ATICA release ‘Go Back’ on Tchami’s Confession label
The Los Angeles-based duo of Pablo de Rosacruz and Ruslan Slatin first broke out as ATICA a year ago with a series of future bass, future house, and bass house remixes. ATICA found their first major exposure with their rambunctious track “Turn Up (feat. Ageelion),” released on Spinnin’ Records tech and deep house offshoot, Work Records.
Regardless of the genre, the commonality across all of ATICA’s releases thus far is their implementation of vitriolic, clattering basslines. For their most recent release, “Go Back,” the pair applies this trope in a unique way. “Go Back” has its fair share of kick-heavy synthesis and OWSLA-friendly bass shrieks, but the song’s heaviest facets find their way into the verses and builds, while the drop itself is more understated.
Very apropos for its release on Tchami’s Confession label, the track includes a cerebral house sensibility before progressing into a broken-beat, trap-inspired break. ATICA’s creativity bolsters Tchami’s decision to select them as the first American act to release on Confession.
