New York-based DJ Gramatik has been busy this year. In addition to a summer full of festival appearances ranging from EDC Las Vegas to Lollapalooza, he’s also released a handful of new singles (“Recovery” feat. Eric Krasno, the GRiZ collaboration “As We Proceed”, and a remix of Flume’s “Wall Fuck” with Ramzoid). His latest effort is “Voyager Twins”, a collaboration with Galactic Marvl, and the two have now unveiled the accompanying music video.
Named for the Voyager I and Voyager II space probes, “Voyager Twins” starts off with a slower intro, but when the beat drops, things go supersonic in this glitch-meets-dub track. The “Voyager Twins” video features a simple animation style with a plot that’s out of this world. Dutch motion and design studio Supermassive and illustrator Fernando Leon bring to life the story of the 1977 launch of the Voyager II, and headlines fly across the screen while the spacecraft zooms across the sky. But where exactly is it headed, and who will be there when it lands? Watch the video above to see for yourself.
Gramatik (Denis Jasarevic) moved from Portorož, Slovenia to New York City in 2008 after signing with an agent in the US. He has several albums and EPs under his belt, including 2016’s Epigram, released through his record label Lowtemp. Gramatik will be touring throughout Europe this fall for the Re:Coil Tour; see the dates below and purchase tickets via his website.
As for Galactic Marvl? Like Marshmello, this DJ’s identity is unknown. All that’s known about Galactic Marvl is his connection to the record label Armada, the label founded in 2003 by Armin van Buuren, Maykel Piron, and David Lewis and currently home to the likes of Borgore and Sultan + Shepard.
