Could you? Griz, the instrument based Colorado DJ, is a big hit with the kids these days. The dude has been a noteworthy name since 2011 or 2012.
While I will be the first one to say that EDM, House, Dubstep does not agree with me. I usually end up with an upset stomach, indigestion and diarrhea. I can say that Griz was, one of a few in that genre which I did enjoy some of his music.
Rebel Era is the most familiar of his early albums, I'm guessing any song that I can remember would be on this album. I don't care enough currently, to go through and name the few songs I did listen too. EDM and those other genres are rarely on any of my playlists these days, and I didn't write this blog to call back all the shitty music I used to listen to. I wrote this blog to talk about the man, Griz.
I don't know his name, what I do know is that one of his friends posted a pretty cool video detailing how Griz "remixes" songs. Fuck guys, I might be in my 20s but I still feel like a got some Benjamin Button going. Sorry to the thirteen year old's out there. When you get to my age, son, shit just moves too fast and too shitily to keep up.
I only have one question. What kind of asshole neighbor is this dude Griz?
Another question for ya, where do you guys think they are?
Like when they are recording this? Playing the guitar, the Sax, and bass, where do you think they are?
Just stop, you are wrong, wrong. That is not a studio, that is a studio apartment. Or just a single room in an apartment.
I've been in more than 17 different studios and not a single one of them looked like a living room with a dual core processor iMac, and a couple of wooden chairs. That my friends is a room in an apartment, on a floor, of a building, in the middle of a city.
Back to my point, Griz is a fuckin asshole. What kind of douche turns a room in his apartment into a studio? I can't imagine living out a lease next to or even near this guy. I don't care about loud music, especially during the day but for those who haven't been inside 17 different studios, you need to understand that there is a difference between recording a song and listening to one.
Just in that video, the guys showed us a bit of their process. You have to lay down every instrument individually, even before you can say you've finished that, the person on the instrument must play the notes right. And I hate to break it to your loving heart but not many musicians out there can nail a song on one take. That shit takes awhile, and it is not fun to be around seven to nine hours.
As soon as I get Internet famous, I'm buying a house dummies.
Doesn't need to be big, it just needs: At least five hundred yards of land which separate property lines, woods, bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, windows, basement and level-enough ground. Why those things?
Because, level-enough ground means I can build a studio on my property and not even bother anybody possibly staying inside the main house. I won't need a permit because there will be so much land separating the properties in the neighborhood that no one can see my complex by simply driving by. I can hunt for my food, and befriend the local deer population to act as security, warning me of any hormonal bear attacks. I'd be set and I wouldn't be the dude blaring a Saxophone at 10:30 am, from one of 300 apartments in a building, located within a city.
