In b4 his SOLD OUT Red Rocks appearance, GRiZ drops a chilled down mixtape

In b4 his SOLD OUT Friday night headline appearance at Red Rocks, GRiZ — our April 2015 cover subject featured in “Life on Planet GRiZ” — dropped a surprise mixtape to thank all his fans. The 9 track heater is a internal temp cooling ride calling on inspirational efforts from the golden era of hip-hop like early J. Dilla and Hi-Tek influenced beats to progressive jazz fusion. The mixtape is also available as a free download, cop yours here!

“I wanted to recreate the carefree good vibes you feel when it’s just about sunset on the perfect summer evening and everything is the most beautiful shimmering tint of gold,” says GRIZ via SoundCloud. “’Chasing The Golden Hour’ is that magical moment, it is the cool breeze against your back, it is sweet summer swagger in music form. Enjoy the chilled out vibes :)”
