Right before 2016 ended, Gramatik treated his fans to the final remix pack of tracks from his album Epigram, which came out earlier that year and was celebrated as his most accomplished work to date. His single “Satoshi Nakamoto” served as one of the most nostalgic tracks on the record as it represented a return to Gramatik’s hip-hop roots.
A couple of sessions in the studio spliced with some signature production tricks, and the bits and pieces came together beautifully for MCs Adrian Lau and ProbCause to lay down some bars and complete the track. In honor of the timeless tune, Gramatik has invited a select group of tastemakers to throw their spin on the track for an official “Satoshi Nakamoto” remix EP.
Although the EP consisted of a variety of hard-hitting remixes to the track, one remix didn’t make the cut, but Lowtemp is now set to correct that by releasing it as a single, representing the final entry to the Epigram saga. Nick Middleton and Duncan Smith, A.K.A.The Funk Hunters, accomplished a booming remix of “Satoshi Nakamoto” showcasing the Canadian duo’s signature funky bass from the West Coast. Borrowing generously from the vast legacy of classic funk and hip hop, they aim to inject some much needed soul back into electronic dance music.
Having honed their craft in over 450 performances in 16 countries, the DJ duo’s show is a brilliant technical display of creative collaboration between four turntables. However, words can’t do justice to the two friends whose passion is dance floor mastery – breathless audiences at global festivals including Wakarusa, Burning Man, Rhythm & Vines, Shambhala, Ottawa Bluesfest, and Envision are the ultimate testament.
