Colorodo electro-funk producer and performer GRiZ -- real name Grant Kwiecinski -- has released his fourth artist album Say It Loud. The 11-track LP features collaborations alongside Talib Kweli, The Floozies, Orlando Napier, Manic Focus and others. It is his first album since 2013's Rebel Era. The album has all of the funk bass fans want with the sexy sax that Kwiencinski adds on top as his unique touch. Stream the album below on SoundCloud and download it for free on his website. The release comes ahead of a world tour.

Some of you may be wondering how on earth this guy is ever going to make any money if he is giving away all his money for free. Well, he is making it available to stream on Spotify, Rdio and Deezer, but it is not like anyone makes money from that anyway. He also has the option for fans to pay an amount they choose directly to him, cutting out the middle man of some major label on BitTorrent. There is also the option to purchase at traditional portals like Amazon, iTunes and Google Play.

Primarily, though, GRiZ makes his living on the road, and having already wrapped up his short European batch of gigs, Kwiecinski is about to get to the meat of his "Say It Loud" tour starting tonight, April 1, in Asheville, North Carolina, before heading all over the United States, capping it off at Hangout Festival.
