Gramatik, Slovenia’s sensational hip hop and electronica artist is bringing his signature sounds to State Theater Portland!
Gramatik (birth name Denis Jašarević) was born in Portorož (Slovenia) in 1984 and is a hip hop and electronic music producer. He began his musical journey at the age of 3 by listening to American funk, jazz, soul and blues from his older sister’s music collection. As he got older, he started to take an interest in hip hop, listening to DJ Premier, Guru, RZA, and Dr. Dre. When he was 13, he started producing music on his PC and uploading his work on Beatport; an electronic music-oriented online music store. It wasn’t long before he started to amass a large following on Beatport and it eventually led to him getting an agent, a record deal, and moving to New York City. He released his debut studio album (Expedition 44) in 2008 and his second album (Street Bangerz Vol. 1) stayed on Beatport's Top 100 Chill Out chart for 6 months. He said in an interview, “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!’” He’s had a stellar career with 7 more studio albums and he’s won 3 Beatport Music Awards.
