Its Strange Its Creative Its Probcause

One should take note from Colin Grimm, or Probcause as most refer him to. Seemingly working round the clock on different projects day to day he was just featured on Gramatik‘s latest album release Epigram. He was included in Back To The Future, which was also released in earlier months on Prob’s Drifters project through Lowtemp. Satoshi Nakamoto, named after the bitcoin creator is the second track on Epigram to be added to Colins music library.

While stacking bitcoins as an independent creative artist, Prob joined the list of talented artists to remix Louis the Child‘s track It’s Strange featuring K.Flay. Probcause of course has been perfecting music production and worked on this remix with Drew Mantia adding a hip hop beat and some verses. They then invite Kat V to top it off with her violin. K.Flay having been raised outside of Chicago and Louis the Child, Prob and Drew being from the city; this song is got some heavy mid-west influence!

Aside from his music projects Colin, if you have followed him long enough, you will come to notice has an amazing talent in visual arts. Dabbling in surreal art and videos Colin creates some real interesting pieces. Even publishing coloring book in which can fill in the colors of the creatures in Colins head and which you should totally buy. Colin also released this animation he created with Elijah Alvarado recently, getting to politics but with at twist. If you are familiar with WWE this will be even more funnier.

Probcause Adds His Finishing Touch to Native Son

Like the man said himself, if he’s not making animations of Raekwon, or even working on creative art in general he is making music with him. As part of a remix EP, Probcause met up with Gramatik, Raekwon & Orlando Napier to add a verse to the lowtemp beat Native Son. Over the guitar solo and piano chords progressions Raekwon makes his presence known as Orlando keeps song connected. Prob deals his words without breaking the song flow. The quality of the track is sustained with the live music aspect.

Lowtemp artists are all gifted with the talent and motivation to play live instruments or midi controllers. Prob is no stranger to live audio as well which can possibly be one of the reasons he is welcomed in the label. Any Probcause show you attend you will see multiple collabs and live work on stage. Cofresi usually is behind the drum set and you can expect to see artists like Donnie Trumpet, Hologram Kizzie, KSRA and other Chicago Artists depending on his set. This next month in February you can catch Prob touring with Lettuce, another live act that produced a song with Chicago’s own Manic Focus, in the West Coast with more tour dates soon to be announced!

Probcause – I Feel U & A Probmatik Surprise

prob

ProbCause, one of the more busier artists coming out of Chicago just gets busier adding more and more projects to his resumee. ZRO FOX, a collab project with Hologram Kizzie has been one of his latest acts to work on, and performed flawlessly. This next project comes as a surprise to fans of Prob. I Feel U, a track with an excellent producer Dro, is not only an original but a collaboration with the mic handler himself as Probcause adds producer to his repertoire.

But that is not the only great news coming from the Chi Town local. Probcause made a special visit and a special announcement at a very popular event. During Electric Forest weekend Probcause has had the opportunity to perform a live song on stage with Gramatik. Not even with his track Probmatik Monster Stomp, but with a brand new track he has been working on with the New York artist. A preview of a bigger collab project. Not much info on a release date yet but keep an eye out for Probcause’s collab album with Gramatik. Without a doubt, that will be a super smooth and addictive project that we cannot wait to hit the replay button on.

Probcause & Friends

Local Chicagoan Colin Grimm otherwise known as Probcause is gettin known quite quickly from fans to artists and labels. It is his unique style of rapping and the energy he brings to a stage for an audience. It is his music itself that has alot of energy on its own so it is hard not to get known, only to feeding his ego!  Getting the attention by some real dope artists too.

Prob has turned the heads of the Lowtemp crew and other artists alike and the music they make together is pretty perfect. It is like perfect match in creative minds. Recently hookin up with another Chicago artist Manic Focus to make a sexy remix of Exmags track Tilt Mode with Gibbz. Prob is not unknown to Exmag either, having made a track together on his latest album Waves and working with Lowtemp creator Gramatik on a real cool super creative beat that will make you wanna grab a beer n party till you get loud!


Speaking of collabing with dope artists Colin has started another project aside from Probcause. Linking up with Hologram Kizzie, aka Psalm One, to give you Zro Fox. Get it? Pretty cool, and they announced the collab with a serisouly dope music video for their single Might Not, as a preamble to their album to be released later.

Hologram Kizzie and Prob have been workin together for a while since 2008 from live sets at the Bottom Lounge up to Lincoln Hall in Chicago, to working on a few songs here and there on records such as the Recipe Vol. 1 & 2 covering multiple genres. Recently playing here in our very own city of Chicago in Lincoln Hall, is where they first layed down Zro Fox’s single Might Not and it was magnificent.

Watching the two flow together on the mic so flawlessly was amazing. They work very well together, them and Kat V the beautuful violinist, Cofresi and other artists that Prob likes to collab with frequently and bring up on stage. Manic Focus is also known to work with a violinist, Colin n JmaC share some similar interests! Colin definitely knows how to spot and pick a good artist that would be compatible to collab with him. Having a show with Big Gigantic at the Aragon Ballroom this Saturday the 14th, I am excited to see what Probcause has next up his sleeve.
