“Gramatik is known for lush, big beats that don’t come near the pop-house or “dubstep” tunes dominating today’s dance music community. Instead, the Slovenian-born producer focuses on rhythms and arrangements that incorporate the best parts of countless genres — house, breakbeat, techno, electro, blues, jazz, soul, funk, drum ‘n’ bass — and tosses them together in a thoughtful blend that’s perhaps only rivaled by his label boss, Pretty Lights.”

“I feel like these days, a lot of artists do videos mainly for the sake of web traffic, which makes sense. I think by now, everyone that has a bit of common sense realizes videos are one of, if not the most important tool for promotion and exposure in today’s music industry.”
– Gramatik 
Earlier today, Gramatik premiered his new video for “Solidified” off his new EP #digitalfreedom exclusively on Huffington Post. For this video, the director Brad Hasse created a story around “bokeh” images, which are the circles of light in which the monsters appear throughout the video. “Solidified” was perfect for this concept, as it plays off the tracks darker, heavier sound while still maintaining a certain playfulness.

“He masterfully combines the bits and pieces into a cohesive whole that reflects
his devotion to hip-hop and his blossoming sound.”
 The Untz
“There is freedom in this music that doesn’t follow rigid set lists and frequently
produces a gift of new grooves, created on stage while the audience writhes.”

In addition to touring, Gramatik just released his new EP #digitalfreedom. Since Gramatik has signed with PLM, his career has been based on the platform of free file sharing. Gramatik is dedicating this EP to the fight against the severe internet censorship bills we’ve been hearing about so much in recent months. With this EP,Gramatik hopes to spread awareness about the government acts that seek to regulate the internet
This EP also represents an evolution of Gramatik’s sound, as it strays from his usual chilled out hip-hop driven beats, and enters a more bass heavy realm. Good music does not just stick to one genre, and neither does Gramatik. With this EP, Gramatik wants you to open your ears to the new vibes, and embrace the versatility in his production.
