2016 was an exceptional year for NYC by-way-of Slovenia producer / DJ Gramatik. After teasing his upcoming album throughout 2015 at some of the biggest venues and festivals in the world, the Epigram LP finally dropped in March 2016 to wide acclaim from peers and critics alike. This served as a starting point for Gramatik’s enormous worldwide tour in support of the release, with highlights including an album release party at Zenith in Paris, Europe's largest music festival Roskilde, and a New Year’s extravaganza with Bassnectar in Alabama.
Still, Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater remains one of Gramatik’s favorite places on Earth. Following 2015’s epic Blizzmatik show and last year’s reprise, he is making his annual return to the legendary amphitheater this spring with an all new support line-up and completely re-worked stage design. A trio of incredible artists have been invited to share the stage and add their own flavor to the unforgettable event. Making his Red Rocks debut, Mr. Carmack is a producer / DJ who is increasingly becoming one of the strongest voices of the undefined musical area between hip hop and electronic music. Also stepping up to the plate will be a young Canadian artist from Vancouver, Ekali, who already has a writing credit on the latest Drake record. Finally, Flamingosis, a music producer, beatboxer and DJ hailing from New Jersey will be hoping on the decks for a turn to show off his critically renowned sound.
Along with the new line-up of talent, Gramatik will be using the 2017 Red Rocks show to bring back the now re-worked Nikola Tesla-inspired stage design fans may remember from a few years back. Aside from the coil's aesthetic appeal, the revamped design also functions more as a symbolic departure from the year 2016. For many, the year 2016 will be largely remembered for the countless tragedies and bizarre events that occurred, but more importantly, it was a year that intensified a feeling of pessimism for what the future holds. While we recoil from the shocking year that was 2016, it is also a time to remember we can always harness the good which exists inside every one of us, and continue to fight for a better world for all humanity.
It’s the year of the Re:Coil.
