Oh man this might just be one of my favorite GRiZ tracks yet! As one of the primary artists in my mind that has been slowly pushing the funk and soul agenda onto the dance music scene, GRiZ has done so with style, saxophone, distorted synths and boatloads of bass. However "Gotta Push On" is not the most bombastic record which, in my opinion, makes it that much more special. It hits with the same kind of hype and energy that embodies many of GRiZ's other records except that the chorus leads with Brasstracks...yes BRASSTRACKS' sexy horns. Eric Krasno sounds superb and the choir that he got to sing in the end crushes! This track I feel epitomizes the direction GRiZ has been pushing toward for many years, and comes at the perfect time. Just about the only thing missing from a track of this magnitude is a slick verse from sayyyy I don't know...Anderson .Paak. Ha ha I know...a guy can dream right? Anyways, until that dream becomes a reality just take a second to enjoy a remarkable artist seemingly at the height of his game. "Gotta Push On" comes as the final single released before GRiZ drops his new LP 'Good Will Prevail' this Friday Sept. 23. The 'Good Will Prevail' LP is currently available for pre-sale on iTunes here.
San Fran! There might still be some last minute tickets available for GRiZ's Funksgiving show November 26th at the Bill Graham Auditorium. You can purchase tickets below!
