Commodore Ballroom
Thursday, Feb 8th 2018.

On one of Vancouver’s first rainless nights in weeks, lines formed outside the Commodore Ballroom in preparation for Gramatik’s first West coast stop on his RE:COIL tour. Released in 2017, the Slovenian producer’s newest project centers around ideas of technology and science.

While the crowd flowed in, the ballroom was flooded with Balkan Bump’s unique middle-eastern sound, as featured on the collaborative single with Gramatik and Talib Kweli, “Aymo”. The Oakland musician brought the energy of the room up with deep bass and melodic trumpet. Haywyre was up next and kept the audience moving with jazzy keyboard and hard-hitting beats infused with samples from Outkast, Michael Jackson, and many more.

Gramatik, who is the world’s first ‘Crypto-Artist opened with “Future Crypto”, A core-rumbling track that sent the crowd into absolute euphoria. There’s always a point in a great show when the audience stops being just an audience and evolves into a group of people bonded by what they’re experiencing. In this case, it was immediate.

From the moment Gramatik and his electric guitarist stepped on stage strangers danced together, girls cheered on their friends’ shoulders, and there wasn’t a soul in the room, Commodore staff included, who wasn’t nodding along all night.
