Listen to ATLiens’ ominous ‘Ghost Planet’ EP
A seismic Bassnectar collaboration is all the ATLiens needed to get their career off with a rolling start. Now the Atlanta-based experimental bass duo has all the momentum of a freshly established act with a whirlwind of new releases to amass their growing sonic catalog. After releasing their acclaimed Invasion EP last year, ATLiens have entwined themselves with Bassrush Records on a definitive 7-track EP, Ghost Planet. The pair recently teased the project with the singles “Closer” with EDDIE, “Shelter,” and “Fading Out.”
Chocked full of four solo original tracks, a melodic Sarah Skinner vocal feature, and two budding collaborations, the EP rounds out like a post-apocalyptic journey into outer space after earth has become a desolate wasteland. With track additions like the ragga-jungle influenced “Tantra,” a low tempo breakbeat banger in “Fuck That,” and an eery and ominous Hairitage collaboration, Ghost Planet explores the aggressive experimental terrain that has become ATLiens’ dark sonic tarmac. It’s a tumultuous listening experience, although controlled, stylistically cohesive, and extremely premeditated. After the journey is over, unassuming listeners will be jolted with intrigue as they are dropped off on some strange planet far, far away,
ATLiens also have a number of notable festival stops in store for the remainder of 2019, with stops at Moonrise, Dancefestopia, Lost Lands, and Freaky Deaky Texas. Be sure to catch this burgeoning bass duo as they play out their new Ghost Planet material across the late summer and fall festival circuit.
