[ELECTRO/FUNK] Lettuce - "Slippin Into Darkness" (GRiZ Remix ft. Jessica Breanne)

For those nights when I really need to chill out, fall into a groove and just let the music wash over me, a good dose of electro funk really hits the spot. I use the term ‘electro funk’ here to generically encompass the wide variety of sounds that are incorporated within – from jazz to hip-hop, blues and bass. Coming from my years of playing jazz music growing up, the bluesier and jazzier the track is, the more I enjoy it. A few names come to mind when this genre is brought up, but sitting atop that list at the moment is sax wielding beatmaker GRiZ. With a roaring big band intro and wailing trumpets, the Detroit producer leads us through his sax-infused remix of Lettuce‘s 2012 single, “Slippin Into Darkness”. Leaning heavy on the funk and bass, GRiZ also incorporates elements of hip-hop and and a bit of sax improv for a thoroughly enjoyable blend of smooth taste with just the right amount of bite. So sit back, chill out and enjoy the brew below.
