Gramatik has always been an early adopter. It began at the age of 3, when his mother would catch him glued to the radio in his older sister's room, checking out the cassette tapes with American funk, jazz, soul and blues. He started making his first beats on an early PC by the time he was 13, and soon the kid from Portoroz, Slovenia figured out how to harvest the power of free file sharing to build a following throughout the US & Europe. Tracks spread, hype grew, tours followed, and before long his digital persona forged the initial inroads into the US market, securing him both a label and an agency. Gramatik landed on US soil as a fully formed artist who knows how to do things his way. He signed to a label, Pretty Lights Music, that gives all of its music away for free, which went hand in hand with his own philosophy about ''freeing music by making music free''. Soon after, he scooped up his hometown crew and moved to Brooklyn, NY.
And to ring in 2013 Gramatik has announced the launch of his own record label Lowtemp and offered his fans a first glimpse of the song with his video for "Bluestep". The cut combines the vibes of raw 50's and 60's blues with all kinds of EDM genres - the result is a signature Gramatik genre clash, also what he refers to as "Bluestep". It's a dynamic mixture of blues and dubstep, a plethora of screaming guitar, howling vocals and big bass, capturing the raw energies of both music worlds in a cohesive, yet outrageous picture.
