About Gary Gritness

Hailing from the post-industrial city of Nancy, France, is bad boy and multi-instrumentalist funkateer Gary Gritness aka Slikk Tim.

Killer electro funk blending nowadays influences from the streets of Detroit, Oakland and Atlanta around his trademark soulful sound.

Using an oldschool setup, Gary's music is dirty, warm & funky as hell, and is best enjoyed in his powerful live shows featuring masterful vocoder action and hard-core keyboards aggression.

As a session musician Slikk Tim has worked for many household names including Orlando Voorn, Dam-Funk, Los Hermanos & many others.

The Sugar Cane Chronicles, Volume 1
(Hypercolour / 12", 2016)

"A feel-good record bathed in buttery bass and sunlit synths.
Its melodic dexterity speaks to Gary Gritness's years
as a session player.
He's at his best on these tracks and never gets
carried away with his virtuosic performances."

The Adventures Of Gary Gritness, Chapter 1
(Clone Crown Records / 12", 2015)

"It’s unsurprising that Mad Mike is a fan;
the tracks here are undisputedly influenced by Detroit’s
P-funk and electro past, but with an added rawness and intensity.
Gary's obvious musical skills mean that there’s a expansive feel
to the melodies and composition that's hard to match."

Collaborations:

Jacob Mafuleni & Gary Gritness -
"Atuka Mhondoro 808 / Chikoni"
(Nyami Nyami Records / 12", 2016)

"Gary Gritness intuitively produced the talent of zimbabwean
master Jacob Mafuleni's mbira ceremonies rhythmic patterns
on his TR 808 drum machine.
This natural and respectful collaboration resulted
in two already classic ‘afro techno’ tracks."
