GRiZ also isn’t your typical EDM producer; he produces a unique blend of diverse sampling and smooth melodic lines with electro and dubstep-inspired beats, making up a genre he calls “electro-soul” or “future funk.” His music ranges from tracks that sound like they’re straight out a brostep album (“Blastaa”) to songs fusing hip-hop, jazz, and soul (“Fall in Love Too Fast”). As an avid saxophone player, GRiZ has been known to break out the sax during shows to play along with his tracks, such as in his signature track, “Smash the Funk.” Anyone who isn’t familiar with GRiZ should check out his Soundcloud and website, where you can listen to and download his music (yes, he releases it all for free!). You’ll find quite an extensive range of originals, remixes, and collaborations, all of which promise a fresh perspective countering the dulling mainstream electronic scene of today.
Thanks to Bennett Alvaro for the intro.
Here are Noah and Michael's personal highlights from the conference.
11:18 a.m. You’re awake! It only took two snoozes, and you can enjoy this beautiful Sunday — by staying inside and cleaning. You absolutely have to. It’s getting harder and harder to ignore the giant pile of clothes on your floor, and your roommate has started giving you dirty looks, so you’re going to do absolutely everything today: laundry, vacuum, make the bed, dust. You’ll have the most productive spring cleaning day ever!

I’m stepping up my game and really leaving campus. Many of you have probably gone to Nassau Street and explored Palmer Square, but I’m recommending you try out a café that is the very epitome of locally-owned deliciousness, even if it’s a bit of a walk. Just head straight down Witherspoon Street, past the Public Library and past the graveyard. Turn left onto Leigh Street, walk a block, and you’re at Café 44, in the real Princeton (and it was only an extra 10 minutes away). In that sense, maybe “Nassau Coffee Review” is an inappropriate title for this series of reviews, but I don’t just literally mean the street itself. I’m also referring to the slightly more nebulous area that is walking distance from Princeton’s campus. It’s about when, on a Saturday morning instead of heading straight to Wu/Wilcox, you pause and decide to do something special and head somewhere on Nassau. Maybe in this case you’ll head a bit beyond.
I’m listening to the third track from Gorilla Gorilla’s eponymous EP when the chorus hits me with surprising force. Not because of anything musically jarring -- in fact, the raw, breathy melody from the band’s singer and guitarist Molly Bolten is absolutely stunning. I’m suddenly struck by the band’s maturity. I can’t believe I’m listening to five students. The track I’m enjoying, “Haven,” treads the line between hip hop, neo-soul, and rock with confidence and playfulness. In venturing into well-trodden genres like hip hop, that are steeped with such precedent and such pre-defined sound, Gorilla Gorilla has me floored by their refreshing openness and boldness.
I'm going to come out and say it: I like James Franco. Ever since he postedthis, I'm a big fan. When I found out that he was on campus this afternoon filming and directing scenes for his new movie, "The Sound and the Fury," I naturally dropped everything to look for him. While a selfie was probably the end goal, I have to admit that some part of me was hoping we might recreateTHIS. I think it was the 20th time that I walked past the Brown Parking Lot at a glacial pace when I realized that the member of the crew giving me nasty looks was the closest I would get to James Franco today.
Continuing the recent trend of surprise releases (a la Beyoncé), Skrillex (aka Sonny Moore) dropped his LP debut,Recess,yesterday. This release came after recent a Reddit AMA and a mysterious Alien Ride app that slowly released the songs starting at 6:30pm Monday night. The album itself hasn’t actually been physically released yet, but the tracks are available for listening and streaming in various places online, as well as oniTunes.
If you’re sick of spending days on end in Frist, try heading down Witherspoon. Before you hit the Princeton Public Library, take a left and turn the corner. There, you'll find Infini-T Tea House and Vegetarian Café!
Porter Robinson has been relatively inactive for almost a year, since releasingEasy, a collaboration with Mat Zo, last April. Before that, fans might remember Beatport #1 anthem “Language” (2012), the track that catapulted Porter Robinson to the top of the EDM world.
If you haven't yet had the time to preorder Susan Patton’s new self-help book, “Marry Smart,” and are just itching to get your hands on it, fear not! The Prox brings you some of the book’s greatest gems of advice and wisest words of counsel.
Princeton students are a diverse bunch. We sing, act and dance, we enjoy reading and organic chemistry, we are involved in social organizations and investment banks. But if there’s one thing that brings us all together, it’s studying. And where you study says a lot about you as a person.

Here is a handy-dandy playlist of some of the most underrated grunge songs of the 1990s, perfect for exploring your inner wintry angst--because spring can't come soon enough.
Ah, late meal. A privilege that every underclassman has and every upperclassman wants, an additional three hours of utter food ecstasy. But how exactly do we approach the $5.95 lunch and $6.95 dinner limits, all the while abiding by guidelines, like no more than two pre-packaged items at any one time, that stand in the way of all our food dreams? Worry not, for here is a guide that’s got your back!
St. Vincent is full of these celebratory moments -- steeped in and fascinated by danger, by risks, even by pain. Take "Huey Newton" and "Regret" (arguably the most triumphant song after "Birth in Reverse"). "Huey" starts slow, like the descent into a drug-induced slumber. But what feels stilted gracefully ascends to this revelatory realm similar to a dream - "Pleasure dot loathing dot Huey dot Newton / oooh / it was a lonely lonely winter..." - and then, Clark jolts us into something else entirely, filled with gloriously grunge guitar and ferocity - "Entombed in a shrine of zeroes and ones / you know...", she snarls. The song's progression is definitely difficult to map, as you can tell by this brief attempt. Just know that "Huey" could be one of the best tracks of 2014.
Here's "Nothing But Trouble"! Maybe you'll buy the whole album, maybe not. Who knows.
