Gramatik’s tour kicks off with two sold out shows; one at Fillmore Auditorium at another at Red Rocks—both with Pretty Lights on the bill. Not a bad way to get things underway, if you ask us. See tour schedule below.
If you’re not familiar with Gramatik here’s your chance to get acquainted. Beatz & Pieces Vol. 1 is banging, soulful, and just plain hot. Enjoy the free download curtosy of Pretty Lights Music. Gramatik is an extremely versatile producer, and even though he dabbles in genres from dubstep to electro, this record is pure hip-hop. But things go far beyond that in the realm of technique, style and creativity. The tracks are raw, sample based beats, with a technical sophistication and an evolved stylistic twist that question the idea of what a hip-hop beat is and should be. Gramatik's knack for finding and chopping samples brings the soul to the table, and then he injects them with a massive dose of flavor that lands the tracks anywhere between ultra-hype banger and contemplative head-nodder. Either way, Beatz & Pieces Vol. 1 pushes the envelope of hip-hop production.
