Hatchback

Hatchback is the nom du disque of Samuel Milton Grawe, a lifelong music lover and creator of expansive, evocative, easygoing electronic epics. Born in 1976, he spent his childhood between Maclean, VA, and New Delhi, India, and beyond; traveling the world with his World Bank-employed father and always listening to his Walkman as he went, thereby instilling an enduring link between music and travel. His parents introduced him early on to ABBA, the Eurythmics, and Culture Club; later he discovered the '70s prog rock of Yes, Pink Floyd, ELP, and the like, which eventually led to a late-teenaged Krautrock obsession, beginning with Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, moving on to Neu!, and so on. The common denominator in all of this musical terrain is synthesizers, so it's no surprise that when the young Grawe began experimenting with making his own music it was with a Casio keyboard-c*m-calculator that he'd seen a second-grade classmate use. He moved on to working with analog synths and MIDI sequencers, dabbling in IDM and psychedelic electronica throughout the '90s.

After moving to San Francisco in 1998, Grawe hooked up with guitarist Dan Judd, of the band Call & Response, who records under the moniker Sorcerer. The two began jamming on Saturday mornings, eventually performing live -- briefly as a trio dubbed "Brown Rainbow" -- and later solidifying their studio-based collaboration, around 2006, under the name Windsurf. As they continued their joint and solo production work, they became increasingly associated with the burgeoning international current of electronica shorthanded as Cosmic Disco or Nu-Balearic, helping to forge an unlikely connection between Scandinavia and the Bay Area that also included fellow travelers like Arp, Rubies and Dominique Leone. After posting their music on the website Dream Chimney, both Hatchback and Sorcerer were approached about releasing 12"s on two European labels (THISISNOTANEXIT and Tirk, respectively) which coincidentally both solicited remixes from Norwegian cosmic disco figurehead Prins Thomas; after Thomas realized the connection, he invited the pair to release an EP (as Windsurf) and eventually a full album on his Internasjonal label.

The duo also remixed LCD Soundsystem and Low Motion Disco in 2007; meanwhile Grawe's well-received 12"s "White Diamond" and "Carefree Highway" caught the attention of England's Lo Recordings, paving the roadway for his long-in-the-works debut album as Hatchback, 2008's Colors of the Sun. The follow-up also seemingly took an eternity to arrive. When it did in January of 2011, Zeus and Apollo built on Grawe's fascination with New Age music with its creator going so far as to announce "Welcome to the new age of new age." ~ K. Ross Hoffman
