To kick off February this year, the world famous Gem & Jam festival will be taking place for it’s 7th year, in Tucson, Arizona. Featuring music from Michal Menert, Nit Grit, Vibesquad, Random Rab, and Polish Ambassador, and live painting from Alex Grey, Allyson Grey, Oliver Vernon, Damon Sole, and Des10, this is going to be a very rare exhibition of music, art, creativity, diversity, and acceptance of everything amazing.
Gem & Jam will be taking place February 7-9th, which, incredibly, is right before the 59th Annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Show…aka…the largest gem show in the United States. With almost half a million in town for both events, you should probably just take a week and a half off for this adventure…

Once again, Nit Grit & Stephan Jacobs have left me speechless. I can still write though… There could not be a better name for this track! GAME OVER! Nit Grit and Stephan Jacobs have proven once again that California will stay ahead of the game with the bass music. The new Pizza Party ep is killer. Pick that up!
Do you believe in space travel?! I sure do when I got Nit Grit bumpin’ at full blast from my King Kong speakers! Really though…who doesn’t love the idea of space travel? Team Ganjaology will be in orbit by the year 2020!
These two new Nit Grit tracks titled Wake Up, and I Made This For You, are beautifully crafted works of audio art, crafted to make your ears bleed when played at high volume, even if they are being protected by your space helmet. Get ready to launch and press play!
WAKE UPI MAD THIS FOR YOU
Epic intros, intricate synthesizers, the HEAVIEST bass, you feel like you’re in a club on Jupiter…yeah…you’re listening to Nit Grit.
