"He earned nominations for "Best Chill Out Artist" and "Best Chill Out Track" at the 2010 awards, and 3 best track awards at the 2012 Beatport Music Awards. More recently, after posting a clever remix of Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven", he shot to number 1 on HypeMachine in a matter of hours, and has been since appearing in the site's 'popular' top 10 chart with every new release. Within the US, it's been a huge year of growth for Gramatik, performing at festivals across the US and alongside labelmate Pretty Lights, including epic sold out shows at Red Rocks."

Gramatik has always been an early adopter. It began at the age of 3, when his mother would catch him glued to the radio in his older sister's room, checking out the cassette tapes with American funk, jazz, soul and blues. He started making his first beats on an early PC by the time he was 13, and soon the kid from Portoroz, Slovenia figured out how to harvest the power of free file sharing to build a following throughout the US & Europe. Tracks spread, hype grew, tours followed, and before long his digital persona forged the initial inroads into the US market, landing him both a label and an agency.
Gramatik landed on US soil as a fully formed artist who knows how to do things his way. He signed to a label, Pretty Lights Music, that gives all of its music away for free, which went hand in hand with his own philosophy about ''freeing music by making music free''. Soon after, he scooped up his hometown crew and moved to Brooklyn, NY. Alongside Gramatik, the multimedia collective known as Dream Big features guitarist and producer F.A.Q, video director and filmmaker Anze Koron and graphic and web designer Martin Kenjic, with whom he has been friends since they were kids, sitting in a small town on the Adriatic coast, dreaming of breaking out into the wide world beyond. Now's the time.
