GZRUS (pronounced like Toyrs R Us but with a G’d up twist). San Francisco DJs and producers Trevor Simpson and Kosplay joined forces for what initially was a G House project. Their first project was an official remix for Carnage featuring Migos “Bricks” on Ultra Records. This was followed by a guest spot on Carnage’s Incredible XM show which gained GZRUS accolades from around the globe. The duo maintained a low profile and released bi-weekly mashups and edits that became blog favorites with support from the likes of Diplo, Steve Aoki, TWRK, A-Trak and Destructo.
To keep their fast growing forward momentum, GZRUS are set to officially release the “GZ UP” EP on the 10th of November, through Carrillo Music, one of the hottest independent electronic music labels, based in Phoenix, Arizona.
GZRUS strike a great balance between just plain fun dance music and a fresh sound to serve our dance floors. EDM’s “4 on the floor” house music streak has gotten stale through the years, but the “GZ UP” EP innovates and plays around with the formulas. GZRUS add infectious vocals and uplifting melodies that don’t simply rehash old ideas.
From “Put ‘Em In A Coffin ft. Money B” to “Ammo ft. Drop City Yacht Club & Netta B” and “Really Tho ft. Opio Of Hieroglyphics”, Trevor Simpson and Kosplay take dance music to another level, and it’s not the same old ‘another’ level you may be used to either. I’m not sure where these two come from, but it may not even be from this planet!
Simply wicked, this is the stuff, creativity at its highest point! And even though the songs on this EP are really beat-blasting, dance-moving, addictive, they have a comfortable, almost relaxed vibe about them. GZRUS would call it the ‘GZ UP feel’, which is what we interpret as the coolest grooves and melodies injected into these songs.
Each track on the “GZ UP” EP really meets its standards and doesn’t disappoint in any department – composition, arrangement, performance and production. If you love uplifting electronic dance music with more than just a wicked beat, the GZRUS duo is what you’re looking for. Without a doubt, this is another EDM winner from the Carrillo Music label!
