Champions EP – SMOG Records [Out Now]
Atlantic Connection takes you to higher ground with his latest release “Champions” on SMOG Records. The seven track EP takes us on a journey through Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Hip Hop, Soul, Footwor, Funk, Jazz, Jungle, and classic rave vibes. The intro track “Rise Above” goes straight into the clouds with it’s uplifting piano chords and ambient strings. “Area 51” is more of a soulful groove with ekrie theremin sounds and sci-fi samples. The title track “Champions” takes on the Juke/Jungle concept and gives it a more techy edge. Atlantic Connection takes it back towards his liquid funk roots in “Long Road Home”, a Drum & Bass throwback. “Blue Skies” goes even further back to the era of Rave and the Proto-Jungle sound with its Techno bleeps and a breakbeat that caries it through. The EP closes out with “Beyond Control” – a deep 140 roller featuring Philadelphia based MC Armanni Reign.
