Electronic music masters GRiZ and Break Science will headline Turn Up the Good on Thursday, April 4 at Ferris State University’s Wink Arena.
The event, sponsored by Ferris’ Music Industry Management Association, begins at 7 p.m. The doors open at 6 p.m. General admission tickets are $5 for Ferris students and $10 for the public, available at Wink Arena and the Rankin Student Center or online at startickets.com (http://starticketsplus.com/event.php?event=3642).
“I think that students are going to like who we have coming,” said Zach Rokosz, a Music Industry Management major who serves as booking agent for the annual concert event. “Electronic music isn’t dying. I think it’s changing, and the artists we have coming are more than just a mixing board and a computer.”
GRiZ is Grant Kwiecinski, a producer and saxophonist from Detroit, whose debut album “Mad Liberation” was released in 2012. Well-known in electronic music circles for his stylistic range, GRiZ calls his music “electro soul” and “future funk.” Music samples are available on his website, here: http://mynameisgriz.com/.
Break Science is the Brooklyn-based duo of Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee, who have produced and performed with popular acts such as Wu-Tang Clan, Talib Kweli and The Fugees. Read more about Break Science and watch performance videos here: http://www.breaksciencemusic.com/.
The Turn Up the Good bill also features The Floozies and will open with the winner of WomStreet. Voters will choose their favorite mix submitted by DJs to http://womstreet.com/contests/TUTG.
“This year we are going to try to have a festival feel to the concert,” Rokosz said. “The artists are going to have live instrumentation while staying in the electronic realm.”
