Griff X – GriffTape Demo

May 6, 2014

GriffTape is a bulky lo-fi alternative hip-hop mixtape I released in January. It’s a collection of songs that I worked on since 2011. Technical problems, limited resources, and stress all lead to the delay in its release.
 
The GriffTape Demo is an abridged more palatable version of my hip-hop mixtape reduced to 29 minutes of rhyming. It also serves as a general home demo for Griff X as a hip-hop artist. GriffTape was previously released with a CD version and unabridged Internet version.

Griff X – Ambient Sessions

May 6, 2014

Ambient Sessions is a seamless compilation of soundscape songs composed over the last four years. It features segments and full-tracks from The Dada Theory (2010) to Chakra Deluxe (2014).
 
My love for ambient music stems from listening to lots of college radio late at night as a young teenager and being entranced by artists like Brian Eno and Aphex Twin. Ambient Sessions is an hour and a half ride of psychedelic immersion.
