GRiZ - Top 10 Breakout EDM Artists

GRiZ killed it this year. Hands down. No questions asked. He’s like the Macklemore of XXL’s Freshman class of 2012. The Michigan native has been curating soulful tunes for years now, but in 2013 he decided to soar towards uncharted heights. Releasing a massive album, relentless touring, spearheading a record label. Did we mention he’s only 23? He’s like the Michael Jordan of electro-soul. Smooth and silky each time he steps up to the decks. Each breath into his sax has the grace and pizzazz of a finger roll. No hesitation when the game is coming down to the wire. Headlining massive festivals, teaming up with Gramatik. The ceiling can’t hold this kid. Hell, the universe can’t hold him.
