Brooklyn, New York based electronic producer / DJ Gramatik has kept us anxiously waiting for his biggest project to date, The Age Of Reason, which Thissongissick.com has the exclusive first listen of the album in its entirety! Denis brought a talented cast of singers and muscians for The Age of Reason; working with the likes of Cherub, ILLUMNTR, Orlando Napier, and his Lowtemp label-mates Gibbz and Exmag. Before layering his collaborators tracks with the perfect amount of bass and funk, Gramatik samples their various instruments to give each tune a unique live band anesthetic. My personal favorite is "Torture", a song which features the talented Eric Krasno on guitar and vocals. New addition to the project Eric Mendelson of Exmag plays guitar all throughout the album providing an undeniable soul to Gramatik. If you have caught Gramatik at a festival or venue over the past year, chances are you've heard some of these tracks. We are less then a month into the year and I will already claim this as being one of the best album releases of 2014. You can stream it in full below, and will be available for FREE download exclusively via torrenting the album at bittorrent.com Saturday!

Zeds Dead continue their strong and steady journey as musical artists and set 2013 off properly with the release of their “Hot Sauce EP”. It is easily their most daring to project to date and Diplo’s incredibly versatile Mad Decent record label couldn’t be a more fitting home to release this genre-venturing project from the Canadian duo.
Starting off the ride is “Demons”, acting as the perfect transition from the past Zeds Dead sound they are known for to the new foreign styles contained on the EP. It is an incredibly slow paced brutal banger filled with piercing spine rattling drops and retro horror samples. Next up “Mr. Sub” takes us down a refreshing techy jungle ride that is a complete 180’ in overall mood. This song, which is named after the group’s home country’s sandwich chain, provides a great stepping-stone towards the rest of the EP. “Playa” is floor shaking, siren packed, rage filled inducing rave anthem that sounds unlike anything I have ever heard. Next up is the cleverly named “Rave”, featuring a revamped breakbeats track giving a tribute to the music that filled the UK rave scene. It let’s you get lost in the engulfing breaks while still carrying out the Zeds Dead flavor you crave. The closing track “Trouble” has the duo go back to the gritty slow paced glitch-hop sound they perfected on their past EP featuring Omar LinX, Victor. The song revolves around a simple infectious piano line and drumbeat that is a slow yet powerful way to end the bold release.
All in all, the EP takes some huge risks, defying most of what is getting released right now. These are the bold signs of true artists who are leading the way, and not following the trends. You can listen to the EP below, and purchase it through through Beatport and iTunes. Enjoy.
We already heard Zeds Dead’s take on The Prodigy classic dance anthem “Breathe” and now get The Glitch Mob’s take. They use a fair amount more of the originals vocals giving the track a completely different feel. They manage to convey their signature glitched out bass heavy style while highlighting the iconic electronic group. This project along with the other remixes is now available for purchase through iTunes. Enjoy!
