In 2016, L.A.-based producer Gryffin delivered two heavy-hitting singles that showcased his deeply melodic take on dance music and transitioned the project into its next phase after racking up millions of plays of his remixes on SoundCloud and Spotify.

With both tracks built on a graceful fusion of indie and electronic elements, “Heading Home (ft. Josef Salvat)” shot to #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts, while “Whole Heart” (a collaboration with Bipolar Sunshine) hit #2 on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. Also known for turning out several of the biggest remixes in recent years—including his masterly reworkings of Tove Lo’s “Talking Body,” CHVRCHES’ “Clearest Blue,” and Years & Years’ “Desire”—Gryffin is now offering up his latest original track and bringing his boundary-shattering artistry to bold new heights.

Following this Gryffin released the irresistibly high-energy and aptly named “Feel Good”powered by hypnotic melody, massive beats, and a magnetic vocal performance from singer/songwriter Daya. Fresh off her Grammy Award win for “Don’t Let Me Down” (the multi-platinum smash that earned 2017’s Best Dance Recording prize), Daya lends her soulful vocals to Gryffin’s immaculate arrangement of heavy synth and delicate guitar work. In crafting that arrangement, Gryffin drew equally from his edgy ingenuity as a producer and his carefully honed musicality as a longtime guitarist and classically trained pianist.

Following “Feel Good,” Gryffin joined forces with Sinead Harnett for their sultry collaboration, “Love In Ruins, that balanced dark undertones with uplifting energy to give long-time fans a trip back to the melodic house style that shot him up the charts and into the spotlight. Finally, his most recent single, “Nobody Compares To You” with Katie Pearlman, has seen incredible success various music charts, peaking at #6 on Spotify’s US Viral Charts, #8 on iTunes Dance charts in the US, #12 on Shazam’s Global Charts, and #1 on Shazam’s Dance charts. With more music on the way in 2018, Gryffin is sure to continue the upward and swift trajectory his project has previously been on course with. To kick off 2018, Gryffin released arguably his most versatile offering to-date called “Winnebago,” featuring the vocal talents of Quinn XCII and Daniel Wilson which continues to soundtrack the summer.
