Michigan producer Grant Kwiecenski, aka GRiZ, dropped a surprise nine-track mixtape titled Chasing The Golden Hour Pt. 1 last Wednesday, and it's so good it got me back to writing reviews after almost a month off.
GRiZ says on SoundCloud he"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. Chasing The Golden Hour is that magical moment, it is the cool breeze against your back, it is sweet summer swagger in music form."
Well, I'd say he succeeded. This song, "Love Wil Follow You," is my favorite off the mixtape. GRiZ gives a second life to Molly Johnson's "Melody": saxophone, piano, vocals, and boom-bap beats blend perfectly and result in a groovy, warm track.
