Griz released another future funk anthem ahead of his upcoming album Say It Loud, due in March. His signature style works well with Mike Avery's vocals as the duo did their best to capture classic funk in a new light. Grant Kwiecinski (Griz) wrote a note on SoundCloud to tell the tale of the song's creation:

For this record I first went out to New York to record with some of the Daptone Records guys to get the main groove Of the tune. Then I had to travel out to Van Nyus to record a children's choir, which was the most nerve racking thing I have done in my entire life! Having a group of 7-11 year olds sing your song is quite the feeling. I then finished up the song with Mike Avery in Chicago. He was one super soulful dude and really captured the golden era funk vibes that I love so much. Overall, this is a song that is a total funk dance party. Enjoy with friends, preferably in a room full of disco balls.

When traveling and music are your way of life, good things will come. Stream the single above and check out Griz's upcoming tour dates on his Zumic artist page.
