Gramatik continues to prove himself as a relentless musical force, consistently putting out new releases and making people lose their marbles at his sold-out shows all over the world. Following his seminal 2016 album Epigram and subsequent remix EP’s he kept the streak going all year, while also gracing the stage at some of the biggest summer festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Metropop, Camp Bisco, Lollapalooza, Moonrise, Red Rocks and more.
In January of 2017 there was a long-awaited reunion with another funk mastermind, GRiZ, on “As We Proceed”. The new GRiZMATiK track received excellent reviews from outlets like Dancing Astronaut, Run The Trap, EDM.com and plenty more, while also exceeding 1.2M plays on SoundCloud and reaching 2M on Spotify. Gramatik followed it up with a remix of Flume’s track “Wall Fuck” (1.22M plays on SC) which he produced with young Canadian artist, Ramzoid. The track was premiered on notorious Colorado-based blog Thissongissick, reached #1 on SoundCloud’s electronic chart and also performed well on Hype Machine. Then it was time to focus on the three singles leading up to his latest EP, “Re:Coil Part I”; on “Recovery” Gramatik teamed up with old buddy Eric Krasno and the bright, melodic jam caught the attention of Billboard who snagged it for an exclusive premiere. The next single, “Voyager Twins” was a collaboration with mysterious, Armada-affiliated act, fittingly called Galactic Marvl and on the last single from new EP he joined forces with new Lowtemp signee, Balkan Bump. The single’s title “Aymo” translates to “let’s go” in the majority of ex-Yugoslavian countries, including Slovenia, where Gramatik is from originally.
Appropriately, the single dropped just before Gramatik headed out on a huge fall tour across the EU, visiting 26 cities along the way. During the tour, on October 20th, he treated his fans to the release of “Re:Coil Pt. I’' EP and just like the year before when he was dropping “Epigram”, the release party for the heavily anticipated new release took place at the legendary Paris venue, Zenith.
Another important milestone was awaiting on November 9th during his show in Zurich. As one of the pioneering artists embracing crypto-culture and the new blockchain-based technologies that work towards decentralization, he launched his own token, GRMTK, in collaboration with SingularDTV. This revolutionary new approach promises a convergence of network and data that will allow creators to bypass gatekeepers and intermediaries and seize control of their intellectual property. The full goal was reached within 24 hours and all together 2,3 million dollars in ETH were raised with hardly breaking a sweat, signaling that people are open to the new distribution models. Gramatik will be testing them in early 2018 when his follow-up “Re:Coil Part II” EP will be completed and ready to drop. The revolution will be tokenized!
Haywyre consists of Martin Vogt, who has been studying piano since the age of six. His interest in the production of various genres of electronic music and piano instrumentals began growing when he lived in Austria; there, he was exposed to jazz and hip-hop for the first time. Shortly after moving back to the U.S. in 2008, Haywyre was created.
Balkan Bump is the newly rebranded project from trumpet player/producer Will Magid, based in Oakland. Will is an ethnomusicologist who has been gathering inspiration for his music on all continents, save for Antarctica. A set of his compositions can take you to a Cuban beach, a West African wedding party or a Serbian night club, all within 15 minutes. The musical pieces he is putting out are buoyant jams packed with rich layers of celebratory horns, bouncing percussion, classical strings and even a bit of ambient noise. In the past Will has performed with artists including Pretty Lights, Beats Antique and Bonobo, but is now focusing on his solo music. Just recently Will teamed up with Gramatik and Talib Kweli on “Aymo”, one of the tracks from his upcoming EP that evolved into a collaboration, and was recently released on Lowtemp Records. Gramatik’s independent label will also provide a home for Will’s first EP under the Balkan Bump moniker, expected to drop in early 2018.
