Gramatik releases ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ remix EP
Gramatik and his label Lowtemp tap the talent of Beat Fatigue, Psymbionic, and Cobrayama for remixes of Gramatik’s collaborative hip-hop track, “Satoshi Nakamoto,” adding another group to the ever-growing pool of momentous Epigram remixes. The original, which is named after the mysterious person or group that invented the revolutionary BitCoin technology, is a return to Gramatik’s hip hop roots, and as such, was perfectly suited for rappers Probcause and Adrian Lau to lay down some thick verses upon.
The EP features three new versions of “Satoshi Nakamoto,” which has already reached legendary status after its original release in early 2016 as part of Gramatik’s latest LP, Epigram. The first of the re-inventors to throw his hats into Gramatik’s cryptocurrency ring is the Amsterdam-based Beat Fatigue, who adds additional live instrumentation and a very healthy dose of funk.
Hot on the heels of Beat Fatigue is Gravitas Records label manager and multi-tempo bass music producer Psymbionic, who creatively slices the original up and gives it his signature synthesized sonic treatment. Finally, ex-Exmag member Mike Lannato, now known as Cobrayama, finishes off the EP with a more laid-back, retro re-imagination that utilizes the nostalgic themes of the original as the main focal point.
