Girl Talk – aka Pittsburgh-based producer Gregg Gillis – announces a fall/winter 2022 North American tour, on sale this Friday, July 29 at 10 a.m. PST.
This announcement follows the release of Full Court Press, Girl Talk’s “timeless” (HYPEBEAST) collaborative album with Wiz Khalifa, Big K.R.I.T and Smoke DZA, released this past spring on Asylum/Taylor Gang.
Gillis rose to prominence off his meticulous construction of genre-smashing sample-based music, and these breakneck-paced party jams are championed in his euphoric live shows.
Girl Talk’s forthcoming tour will kick off at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Friday, September 16.
In conjunction with the tour announcement, Girl Talk releases a remix of Full Court Press’ ”Ain’t No Fun,” which blends the vocals with elements of Harry Styles’ hit “As it Was.” Additionally, he’s released an acapella version of Full Court Press as a free download. This is an opportunity for other producers or music enthusiasts to be able to use the vocals from the album in their own remixes or DJ sets.
With each Girl Talk album, from his breakout Night Ripper(2006) to Feed The Animals (2008) and All Day(2010), Gillis’ work has become increasingly detailed and complex. The last several years have seen Gillis focusing on production work for some of his favorite rap artists, including Wiz Khalifa, T-Pain, Tory Lanez, Young Nudy, Bas, Cozz, Erick The Architect (from Flatbush Zombies), Smoke DZA, Don Q, and Freeway. This year’s Full Court Press was a culmination of friendships going back ten-plus years and a “unique intersection of all our work,” says Gillis.
Tickets to Girl Talk at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas start at $29.50 and will be available online on Friday, July 29 at 10 a.m. PST. Venue presales will be available starting Thursday, July 28 at 10 a.m. PST.
