Gramatik has made 2017 one of his most successful years yet, and he doesn’t intend on hitting the brakes anytime soon. He’s released a slew of projects, collaborations, an album called Epigram, and his Native Son remix EP since last year. On top of all that, he’s managed an insane touring schedule, which can’t come easy. The Lowtemp Records founder has embarked on a handful of journeys, and now he’s weeks away from a Fall tour called Re:Coil to promote his upcoming EP with the same name.
Gramatik’s Re:Coil tour will take him through Europe to cities in France, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Luxembourg, Spain, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium, Romania, and Serbia.
He has steadily delivered music for his fans, including collaborations with old friends and new talents within the industry. He has released two original tracks, which hinted at an upcoming EP after releasing his GRiZMATiK track, “As We Proceed,” and a Ramzoid co-signed remix of Flume‘s “Wall Fuck.” Re:Coil Pt. I is slated for a release on October 13th, while Pt. II will follow in 2018.
Just ahead of the Re:Coil tour, Gramatik has paired up with Balkan Bump and Talib Kweli to release “Aymo” – which takes us back to Gramatik’s roots. Balkan Bump and Talib Kweli only further enhance the nostalgia of this epic time traveling with heavy cultural inspiration and elements.
Balkan Bump is a brand new re-branded project from Will Magid, an ethnomusicologist, trumpet player, and producer based in Oakland, California. Magid’s musical talents have the ability to take us on an international journey through cultures. He has garnered inspiration over the years from various cultures and can setup a composition to take you to a Cuban beach, a West African wedding party, or a Serbian night club within a matter of minutes. A truly remarkable versatile skill to have in such a genre-focused scene.
Will Magid has performed with key industry talents like Pretty Lights, Beats Antique, and Bonobo, which has deepened his understanding of the cultures and electronic genre. Magid is now focusing his time and talents on his own music. He will be releasing a world-influenced EP that will debut his new Balkan Bump project. This EP will feature blissful jams and luscious layers of horns, bouncing percussion, classical strings, and ambient noises.
