Atropolis Blocks Off Evil With His Solo Debut

Atropolis (Adam from Cumba Mela) has finally released his solo project self titled 'Atropolis' and has a mesmerizing amount of thumping bass and sounds of Cumbia, Afro, House and anything else acquired during his time in collective Cumba Mela and their travels. It takes you on this fantastic journey thru visions of gatherings, culture, jungles and flowing energy while captivating your ears and rendering them powerless as the tracks play out. I always look forward to albums like this where it had a distinct sound and adds to music (Can't really place it in a genre) while at the same time it's culture presenting sounds bring a new feel. You will hear guiras, hard hitting bass, sexy vocals, and drums that will turn into your soundtrack to the night which you hope it never ends. 'Che Bo has that cumbia bass goodness I've started to love, 'Huepa' Je' also is one of my many favorites in this album. Having interviewed the awesome Cumba Mela group a while ago, I know where they're coming from and it's a fantastic experience they serve live. Atropolis has taken that formula and added his own particular sound while still engaging the audience in different cultures and sounds. While you hear the tracks playing and senses taken over, there is still this sense of calmness and clarity in it all. It will If your looking for an experience in sound and not just an album to hear, then you've found it here. Atropolis... this has to be one of my favorite releases of 2011, thanks to Dutty Artz for releasing it!

Buy: iTunes, Juno, Turntablelab, Boomkat

The Progression Of A Giant Morning Music

As each track takes me from one place to another like all worlds were connected somehow ala The Adjustment Bureau sans the stupid hat rule, traversing and conversing I found out this morning has been especially random in music taste and I wouldn't have it any other way. Check the rest of the music after the jump, and hope you enjoy the tracks! Anyways let me show you why and how it started... With Fleet Foxes new album 'Helplessness Blues'. A bit slow but pretty fitting for a morning, had that album going for a few and enjoyed it much.
