Pretty Lights Music’s Gramatik will hit up Webster Hall on August 31st in support of his latest EP, #digitalfreedom. The album, true to its name, can be found for free on the internet with all of Gramatik’s music. Gramatik’s live shows are known for their high level and energy and unique sound, blending influences of hip hop with other electronic elements. The Huffington Post’s Kia Makarechi described Gramatik’s sound recently as “lush, big beats that don’t come near the pop-house or “dubstep” tunes dominating today’s dance music community”, which is actually quite accurate. It’s hard to exactly pinpoint Gramatik’s sound because it’s always evolving and changing.
Live For Live Music caught up with Gramatik this past March at the Snowball Festival where he described his evolving sound and new EP #digitalfreedom, telling L4LM, “I’m very dynamic creature, so I don’t like to get stuck in one style for a long time. Last year I did ‘Beatz and Pieces’ which was mainly like my kind of hip hop album and now I’m about to drop this new album which is going to be like highlit energy level with Glitch Hop and Dubstep.”
Since being signed to Pretty Lights Music, Gramatik’s star has been rising with various high profile festival gigs around the country. His remix of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway to Heaven’ shot to #1 on HypeMachine and he has over 100,000 tracks sold on Beatport.
Gramatik will be joined by fellow Pretty Lights Music artist Paul Basic, as well as Canadian turntablist Kid Koala, who is also a member of Hip Hop supergroup Deltron 3030 along with Del The Funky Homosapien and Dan the Automator. Throughout his over 15 year career, Kid Koala has worked with everyone from the Gorillaz to Amon Tobin.
