We are thrilled to announce that Sunday, July 21st of Global Dance Festival will feature both solo sets from Griz and Gramatik, PLUS a rare collaborative set from Grizmatik. One of the most exciting artist collaborations of the past year, these giants of funk have united their soulful yet bass-laden unique styles for one infectious sound that is taking the world by storm.Frontman of the record label "Lowtemp," Gramatik is known for his lush, big beats, breaking through all boundaries and sampling classic hip hop beats and live instrumentation for a funky, downtempo feel. A master of production, Griz infuses hip hop, electro soul and future funk, often incorporating live performance or recording of his Alto Saxophone, creating a ground-breaking sound that absolutely smashes dance floors. Prepare to be blown away by their artful combination of funk, soul and gritty electronic synths as they dominate Red Rocks with bass thumping energy and an undeniable groove. Their live performances emphasize the idea that good music is felt, not heard, and we can't wait to experience it beneath the Colorado night sky.The 11th annual Global Dance Festival will take place on July 19 through July 21, 2013 at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo.
