Today I’ve got an unbelievable free album for you, from Gramatik, a Slovenian artist who stands for everything that the site believes in; not giving a shit about confining music to a single genre, and wanting to spread that good music to as many possible people, for free in hopes that they will pay money to see the artists play live in concert. And that’s this brand new 6 song EP #digitalfreedom stands for. It was released on Pretty Lights Music and sponsored by Thissongissick. For this release he has a more agressive bass heavy style spanning over a variety of genres including dubstep, glitch hop, nu disco, and even some more. Dynamic and versatile are some of the best words to describe Gramatik. The live guitar and samples used give it that funky upbeat sound blended with the heavy hitting bass edge creates a great vibe reminding me a little bit of Pretty Lights, but completely it’s own sound.. Here’s a great ending note from Gramatik himself.
“Also, I just wanna say one thing to those who know me only by my chilled out hip-hop beatz: don’t be scared when you hear this EP, my true fans know that I’m nothing if not versatile. Good music is larger than one genre so just open your mind, absorb the vibes and you’ll be versatile too!”

I’ve been waiting to bring you this one for awhile now. This weekend is the SnowBall Music Festival 2012 and today I’ve got the official mixtape brought to you by Thissongissick. So most of you probably know about the festival SnowBall featuring names like Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, and The Flaming Lips, which started in Vail, Colorado and expanded to SnowGlobe in Lake Tahoe, California, and SnowMont in Killington, Vermont. Last year we put together a sick mixtape which got tons of love.
Today we continue the tradition with 20 amazing songs from artists playing the festival like Bassnectar, Major Lazer, Gramatik, Dillon Francis, Mimosa, Nit Grit, Two Fresh, Griz, and the list goes on and on. We tried to create a mixtape that highlighted the heavy bass crushing acts, to the more soulful live acts, and everything in between. SnowBall is a great balanced festival, with enough electronic to tide you over, and I really feel we did a great job at highlighting that. Enjoy all of these unreleased tracks, exclusive downloads on songs that have been purchase only, and more. We really hope you take the time to listen to every track. Enjoy!
