Grant Richard Kwizinski was born and raised in Southfield, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. The guy is famous for playing the saxophone, as well as producing funk / electro soul and the self-proclaimed funk of the future! Kwizinski first met the alto saxophone and piano back in elementary school… Since then, his life has been inextricably linked with music…

Since 2011, GRiZ (the pseudonym of our hero) has been releasing an absolutely insane amount of music! With 8 studio albums under his belt, collaboration with Wreckno (only 18 tracks) and a huge number of singles, today he revives his Chasing The Golden Hour series, the history of which began back in 2015…

Every Christmas in Detroit, GRiZ plays charity shows.

A unique fact, but every year our hero makes a pilgrimage to Thailand! Actually, on "Know Time Like The Present", the intro track from the latest Chasing the Golden Hour Pt. 3, Kwizinski goes very deep into this topic, saying, “I stopped trying… The universe is just being – that’s the whole answer”…

And now let's move on to the most interesting ... To CTGH Pt. 3!

"Chasing The Golden Hour, Pt. 3" serves as the perfect musical snack, with hints of a bygone summer... As summer sunsets turn into fall, electro-funk connoisseurs chase the outgoing season with warm melodies and cozy harmonies for a nostalgic project. The record is filled with inspiring rhythms that evoke a feeling of optimism! Especially our Michigan native, who curates the canvas, which demonstrates its sonic maturity and artistic versatility…

CTGH Pt. 3 includes a variety of sounds and styles, showcasing the highest level of production and musical knowledge of GRiZ. The poignant dialogue on 'Know Time Like The Present' is more upbeat in its post-disco musical arrangement of 'Nights in Shibuya', or maybe you're more into the California soul of 'Won't Be Gone Long' - this mixtape covers many musical foundations and seems to have something meaningful and appealing to everyone.

“I wanted to recreate the carefree, pleasant atmosphere that you feel when the perfect summer evening is approaching sunset and everything has the most beautiful shimmering shade of gold,” GRiZ said in a press release. "Chasing The Golden Hour is a magical moment, it's a cool breeze on your back, it's sweet summer fun in a musical form..."

"Chasing The Golden Hour, Pt. 3 is not the dharma of an enlightened buddha, but rather an unearthed journey... It's a jazzy, groove-packed collection of instrumental reflections and creative freedom, more laidback than its predecessors, exploding to rainbow rhythms!

“When I was making the first two mixtapes, I was literally 'shooting in the dark',” he says. “It was a hodgepodge of songs with softer vibes and then everything went overboard… I wanted to focus, dig a little deeper and have a more thoughtful approach to finishing those songs. That is why the third movement has soft rules… It is clearer, more restrained and much more harmonious…”

Inspired by the close-knit flow of melodies and rhythms, Kwizinski forced himself to find the right vibe and stick with it. He wanted to make a mixtape that would sound like a scooter ride through the evening streets of Pai, a sleepy Thai town where the producer slipped away in early 2020.

Tracks, background music...

The mixtape's lead single, "Sweet", serves as the pinnacle of all this magic, with its contemporary funk groove and signature saxophone tunes leading up to the meditative album-ending "Floating" and "Where Will I Go"...

GRiZ on the single: “This song kind of came to my mind at the time when I was just thinking about doing all this. Lately I've been playing the saxophone a lot, but it would be too easy to copy it… I needed another ingredient, and I found it…”

The fuzzy sunset sounds generated by the experiments culminated in the secret track "Wish". The rest of the mixtape is all fresh, previously unreleased music, the sounds of pure GRiZ bliss… Look at Nights In Shibuya (Japan) or Koh Samui (Thailand)…

“I produce with all my heart,” Grant says. "These songs are a reflection of my personal practice."

Conclusion…

Staying true to the Chasing The Golden Hour series, the album embodies a minimalistic yet reckless sound, a stark departure from the dubstep-infused releases from the musician's past collections. "Chasing the Golden Hour" (Pt. 3) showcases the talented producer's versatility in the production space and his ability to create his own stylistic directions.

GRiZ says this mixtape is a reflection of his self-awareness and his deep connection to the universe, as well as a return to form that showcases his deep knowledge of classical recordings, funk instrumental and poetic lyrics... While staying true to the minimalist yet so intoxicating series of CTGH sounds Pt…
