About

Good music is felt, not heard. Apparently Gramatik understood that at the age of 3, when his

mother would catch him glued to the radio in his older sister’s room. Not unlike other great

European artists of the past, the Slovenian producer was heavily influenced by American

music early on, taking in everything from Funk and Jazz to Soul and Blues.

Gramatik's Beatz & Pieces Vol 1. mix-tape (out June 8 on Pretty Lights Music) is his first

release on Pretty Lights Music and builds on the amazing momentum created from his last

release No Shortcuts and the Street Bangerz mix-tape series. Gramatik explains, "The Beatz

& Pieces series comes as a successor to the popular Street Bangerz series which was my

first work as a producer. I never really considered these volumes to be albums.  I always

looked at them as hip-hop beats on steroids. They are still raw, sample based beats, but witha

evolved arrangements and wrapped in a fine layer of live instrumentation.  And the reason I

started adding live instruments is because I felt that classic hip-hop beats without vocals lose

me after two minutes.  I want to keep the listener through the whole track!"

With over 80,000 tracks sold on the influential electronic music site Beatport.com in the past 2

years, topping all kinds of genre charts, Gramatik has matured from a curious kid attracted by

soundscapes, to a world-class producer.  Gramatik's music quickly gained steam after he first

began posting it online in 2008 and earned him nominations for ‘’Best Chill Out Artist’’ and

‘’Best Chill Out Track’’ at the 2010 Beatport Music Awards and taking 2nd place in both

categories. After posting a recent remix of Led Zepplin's "Stariway to Heaven" he shot to

number 1 on the HypeMachine chart without so much as even a post on his facebook.

Gramatik is now known in electronic and hip-hop circles around the globe, touring with the

likes of Pretty Lights, The Glitch Mob, Mimosa, Two Fresh and many others. This summer

we'll see him performing at festivals across the US and alongside label head Pretty Lights at

his annual (and sold-out!) Red Rocks show.
