ATLiens and EDDIE share malevolent mid-tempo offering, ‘Closer’
The masked mid-tempo menaces of ATLiens have taken an auspicious accomplice for their most recent experimental bass cut, “Closer.” With the help of repeat mau5trap habitue, EDDIE, the foreboding duo delve deeper into subterranean soundscapes than ever before.
Employing an unnerving female vocal sample and an unearthly dose of sub bass, “Closer” is primed to transport listeners through the darkest realm of their cognitive coordinates, which is precisely the chrome-faced ATLiens’ intended destination.
The enigmatic ATLiens duo shot off in a fiery trajectory after Skrillex notably mixed their Party Thieves collaboration of 2015, “Chief,” into a Boiler Room set of his. Soon after, they rendezvoused with Bassnectar, on OWSLA, no less, for the resounding, collaborative “Interlock.” It’s been onward and upward since then for the faceless bass phantoms.
