep tempo, “Power” progresses from a monstrous bass drop to a jazzy interlude fueled by live saxophone. Between Griz, Big Gigantic, and Gramatik, a new era of glitch hop-driven dubstep is quickly forming, backed by each producer’s impressive live instrumental abilities. Stay tuned for more inter-Colorado collaborations and pick up “Power” for free from SoundCloud.

Making stops along the East Coast and in the South the two will bring fans their unique ensemble of live instruments and DJ samples along the way. The set of shows ends March 3 in Oklahoma City.
