Get your funky shoes out; is coming to town. The Slovenian native who ascended through the ranks of the /glitch scene as a part of the family is more on top of his game than ever these days. As a recent founder of his own label, Lowtemp records, and as a staple act in the circuit over the last year, (real name Denis Jasarevic) made a name for himself his incredible work ethic. He’s put out three volumes of soulful hip hop instrumentals (Street Bangerz vol.1-3) as well as several other singles and LPs between 2008 and 2010. In addition, Gramatik catches a broad array of followers due to his fluid ability to adapt to many styles, most notably on display on his -oriented album #digitalfreedom released in 2012, but also his incorporation of musicians to his sets. Oh yea and did I mention he gives nearly all his away as free downloads?

His collaborations with young gun , creating , has yielded some seriously heavy results (check out their tracks “DLIMF” and “My People”) that show a good blend of both of their love of and funk beats mixed with heavy-hitting glitch and drops.

Another widely talked about collab between Gramatik, , and (Big ) took by storm this year with an electronic orchestra of two saxophones, electric guitars, drumkits, MPCs, synthesizers and more. Recently, Gramatik has begun a electronic band endeavor calling themselves , who made their debut with a dope ‘No Diggity’ /mashup under Lowtemp Records.

The group was also featured with on the single ‘Obviously’ from Gramatik’s latest EP Age of Reason.

The recent sound coming from the Gramatik beat laboratory is a synthesis of his last five years of work: a funky heavy blend of bluesy live guitar riffs, soulful vocalists, and electronic screeches, whirls, and womps. I believe that Denis has truly found his sound as of late by combining newer elements of heavy dubstep and glitch with his trademark groove of blues guitar and . This coming weekend will see him unleash this funky bluestep fury on the legendary in with the help of openers and serious up and comer , who has been smashing the trill dubstep to bits recently.
