Since GRRL's club-crushing "Go Up" on C/C/S last year, he's gone on to become a trusted tastemaker on Nest and a fixture on NTS Radio. With "Workouts", GRRL returns with seven tracks of Ha Dance twists, mutations, and recombinations. "Warmup" pressurizes the cabin and makes way for "Hands" featuring vocals from Japan's vogue culture mainwoman Koppi Mizrahi. "Do It" and "Drop Ha" contort Ha tracks into new forms while "Whoa" runs through Bmore breaks. The tumbling title track "Workouts" is the most frenetic, leading to a much need "Cooldown" outro. This is the one you've been waiting for. Advance support from Nina Las Vegas, Plastician, & Teki Latex.
i love the vogue/ballroom and baile funk elements. combine that with modern hip-hop beats that kind of remind me of KAYTRANADA and it makes an album that, when played while doing anything around the house, WILL cause you to randomly drop it to the floor in whatever room you're in. mcbigmouth
