Yesterday we lost one of the most influential artists in music history, Aretha Franklin. For over half a century the Queen of Soul’s powerful voice touched the hearts of countless peoples across the world and inspired generation upon generation of young artists. Today, as we reflect upon the impact that Aretha has had on the world of music, that to pay respect to the late singer and pianist, Gramatik has shared a tribute titled “Let Me Know The Way”. Gramatik is also coming to Red Rocks Sep. 1 so be sure to catch him at his show there and enter our contest here to win tickets.
"Over the last 15+ years, I’ve sampled her countless times and learned the craft through sampling her amazing discography. 2 of the most prominent beats of mine with samples of her are “In This Whole World” and “I’m Free”, and even to this day, coincidentally, I made 3 beats last month for SB5 with samples from her songs, this is one of them. She was a force of nature, a voice of a generation and an inspiration to us all. We will miss you dearly, my Queen. ♥️” – Gramatik
Sampling “The Long And Winding Road”, Gramatik crafts a soulful, rhythmic boom-bap type beat around Aretha’s distinctive vocals, perfectly capturing the emotional, larger-than-life feeling that could only be achieved by the late Queen. Check out “Let Me Know The Way” below and enjoy.
