Featured on ‘RE:Coil Pt.1″ EP Out October 20th Via Lowtemp
New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and for everybody who plan on spending it in New York City, here’s an idea of where to get your party on. After 2016’s NYE extravaganza with Bassnectar in Alabama, this year Gramatik plans on taking his home crowd from the five boroughs on a musical journey to remember. And he’s bringing a hell of a line-up to make the night that bit of extra special.
After working tirelessly all year on a bunch of new music and making stops at some of the biggest summer festivals, Gramatik will spend the months leading up to the event touring all over Europe in support of his latest release, “Re:Coil Part I” (out on October 20th via Lowtemp Records). The Re:Coil Tour pays homage to the legendary mad scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla and his efforts to make the world just a little bit nicer. As an outspoken advocate for rational thought, the new EP finds Slovenian-born producer embracing the scientific/technological themes on almost every track and evolving the sound he became famous for even further, yet still managing to include a clear nod to his beat-making roots. With almost 30 shows on the touring schedule for October and November, you know he’ll be in top form for the longest night of the year.
And there’s at least three more reasons why Terminal 5 is the place to be when the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, as the evening will see a number of incredible artists joining the expedition into the world of beats, bass and big drops. Big Wild of the Foreign Family Collective fame, needs no special introduction ever since he caught the attention of Odesza back in 2015 – the 2017 EP “The Invincible” and subsequent huge US tour, earned him praise from some of the top names in the game. Similar buzz is surrounding one of the most unique young producers out there- Ramzoid. Ramzoid worked with Gramatik on the excellent remix of Flume’s track “Wall Fuck” while also putting out a number of hard-hitting originals this year, and is just about ready to take the world by storm. Last, but not least, the versatile DJ and producerCobrayama (ex member of Exmag) will undoubtedly get the party started with his vast array of head-nodding beats.
New York City – get ready for the wildest party of the year!
Gramatik has kept himself busy all throughout the first half of 2017 with a number of new projects and collaborations, following the release of his latest album, Epigram, and subsequent remix EP’s last year. It’s certainly not an easy thing to do when you have to balance studio work with a packed tour schedule that takes you all over the world and to some of the biggest summer festivals out there. But the Slovenian producer seems to have hit a stride as he is regularly releasing new material while also joining the line-up of huge events like EDC Las Vegas and Lollapalooza.
Just before his epic return to a packed Red Rocks amphitheater with a revamped stage production in June, he released a new single “Recovery” with long-time collaborator Eric Krasno. It was a follow-up to the first taster of what he’s been working on, “As We Proceed,” the long-awaited new single with GRiZ that was released in January, and a remix of Flume’s track “Wall Fuck” which he made in collaboration with young producer on the rise, Ramzoid.
Now fans can expect a new batch of tracks Gramatik cooked up during his “recovery time,” the result of a pretty bad leg injury at the end of 2016. After sweet-sounding summer vibes of the last single, his brand new “Voyager Twins” finds him venturing back into bass-heavier territories. To add extra intrigue, the track is a co-production with the newest mysterious character that hit the DJ circuits, Galactic Marvl. Aside from being connected with the well-known Armada record label, not much is known about this galactic traveller who transcends the boundaries of genre. Whoever Galactic Marvl may be, hee or she looks to be very well versed in crafting tracks perfectly suited for laid-back listening sessions and big festival stages alike. This collaboration obviously leans to the latter, and is bound to rock the crowds all summer long and beyond.
“Voyager Twins” is out July 21st via Gramatik’s label Lowtemp Records, and stay tuned for the official “Voyager Twins” music video soon to come. In addition, you can catch Gramatik live around the world, including the return of his Re:Coil stage design on October 21st at Paris’ Zenith.

Gramatik’s Lowtemp Previews Upcoming Compilation w/ New Single From Benjamin Shock & Marina Martensson “It’s A Shame”
BENJAMIN SHOCK & MARINA MARTENSSON “IT’S A SHAME”
Out July 14th On The ‘Lowtemporary’ Compilation Via Gramatik’s Lowtemp
“‘It’s A Shame’ is a moody number with a chill vibe, reminiscent of Portishead or Massive Attack.”
-LIVE FOR LIVE MUSIC
With folks at Lowtemp putting finishing touches to the third installment of label’s compilation series, ‘Lowtemporary,’ we today have a 2nd single teasing its release. After Anomalie’s uptempo interpretation of Teo Collori’s gypsy swing track, “Tony Mitraglia,” this next release, a collaboration between Benjamin Shock and Martina Martensson on “It’s A Shame,” sets a whole new sonic direction for the compilation.
Slovenian producer Benjamin Shock has so far released two singles with Lowtemp, and also contributed a chilled-out jam on the label’s previous compilation. Shock has been intimately involved with music industry since the late 90’s and he is primarily known as DJ/producer working in the field of house music with an enviable catalog of releases on some of Europe’s most respected underground labels. However, this new single, “It’s A Shame,” sees him exploring different territories.
Collaborating with musicians from various scenes, everyone involved provided inspiration to each other’s creative process, resulting in a mesmerizing track. One of them was the versatile guitarist Teo Collori, but the main input came from the Swedish singer Marina Martensson, and her breezy tonality influenced by jazz/soul music. ““The second I heard the beat and guitar playing, I started singing the words that would later become the verse more or less unchanged,” exlpains Martensson, “the process was immediate.” The song takes inspiration from a genre that reached its peak in Bristol, UK sometime in the late 90’s – it is contemplative, texturally rich, superbly written, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if people mistook it either for a Portishead or Massive Attackrecord. Which in a lot of ways is as high a compliment as you can get.
Still to come, stay tuned for the remainder of the stacked 18-track compilation featuring new releases from Beat Faigue, Kotek, Adam Deitch, Leudo, and many more. Out July 14th via Lowtemp.
