“Joko Roob aka Da Gramn from Perpignan, France is the latest addition to our growing roster of artists. He was brought to our attention a few weeks back by one of his mates, who told us the shy 21 yr-old has always been a big fan of our movement. We are extremely humbled to know that, and upon hearing this man’s output, it didn’t take much convincing on our end to know that he simply had to be part of our universe.
Raised on a diet of Slum Village, J Dilla, Nujabes, Afta-1, Comfort Fit, Swede:Art, Sepalcure, MNDSGN and Portformat, you pretty much have an idea where Da Gramn is coming from sonically. Indeed, anyone who can pull off a Julien Clerc remix and make it sound like the freshest Juke number is good in our books.
For this particular remix, we have chosen to feature his heavy remix of the classic Jill Scott’s Golden’. This particular track has been on rotation amongst the DTW DJs recently, leaving a rather significant mark on the dance floor.” – Darker Than Wax
