It's official; future funk has taken over. A big reason why is because of Detroit-native GRiZ. The famous sax-wielding DJ-producer has been tearing up the scene since his emergence in 2012. Since then he's released three full-length albums, the most recent being Say It Loud — an album that proves that GRiZ has reached new heights in his career. It’s an album that pushes the boundaries of his own sound, complete with 60′s-inspired acid rock interludes, and funky tracks that are more fit for ‘Soul Train’ than for Electric Forest. However, it still packs the wobbly electronic energy to get the totem-filled crowds of festivals moving. This album comes on his own All Good Records imprint, a label that launched this year, marking another step in his journey towards domination of not just the electro-funk scene, but electronic music as a whole.

On top of that, GRiZ recently announced on his Facebook that he would be performing the biggest show of his life — a sold-out headlining gig at Colorado’s famous Red Rocks Amphitheater. On September 4, GRiZ will be hitting the geologically formed, open-air venue with fellow All Good Records label-mates the FlooziesManic Focus and Muzzy Bear.

It goes without saying that GRiZ has established himself as one of the most talented and exciting artists in the game. As he continues along his massive 'Say It Loud Tour,' and gets ready to make appearances at numerous of the summer's biggest festivals, including HARD Summer, Counterpoint, Mysteryland U.S., Movement Festival and Hangout Festival just to name a few, he's not slowing down one bit. To celebrate the future funk icon, we're bringing you the top 10 tracks from the man himself. Check out our selections below and stream our playlist above to get the funk down!
