Gramatik continues to prove himself as a relentless musical force, consistently putting out new releases and making people lose their marbles at his sold-out shows all over the world. Following his seminal 2016 album Epigram and subsequent remix EP’s he kept the streak going all year, while also gracing the stage at some of the biggest summer festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Metropop, Camp Bisco, Lollapalooza, Moonrise, Red Rocks and more.

In January of 2017 there was a long-awaited reunion with another funk mastermind, GRiZ, on “As We Proceed”. The new GRiZMATiK track received excellent reviews from outlets like Dancing Astronaut, Run The Trap, EDM.com and plenty more, while also exceeding 1.2M plays on SoundCloud and reaching 2M on Spotify. Gramatik followed it up with a remix of Flume’s track “Wall Fuck” (1.22M plays on SC) which he produced with young Canadian artist, Ramzoid. The track was premiered on notorious Colorado-based blog Thissongissick, reached #1 on SoundCloud’s electronic chart and also performed well on Hype Machine. Then it was time to focus on the three singles leading up to his latest EP, “Re:Coil Part I”; on “Recovery” Gramatik teamed up with old buddy Eric Krasno and the bright, melodic jam caught the attention of Billboard who snagged it for an exclusive premiere. The next single, “Voyager Twins” was a collaboration with mysterious, Armada-affiliated act, fittingly called Galactic Marvl and on the last single from new EP he joined forces with new Lowtemp signee, Balkan Bump. The single’s title “Aymo” translates to “let’s go” in the majority of ex-Yugoslavian countries, including Slovenia, where Gramatik is from originally.

Appropriately, the single dropped just before Gramatik headed out on a huge fall tour across the EU, visiting 26 cities along the way. During the tour, on October 20th, he treated his fans to the release of “Re:Coil Pt. I’' EP and just like the year before when he was dropping “Epigram”, the release party for the heavily anticipated new release took place at the legendary Paris venue, Zenith.

Another important milestone was awaiting on November 9th during his show in Zurich. As one of the pioneering artists embracing crypto-culture and the new blockchain-based technologies that work towards decentralization, he launched his own token, GRMTK, in collaboration with SingularDTV. This revolutionary new approach promises a convergence of network and data that will allow creators to bypass gatekeepers and intermediaries and seize control of their intellectual property. The full goal was reached within 24 hours and all together 2,3 million dollars in ETH were raised with hardly breaking a sweat, signaling that people are open to the new distribution models. Gramatik will be testing them in early 2018 when his follow-up “Re:Coil Part II” EP will be completed and ready to drop. The revolution will be tokenized!

Bertrand Lacroix first became interested in music and vinyl records at a very young age thanks to his father who is a big collector of phonographs and owns a lot of 78 RPM records of American Jazz, Beebop, and Swing. Fully immersed in this atmosphere of mechanical music, he rebelled during his teens and started becoming interested in electronic music.

He received his first mixing deck in 1990 for his 12th birthday. Though it was a very basic device, it enabled him to mix the several samples he created thanks to his tape recorders and his vinyl deck. New Beat music, Acid Music and hip hop were his favourite musical genres back then...

Today, after many years of musical activism, deejaying, productions and the opening and running of a record shop, he comes back to us and presents his new solo producer project: MÔME, which is mainly a blend of all his early influences and former experiences. The basic foundation of Môme’s sound is House with slight accents of Deep, Acid and Techno music.
