One of my biggest musical influences in the electronic realm has always been and will always be Gramatik. It was Denis Jašarević’s style of electro and funk synergy that brought me out of the punk rock era and onto the universal platform that is known as electronic dance music. This is a place where any style of music is welcome and can flourish with the help of creativity in technology. Many music purists will disagree with this… but these are the same people who churn their own butter and insist that playing on vinyl is the only way. The fact of the matter is that genres such as electro funk, trap, moomba & even tropical house all exist outside of the EDM world, just in a more reserved form. The electronic age of music has given these production styles and percussion patterns a breath of fresh air. This allows classics to remain classic but stay relevant.
For many people Gramatik has been the missing link between old music tastes and the new evolution of genre fusion that we see today. The same electro-funk, hip-hop groove that first drew me to Gramatik is still very much present in the new album, Epigram. I have noticed a bit more development in the vocal style that the tracks are arranged around. Many of the tracks are vocal hook based and carry a bit more presence over the chorus section. This opens the track up and allows it to be more recognizable. Don’t get me wrong, Gramatik’s music will always be a genre defining unique blend of dope-ness, that can be identified a mile away. However, in the past, many of the songs would blend together in my mind, becoming the ambient soundtrack to anything from cleaning the house to walking the dog. Whereas now, more of the album has a “single release” quality about it. This combo instantly makes the lyrics more memorable and you will find yourself humming until you go crazy or people at least think you are.
Epigram contains ten funky filled tracks and, as with all his previous albums, is available for FREE download HERE.
