grillo – Every Day vol​.​1

During the 2014 xmas break I challenged myself to write and finish a beat every day. I thought I’d do it for a week or so, but in the end I held out until May 2015, and wrote about 150 tracks. EVERYDAY is mostly just a straight up almost chronological collection of that work split in 11 volumes. Originally recorded between Dec.2014 and May.2015, with some additional revisions and remixes made in 2019/2020 and bonus demo tracks from the old sessions.

grillo – Every Day Vol​.​10

Pablo Picasso once said: “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” And I truly believe in that. I used to be younger and cockier, and I honestly believed I was talented, I could make great stuff. Meeting other musicians and playing alongside them actually changed my mind.

There’s lots of talented motherfuckers out there guys, and most of them are better than me, better now than i’ll ever be actually. I’m no steph curry but even festus ezeli is a champion now so there’s that.

My only way of doing something decent is just working hard at it and hustling, keeping busy. I get blessed by inspiration every now and then, but I gotta keep working on it.

grillo – Every Day vol​.​9

I’m tired of people quoting that stupid movie at me:

“If you’re good at something never do it for free”

I always felt really wrong about asking for money or valuing what I do with my music as some kind of work, then it dawned on me, I could just forget all about it and do what the fuck I want.

Every night I sit here and play some music, record some stuff, tune out the rest of the world, forget all about the day. It’s therapy, in a way.
It helps me a lot.

If it can do something for you too, then I’m happy to share 🙂

grillo – Every Day vol​.​8

I personally think there’s some of my best stuff ever in this, just sprinkled around. I should probably just quit doing this beat a day thing and focus more on stuff, spend time, make it even better. But then again that ‘better’ is elusive, and in the past I often spent weeks working on something without knowing if in the end i really made a real difference.

Oh and also I think you lose the urgency of the whole process. Beats, electronic, computer based music can be perfect, the real challenge, at least to me, is making it sound less deliberate and more organic, more alive.

grillo – Every Day Vol​.​6

Volume 6 has been a long time coming I know. It feels like I’ve hit a creative wall and all the things I do start sounding the same, at least to me. Finding time to complete a beat every day has indeed been a real struggle lately but I’m still going, even if this takes my tracks into weirder territory. This collection features some more abstract work, weird wobbly grooves like ‘def lowkey’ and more synth heavy works like ‘Zen Pill’

grillo – Every Day Vol​.​4

Tryina make a beat every day for a month now, this is volume 4 of the collection.

I feel weird about it. Done so much stuff in a single month. Not all of that is great of course, and otherwise i’d probably bin some of these tracks, but I got to experiment with a lot of different styles and hone some techniques I had never bothered exploring.

Basically I feared after a while every beat would start to sound the same but instead in order to avoid that I forced myself to go towards weirder places.
