[PREMIERE] Gramatik Teams Up With Balkan Bump And Talib Kweli On Mediterranean-Influenced Hip-Hop Single “Aymo”

Gramatik Balkin Bump

Today we have the pleasure of premiering a brand new single from TSIS favorite Gramatik. Following up on the success of his summer collabs with Eric Krasno and Galactic Marvl, Gramatik keeps the new music coming. Now he's linked up with trumpet player/producer Will Magid’s music project Balkan Bump and hip-hop legend Talib Kweli to share yet another incredible release titled “Aymo”.

Gramatik takes things in an interesting new direction for this latest offering. Starting off with a unique acoustic melody (which sounds like it was played on an Oud), some non-traditional percussion and skittering verses from none other than rapping heavyweight Talib Kweli progress the track into a Mediterranean-influenced drop filled with bouncy bass, abrasive growls and the traditional brass sounds of the Balkans. Check out “Aymo” feat. Talib Kweli below and keep an eye out for more new music from Gramatik dropping soon. Enjoy!

Gramatik Links Up With Past Collaborator Eric Krasno On Soulful New Single “Recovery”

Gramatik Jumping

Gramatik has been having a great year so far. From linking back up with GRiZ on another long-awaited Grizmatik single, to joining Ramzoid on a unique remix of  Flume’s “Wall Fuck” he’s only just beginning to roll out what he has in store for 2017. Today, he’s teamed up with frequent collaborator Eric Krasno on  “Recovery”, his first independent track since 2016.

Throughout his discography, Gramatik has consistently delivered a distinctive electro-funk/glitch-hop vibe, regardless of the tune, and his latest offering is no different. “Recovery” opens with a blissful, vintage sounding intro before quickly progressing into a funky guitar riff and soulful verse from Eric Krasno. Gramatik’s seamless electronic production and Eric Krasno passionate vocals mix perfectly throughout the incredibly smooth track. He also tweeted hinting at a release titled "Recoil" on June 17... there aren't any details on what the release is but definitely keep an eye out (see tweet below). Enjoy!
