"I Spit it For the Love"

I'm a bit late to the party, but this whole electro-soul movement is pretty dope. Lead in large part by GRiZ, it's as if someone said, "Hey Hip Hop, funk and soul, you're invited to the electronic party, come on in." The tone is grown and sexy for the max, like that type of music you can probably share with your parents in a last ditch effort for common ground on a long road trip. Between this song and Snails/Big Gigantic's recent song Funk With Me, it's becoming abundantly clear that a concerted effort is being made to expand electronic music in a way that welcomes with open arms the use of the saxophone. It's all about dat sax man!

It's been a while since I've heard a Talib Kweli verse, but when you combine his powers with high quality back up vocals and funky live instrumentation vibe, it's hard not to dig. For the Love is one of many new ones on GRiZ's third studio album, Say it Loud. You'll have to wait about a week for it to drop, but that give both you and me some time to catch up on his past two albums. With GRiZ leading the way, I'm really looking forward to this futuristic direction of funk...#SayItLoud
