It’s been a big year for New York City-by-way-of-Slovenia-based producer Gramatik (also known as Denis Jašarević), with his headlining performance at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, along with huge sets at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Camp Bisco, BUKU Music + Art Project, Electric Daisy Carnival, and more. This past Friday, October 20th, the producer released Re:Coil Part I, an homage to famous scientist Nikola Tesla. Though he’s currently out on a major European tour, it was recently announced that Gramatik will bring it back to the Five Boroughs for a special New Year’s Eve journey at Terminal 5 on December 31st, making for a celebration you won’t want to miss (get tickets here).
It is undeniable that Gramatik has built an impressive career for himself. From having his earliest productions discovered on Beatport, to being signed to Pretty Lights Music and eventually starting his own Lowtemp Records label in 2013, this hip-hop/electronica creator has witnessed a meteoric rise. The producer has worked with everyone from Soulive/Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno, hip-hop legend Talib Kweli, Chicago’s ProbCause, Exmag, Gibbz, Cherub, and more. He has been on constant grind the last two years producing music, with the release of Epigram in 2016, and now Re:Coil Part I this past weekend, Gramatik is sure to take things to an even higher level as he focuses on themes of science, technology, and futuristic thought, all while expanding upon his own creative and musical universe.
Live For Live Music will release an interview that we did with Gramatik next week, as he discusses the influence Tesla had on his latest release, using his music to make a statement, as well as his recent foray into crytocurrency and the convergence of data with technologies like SingularDTV. For now, take a listen to Re:Coil Part I in its entirety and check out who will be joining him on his New Year’s Eve celebration below:
Re:Coil Part I – Full EP:
On tap to join Gramatik for this New Year’s celebration is Big Wild, Ramzoid, and Cobrayama. Catching the attention of ODESZA back in 2015, Big Wild released the Invincible EP on the duo’s Foreign Family Collective label earlier this year, charting at Number 2 on the dance charts. Think atmospheric, natural, adventurous grooves and you’ll be straight on the musical intentions of the Massachusetts-born Jackson Stell.

Ramzoid is no stranger to Gramatik, as the two worked together on a remix for Flume‘s “Wall Fuck” earlier this year. The young Canadian producer released several of his own singles this year, including “Covers” featuring Amy J Pryce (which dropped last month), ensuring that the up-and-coming producer has been keeping busy in between his frequent live sets out on the road.

Formerly of Exmag, Cobrayama (also known as Mike Iannotto) has been putting together an impressive list of tracks, collabs, and remixes. Some tracks that have garnered him some well-deserved buzz include the 2016 hit “Someday” featuring Gibbz, Gramatik’s “Satoshi Nakamoto” featuring ProbCause and Adrian Lau, and “Crang” with ILLUMNTR. His opening set is guaranteed to set the mood perfectly for this highly anticipated New Year’s Eve performance.
