GRiZ, Two Fresh, Marvel Years
World Famous Productions presents GRiZ : THE REBEL ERA TOUR ft. Two Fresh and Anvil Smith!
“A true pioneer and master of musical expression, GRiZ (Grant Kwiecinski) stands head-and-shoulders above the competition in terms of the sheer variety of his ever-evolving technical prowess. A tremendously passionate and soulful producer, GriZ has a peerless knack for creating profoundly engaging melodies to offset the presence of his phenomenally designed bass. Where many artists become mired in a over-simplified and standardized method of production for the sake of creative efficiency; GriZ has no qualms sacrificing speed for the sake of quality, technical diversity, and an unrelenting devotion to progress and dynamism. Beginning his saga as a producer at the young age of fourteen, it is immediately evident that his talent and devotion will lead him on a journey of exceptional musical diversity and exploration. From funky rhythms to jazzy melodic embellishment, GriZ effortlessly incorporates his instrumental zeal for the saxophone with his lifelong dedication to soulful, laser-infused beat-making. This is only the beginning for Grant, and already the stylistic range of his material is both inspirational and utterly awe-inspiring.” -Written by Ethan Baer (subsynthesis.wordpress.com/)
Combining an array of influences and a diverse musical background, Two Fresh’s sound is difficult to describe but impossible to ignore. Built on a foundation of instrumental hip hop, their music seamlessly incorporates elements of sampling, a tight low end and catchy synth lines, with a strong beat always at the cornerstone. On stage, audiences are treated to the addition of Colby Buckler, regarded as one of the strongest drummers in the live electronic music scene today. This energetic trio continues to bring exciting new performances to crowds across the country as their sound naturally evolves. Before twin brothers Kendrick and Sherwyn Nicholls even turned 21, Two Fresh had already landed a label signing with 1320 Records on the merit of extensive successful touring across the east coast. Within a short few months, their first album “The Baker’s Dozen” was released to their devoted fan base. Fast forward to 2011 and Two Fresh has already graced the lineups of multiple major US festivals including SXSW, Electric Daisy Carnival, Wakarusa, Starscape and North Coast. Alongside fellow producers Jables and Bookworm, Two Fresh established the Lab Coat beat collective in the musical hotbed of Asheville, NC. Together Two Fresh and Lab Coat bring a new presentation and sound to electronic music in the Southeast region. Make sure to get Two Fresh’s sophomore debut album “Air Mail,” available now on Elm and Oak, 1320 Records, Itunes, Boomkat, and Bleep.
Anvil Smith’s music is nothing short of astounding. Russian born Yan Golovkin is somewhat of a startling example of what an obsession can grow into with the right motivations and some artistic direction. Regardless of nationality, the quality of production far exceeds that of many young bedroom producers in Anvil Smith’s peer group. Add to the story a barely functioning computer and an autodidactic grasp on music theory, we are in the midst of a savant producer. The Russian aspect only adds to the trials and tribulations that Anvil Smith has overcome to be able to solely focus on making great music. Keep your eye on Anvil Smith and those supporting him as he will be running with the big dogs in no time. Enjoy his new album and watch for tour dates in the coming months.
