Gramatik’s Beatz & Pieces Vol. 1 OUT NOW on Pretty Lights Music(Free Download)
Gramatik’s banging, soulful, and just plain HOT new beat collection, Beatz & Pieces Vol. 1, is out NOW on Pretty Lights Music. Gramatik is an extremely versatile producer, and even though he dabbles in genres from dubstep to electro, this record is PURE HIP-HOP…on steroids. His previous albums saw sales of over 80,000 tracks online, but right now, Beatz & Pieces Vol. 1 is available on Pretty Lights Music at NO COST.

Beatz & Pieces Vol. 1 is a collection of beats that are hip-hop at the core, but go far beyond that in the realm of technique, style, and creativity. The tracks are raw, sample based beats, with a technical sophistication and an evolved stylistic twist that question the idea of what a hip-hop beat is and should be. Gramatik’s knack for finding and chopping samples brings the soul to the table, and then he injects them with a massive dose of flavor that lands the tracks anywhere between ultra-hype banger and contemplative head-nodder. Either way, Beatz & Pieces Vol. 1 pushes the envelope of hip-hop production, and is an epic start to what is proving to be a perfect match between Gramatik and PLM.
Pretty Lights Music is offering Gramatik’s music as a free download because the number one priority is to get the music into people’s stereos, and get the people out to Gramatik’s shows. Lossless versions of all the beats in the collection can still be purchased exclusively at Beatport, but anyone can download Beatz & Pieces Vol. 1 in its entirety for free at www.prettylightsmusic.com.
