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.
