We could start at the history of Motown, or even the history of Electronic Music, however class is not in session so we'll keep it brief. It's Fall 2009 in East Lansing, Grant Kwicienski was just starting off at Michigan State University and began producing under the moniker GK. Soon there after he linked up with some like minded individuals and they formed L.E.A.K (Lansing Electronic Artist Kollective). Playing local gigs and basement parties, sharpening their performances skills, the group quickly started building a reputation as the top producers in town.
Fast forward to Sophomore year at MSU, GK becomes GRiZ and not soon after drops a remix of an Aerosmith song on Soundcloud (At the time, Soundcloud was not the main stream site it is today, more of a glitch hop / nerdy producer community). Grant's 'Dream On Remix' took off, catching the attention of Nick Guarino a young blogger with a fresh site known as 'This Song Is Sick'. It even caught the attention of Derek Vincent Smith, who soon reached out to GRiZ and asked if Grant would be interesting in supporting Pretty Lights on some upcoming shows.
It's no surprise that GRiZ's music started resonating with fans both on and off line. Relentlessly working on his debut album, with Ableton files that would put other producers to shame, Grant's production skills were remarkable. Successfully crafting his own sound, GRiZ released 'Mad Liberation' to rave reviews. A free album that set the foundation for what would come, 'The Liberators' were born soon after. As the Liberators came together and started organizing food drives in their local areas, Grant realized we needed to create a brand that could not only foster this positive energy but also empower people all over the world to be the best they can be... Eventually 'All Good Records' was born!
