KrisG184 releases new EP record, ‘Funky Dance Sessions’



The composer and performer of music known as KrisG184 has released his latest and greatest EP record, titled, “Funky Dance Sessions.” The album is comprised of six tracks for a whopping two and a half hours’ worth of music listening, making for a remarkably comprehensive treatment of KrisG184 material. It is only an extended-play release by the relatively small number of tracks, themselves, though the longest of them spans nearly 40 minutes, the shortest of them, 10.


The new album has passionately inspired titles such as “Eternallove,” Lovelovelove,” Makelovegood,” and “Loverape,” and is book-ended by “Cryptic” and “Etm.” They are the most significant releases from KrisG184 since his “2.30am” release in July of this year. While that song featured jazzy brass on top of KrisG’s signature house music beats, “Funky Dance Sessions” is populated mostly by his DJ skills as a mix master and rhythm man. Its title is entirely appropriate.


KrisG184 (AKA Kris Grayer) cites as main artistic influences David Guetta, Carl Cox, and Pete Tong. He has been mixing music for more than a decade, having begun his music career using turntables in the traditional style. He was awarded a position at Julliard School of Music in New York to study music technology before he was 20 years old. Having left school to pursue a career in bass trombone, he has worked with both Elton John and Adele, and recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra. Venues at which he has performed included many of the most famous in existence, including England’s Wembley Stadium for a crowd of 90,000, the Netherlands’ Amsterdam Arena for 45,000, and England’s Royal Albert Hall (with Adele).


KrisG184 is originally from Kansas City, MO, but moved to New York after the tragic murder of his father. KrisG184 spent a hard five years on the streets, mingling with rappers and other musicians who influenced his sound before winning his spot at Julliard and going on to become a professional musician.

KrisG has been noted for saying, “[My music] is about how precious life is, and why everyone must enjoy themselves as much as possible because good times won’t last forever.” With regard to “Funky Dance Sessions,” he writes that its message to the listening public is, “Get out there and party hard.”

“Funky Dance Sessions” by KrisG184 is available online worldwide beginning late September, 2013.
