It’s been several months since the release of EpigramGramatik‘s 13th full-length album (download for free here). This release won’t be forgotten anytime soon though as this summer Gramatik, and his label Lowtemp, are releasing a series of Epigram remixes. A number of up-and-coming Lowtemp producers have been given the opportunity to put their own signature sounds on the noteworthy release.

The series kicked off with a “Native Son Prequel” remix from Jenaux. Lowtemp finally released the next installment with a “War of the Currents” remix EP featuring flips by Gill Chang, Lookas, and Awoltalk.

Despite the track being among other heavy cuts on Epigram, “War Of The Currents” is a stand-out. As a producer, Gramatik is constantly evolving, never settling on one dominant sound for too long. With this track he created something that unmistakably references his past via dubstep infused stabs and rhythmic structure, prominent during his No Shortcutz era.

Fascinated by the intricate sound design in trap-influenced bass music, Gramatik put his own spin on the genre, eventually creating a hybrid that’s been rocking the stages ever since the release of Epigram and will undoubtedly continue to do so on his summer tour. It is a merciless banger, but also a track that’s ultimately a condensed message of what Gramatik has been all about throughout his career: Think more and think better.

And so a trio of excellent young producers took on the job of creating their own version of Gramatik’s tale of the “AC/DC wars” in musical form. First to get his hands on the track was North Michigan-by-way-of-Taiwan artist, Gill Chang. An expert at crafting chilled out beats that go a step further, he opts for a stripped down and dynamic take on the original, making clever unexpected turns along the way. Next up to give the “War of the Currents” new life was Lookas, a remixer in high-demand as evidenced by his high profile work for some of the biggest names in the game, including The Chainsmokers. Rounding up the remixes EP is Miami native, Awoltalk, who twisted and turned Gramatik’s original into a see-sawing trap number that’s sure to rock crowds everywhere. 3 amazing, emerging artists taking turns to spin their very own spin, making each track their own. Doesn’t get better than that.
