Grant “GRiZ” Kwiecinski is definitely set to take the electronic music scene by storm. His remixes and original tracks have gone viral on the internet thanks to Sound Cloud and various music blogs. He has found support for his music through college students and festival goers alike, and has only just begun. GRiZ was attending the Michigan State, and almost graduated from the school before he found success through his music. In one of the few interviews GRiZ has done thus far in his career, he explains how he felt the need to leave school to accomplish his goals in a career that was blossoming in front of him. GRiZ has a style that has been influenced by electro-hip hop artists like Pretty Lights, Paper Diamond, and Gramatik. Very recently, GRiZ released a new banger of a single called “The Future is Now” that he debuted at Electric Forest this year. GRiZ also has big plans for his first full length album that will be titled “Mad Liberation.” Listeners can hear his unique sound and style and feel that this guy has big things to come.
GRiZ is still a young cat, but he is making big moves in the festival scene. This year, GRiZ was an all-star act at Electric Forest, where he completely flooded the smallest indoor stage with curious and eager fans. During Electric Forest, he collaborated with Gramatik and Dominic Lallie (Big Gigantic) to create a super group that they dub “Big GRiZmatik.” This act was one of the highlights of the entire festival. Since GRiZ is just beginning on his musical journey, there has been a crazy buzz about any show or festival that this dude is at. GRiZ also played at the Snowball Festival in Vail, Colorado to an excited crowd that showed him some love. Since then, he has played in Colorado a few more times and is adding more and more festivals and shows under his belt. You do NOT want to miss GRiZ at Summer Set this year!
