< Progressive> The new Atmos record out on Iboga, entitled 604 comes in the form of a double album featuring releases from the past 2 years and a notable remix disc. When it comes to laying down a festival dance groove, Atmos can only be classed in the upper echelons alongside Anders Trentemoller and the like. As one of the primary purveyors of the Scandinavian sound, Atmos has paved the way for countless other artists to follow with a catalogue that spans nearly 15 years of definitive releases. As the alias suggests, Atmos has always sought to embody the elemental forces and this original concept of writing music specifically to be played outdoors has resounded strongly throughout his music – since the first few releases like The Only Process, the absolute classic Klein Aber Doctor and made even more evident on the debut album Headcleaner back in 2000. Whether the bassline is broken or rolling thunder, the emphasis is on the Psychedelic groove patterns that drive this rhythmically unified music. Apart from writing generally much longer tracks that seem to mysteriously grow faster, Atmos has always had an uncanny ability to design sounds larger than even your local cinema could throw at you. Finally after over a decade, Atmos returns to grace Cape Town once more this summer and is sure to stun fans both old and new.
