Electronic/hip-hop star Gramatik comes to Urban Lounge
First Published May 04 2012 04:33 pm • Last Updated May 04 2012 04:33 pm

Hailing from Portoroz, Slovenia, the electronic/hip-hop artist Gramatik was making beats on a PC when he was 13 — and spreading his tracks through free file-sharing throughout the U.S. and Europe before signing to a record label that gives its stuff away for free.

Gramatik’s latest EP is called "#digitalfreedom," and is dedicated "to the fight against severe internet censorship bills we’ve been hearing about so much in the past months. Bastards have been trying to cripple the internet on a global scale with bills like ACTA/SOPA/PIPA and I’m sure there’s more of them coming, so this one goes out for spreading awareness! Reject them all, they will never stop the sharing, the Internet is our realm, DIGITAL FREEDOM!"
