Gratts

Belgian dj/music producer Gratts has been a prolific agent of the European electronic scene for over two decades. After living and working in Berlin for 8 years, he moved to South Brighton (South Australia) with his family exactly a year ago.

After releasing records under different projects and alter egos throughout the years, his first two Gratts outings saw the light of day in ‘21 & ’22: first up 'Brighter Future', followed by 'Music For The Moon Room Gecko'.

His new single 'Sun Circles' perfectly sums up the Belgian's musical universe: a dreamy, cosmic stunner with rolling synth waves and twinkling harmonies. Soulful but subtle, balearic but bumpin'.

Review: Belgian-in-Australia Gratts draws his "Balearic but bumpin'" trilogy to a triumphant close with 'Rhythm of Love', a sun-splashed, musically expansive deep house number featuring piano solos aplenty, jazzy bass guitar, loose-limbed 4/4 drums, simmering synth strings and an utterly gorgeous lead vocal from Cata Mansikka-aho. Gratts offers up his own 'Daydreamin' Instrumental' - an intricately detailed, subtly effects-laden affair that's every bit as alluring as the vocal version - before British deep house, Balearic and nu-disco veterans provide their own vocal and instrumental takes. Their versions are, if anything, even better than Gratts' superb originals, with the Lee brothers' successfully re-inventing the track as a kaleidoscopic Balearic nu-disco anthem in the making. In a word: essential!

Review: Earlier in the year, Gratts made his bow on Wolf Music Recordings via a fine three-track trip into woozy, semi-organic deep house territory piled high with jazzy instrumental flourishes. Here the Adelaide-based Belgian returns to his own label, Be Strong Be Free, with vocalist Ange Nawasadio in tow. 'Jour De Fete' is a similarly warm, fluid and groovy affair with notes of disco, piano house and - most surprisingly - swamp funk, with tons of classy live instrumentation and - on the 'version originale' - French language vocals. Conrad McDonnell of Idjut Boys fame provides the obligatory remixes in his distinctive dubbed out style, with the TB-303 bassline-propelled 'Quokka Dub' being followed by the even more wayward, heady and intoxicating 'Quokka Pup Dub', where delay-laden flashes of Harmonica and vocal catch the ear.

Review: Fresh from blurring the boundaries between Balearica, soul and deep house in the company of Nathan Haines and Mr Beale ('Sun Circles' on Be Strong Be Free), Gratts joins forces with more talented musicians and vocalists on his first Wolf Music Recordings outing. Brandon Markell Holmes and Leito lend a hand on 'Pretty Lights', a wonderfully warming, musically expansive picturesque chunk of Balearic deep house soul that comes in both full-length and edited variations. 'Polaroids', featuring Tee Amara, is a more upbeat and even more soulful affair, with Gratts smothering a shuffling 128 BPM beat in dreamy pads, sci-fi synths, twinkling pianos and a gorgeous lead vocal. Glen Davis remixes, re-framing the track as a pitched-up, late '80s Chicago deep house gem with added deep space chords.

Review: Belgian born, Australia-based producer Gratts returns with a sun kissed serving of Balearic tinged bliss here titled "Sun Circles" which inaugurates Adelaide-based label Be Strong Be Free. A song he penned for his two young sons, it is a dreamy vocal-led deep house tune featuring all the right elements, recorded over the last 18 months in various studios. Gratts enlisted musicians such as New Zealand-born legend Nathan Haines, London's Mr Beale, as well as Belgians Jasper Hautekiet, Levi Wynants and Frederik Kuhn. Berlin-based Alex Kassian provides an entrancing version on the flip, that's perfect for watching the sunset while poolside.
