Biography


Denis Jašarević, known by his stage name Gramatik, is a Slovenian electronic music producer.

After Jašarević released his debut studio album Expedition 44 in July 2008, as well as his second studio album Street Bangerz Vol. 1 in December 2008. SB1 charted on Beatport’s Top 100 Chill Out chart for six months. In an interview with Britt Chester, Jašarević said, “I didn’t even expect the album to sell one track on Beatport, nothing else was sold on beatport except techno and house. When I dropped my album and it started selling, I was really surprised, since I’d never seen a hip-hop album sell on Beatport. So when it sold, I was like ‘Wow!’ These were hip-hop beats, but it was labeled ‘Chill Out’ on Beatport. People saw it and thought it was awesome good chill out music, which is fine for me. I didn’t expect it at all, and I didn’t expect someone to reach out to me as a booking agent.”

A year after releasing his first album, Jašarević signed to the Pretty Lights Music label as its first new artist, which at the time consisted of only the electronic music producer Pretty Lights (Derek Vincent Smith). The label utilizes a fee-free music model, and Jašarević has stated his belief is that it is “morally right for music to be primarily free”, and has been vocal about his history with digital piracy and how it has benefited his career in multiple ways. Jašarević cited his third extended play (EP) #digitalfreedom as having a theme involving “the fight against severe internet censorship bills” such as ACTA, SOPA and PIPA.

In 2013, Jašarević announced his departure from the Pretty Lights Music label in order to form his own vanity record label named Lowtemp Recordings. The label’s name is an abbreviation of “low temperature”, which Jašarević has explained is meant to indicate that music from his label would be “cool”, stating, “So from now on, if you think a song of mine is cool, you gotta say that shit’s [from] Lowtemp.” Lowtemp now consists of artists Exmag (a side project of Gramatik), ILLUMNTR, Gibbz, BRANX, and Russ Liquid.

In 2014, Jašarević reissued his first seven albums—including the Street Bangerz series, renamed as SB—on the Lowtemp label with new or updated artwork.

With a simple audio tape, producer Gramatik travelled from his native Slovenia to the heart of Western culture: Brooklyn. He borrowed this magical tape from his older sister when he was a kid, and it enabled him to discover funk and soul classics, which would become his ticket for what was then still called the information highway. When he became a teenager and acquired a computer, Denis Jasarevic resolved to offer ultra-modern tones to these musical nuggets, with a jumpy bass and an accelerated rhythm. Published online, these vintage productions, propelled to the 21st century, naturally found their way to a generation of listeners immediately won over by this familiar, yet unknown territory.

After discovering a real passion for music at the age of three, when he would listen to his big sister’s cassettes of funk, jazz and soul, Denis Jasarevic, alias Gramatik, evolved into a talented DJ and producer. Born in Slovenia and now living in New-York, he has invested American hip-hop culture notably thanks to artists such as Guru and Dr.Dre. With his declared taste for mixing styles, he created his first albums by adding a good dose of deep base, catchy beats to his classic influences from jazz and funk. He then switched to a style that is closer to minimalist techno and collaborated with the artist Griz in order to bring in some dubstep. Oh Yeah!
