Los Angeles-based artist and producer Gryffin releases a new single, “Feel Good” with Illenium and featuring Daya via all digital retailers through Polydor/Darkroom/Interscope Records.

Emotionally charged and irresistibly high-energy, “Feel Good” is powered by hypnotic melody, massive beats, and a soulful vocal performance from multiplatinum singer/songwriter Daya, who is fresh off her Grammy Award win for the multi-platinum smash “Don’t Let Me Down” with The Chainsmokers.

In crafting the arrangement with Illenium, Gryffin drew equally from his edgy ingenuity as a producer and his carefully honed musicality as a longtime guitarist and classically trained pianist.

“The lyrics that Daya came up with had so much intensity to them — writing about that significant other in your life who puts you in a positive, happy state of mind, even when bad things may be happening in your life or in the world. I wanted the production to reflect that intensity, but at the same time create a really positive vibe,” explains Dan Griffith, who’s made music under the name Gryffin since 2014. “My goal with the song was to find that balance, and I ended up hitting it by adding a lot of synth sounds I’d never used before, and by bringing in different guitar textures and then flipping them in a new way. That’s what the Gryffin project is about overall: making electronic music but using real guitar and real piano so that there’s this organic feeling to every song.”

Forbes 30 Under 30: Who Earned A Spot In EDM

Forbes 30 Under 30: Who Earned A Spot In EDM

EDM was represented well in this year's 30 Under 30.

Forbes Magazine’s ‘30 Under 30′ segment has become one of the premium sources for young people who are looking for some inspiration. This year’s music portion showcased 30 of the best young talents, with six of the spots being directly related to electronic music.

This year’s 30 ‘Under 30’ features two electronic artists who have certainly skyrocketed in popularity throughout the course of 2017: Gallant and Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers.

Gallant, 25, is known for his unique blend of R&B, alternative rock, soul, and electronic sounds. He released his debut album Ology in 2016 to great reception and a Grammy nomination, and is expected to do even greater things in the future.

Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers has undeniably been at the top of 2016’s charts consistently alongside other member Alex Pall. But at just 27 years old, Taggart has landed a spot on this year’s 30 Under 30, as well as three Grammy nominations: Best Pop/Duo Performance, Best Dance Recording and Best New Artist.

Another musician on the list is Daya, 18, who’s a past collaborator with The Chainsmokers on ‘Don’t Let Me Down.’ She released her debut pop album in October.

Now, let’s not forget the behind the scenes, managerial side of EDM. Two DJs’ managers earned a spot on the list as well.

The first, Derek Dolin, started out as an intern with Conan O’Brien and working with Kathy Griffin. Now, he serves as the day-to-day manager to Calvin Harris at just 28 years old. Listmate Michael George, 27, discovered the teenager who would later be known around the world: Martin Garrix.

Don't Let Me Down

New York-based duo The Chainsmokers blew our ears out with their hit singles “#Selfie” in 2014 and “Roses” in 2015. However, they didn’t stop there. After reaching top charts on Beatport, HypeM, and Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, The Chainsmokers condition our souls yet again with their newly released single “Don’t Let Me Down”. But wait, that’s not the end of it! Illenium, Win & Woo, Spag Heddy, and T-Mass step in and have at it, remixing the new single and have all provoked us into begging for more. Just as you’ve all asked, your desires have been compensated. With new remixes from W&W, Ephwurd, Rick Remedy, and Zomboy, I couldn’t even imagine any more unique takes. Melding high energy, futuristic feels, and trap, The Chainsmokers teams up with Disruptor Records/Columbia Records to bring an extensive remix package. Check out the fire package and let us know which one you bump with best.

Of all the artists who had a major 2015, The Chainsmokers are probably the group we’re most excited about. Yes, Jack Ü and Major Lazor broke records and basically dominated everything, and Zedd had one of the greatest album promotional campaigns of all time, but The Chainsmokers have a really solid chance of becoming the real next big thing in 2016 and we’re stoked.

The next step in that process is their new tune with Daya and Emily Warren called “Don’t Let Me Down.” While they stuck their toes into trap on “Kanye,” this one is the first true plunge. Many comparisons are being made to The xx and Diplo, and I can totally see why – it has that soft and melodic guitar coupled with hard hitting trap elements.

The Chainsmokers call this their real follow-up to “Roses,” despite the fact that they’ve put out a couple tracks in the interim. Check it out below.

So we know we have released a couple tracks since Roses, of which we all love, but we would consider this as our follow up to Roses. We consider this to be our most complete track and just like Roses came together in one session for the most part. We wrote this track with the talented Emily Warren who you might recognize from DLMD and with Scott. The trap sound is a custom sound we made using one of loupvcks soundpacks actually…haha shout out guys! and you can tell we were really feeling the XX vibes when did this and actually had JUST bought the electric guitar we used so we were really feeling it. On top of this all we were lucky enough to have Daya get involved who so talented and did an amazing job on the vocal! Just make sure you stick around till the 3rd drop!

We also just want to say thanks for the ongoing support! We cant believe our 2015 and we know we took a couple months off from releasing music, but we spent it working on so much new stuff so we hope you are ready!

Note from us: We played this as our encore song on our friendzone tour so some of you may recognize it!
