Slovenian born, Brooklyn based producer, Denis Jasarevic, more commonly known by his stage name, Gramatik, is known for his sample based, instrumental Hip-Hop production. However, take a trip through his catalogue and there are elements of various Electronic sub genres such as House, Dubstep, and Glitch Hop. His funk and jazz influence also doesn’t go unnoticed as he combines all of these genres on his latest LP, The Age of Reason.
The album starts off in a somber tone with the introduction track Bravemen that drops heavy synth and bass lines towards the end, leading us into the funky sounds of the second track Torture featuring Hendrix style vocals from singer Eric Krasno. Proving he is far from a one trick pony, Gramatik supplies us with the third track Bluestep which delivers exactly what it promises; a blues sample met with the Dubstep drums and synths.
