Gramatik - The Age of Reason
The Age of Reason is a benchmark release in the career of Gramatik - the first release on his own label, Lowtemp and a true sonic evolution. It is said that a master learns the rules in order to know how to bend them. With The Age of Reason, Gramatik, shows a musical growth which defies genre and breaks the EDM status quo to achieve an extension of the sound we have come to know as Gramatik.
Currently residing in NYC, the Slovenian producer has been lighting up stages and creating a distinct relationship with fans worldwide since his debut performance in 2009. In an era when most musicians and the industry at large were scrambling to maintain a grasp of their old streams of revenue, Gramatik was jumping head first into what he believed would be the future - file sharing. "Freeing music by making music free" has become one of the calling cards of Gramatik's career. In 2010, after releasing five records at a furious pace, Gramatik began posting links to torrents containing his full discography. Fans responded by sharing files and coming to shows by the tens of thousand.
Gramatik has never been afraid to speak openly and honestly to his audience. With his last record #digitalfreedom, he encouraged a new era of copyright law and discourse. In his frequent and usually well received post in social media, he has taken the artist to fan relationship to a very personal level. He frequently speaks about his love of Nikola Tesla and more importantly his reasons for supporting Tesla's legacy and mindful progressive living as a whole. Gramatik's elaborate stage design even mimics multiple Tesla Coils.
Nothing has changed with the release of The Age of Reason. Gramatik elaborates on the epic LP title, which was "inspired by a stand-up segment by comedian George Carlin. He made a joke on the fact that he was Catholic until he reached the age of reason. I also firmly believe that there comes a time in a human life when you reach the so-called 'age of reason' and realize that there are so many irrational beliefs, shameless contradictions and illogical restrictions inflicted upon society for various malicious reasons, things that were deliberately designed to keep us in line and prevent us from reaching our full potential as a species. Some people reach it sooner, others later, but a majority unfortunately never do. [Through my music] I'd like to guide more people to reach the age of reason sooner. Maybe. Or, hopefully at least unite the ones that feel the same way."
