Grab This Thing (2008)

The Grip


The GRIP have stepped into the footprints created by legendary masters such as Lonnie Smith, Big John Patton and The Mar-Keys putting the focus on funky rhythms that move the masses and keep heads bobbing. Dedicated to revamping the hottest tracks of yesteryear while mixing in original compositions and new looks at popular tunes from across the spectrum, The GRIP are blending genres and breaking stereotypes to push a fresh sound on their debut EP, “Grab This Thing.” The release ranges from the smooth stylings of Prince’s classic “Controversy” to a smoking take on Ennio Morricone’s “Farewell to Cheyenne” from the famed “Once Upon A Time In The West” film score. The album also sports high-bouncing boogie with the original composition “Tutwiler,” and rounds out with funky, riff-filled versions of the soul classics “Jan Jan” and “Grab This Thing.”
