Listen: Atmosphere, "Kanye West"

Atmosphere Kanye West

Atmosphere’s new record Southsiders will likely win 2014 in terms of best song titles – case in point, the latest single we can sample, “Kanye West.” Ant’s maximalist in-house production - taking a clue from the distorted, arty beats that defined Kanye’sMy Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Yeezus - leaves Slug plenty of room to “do the Kanye West” – “put your hands up like you give a damn and a fuck.” It’s kind of touching: we do love all those songs calling out and challenging other artists, but it’s also great to hear some charming, sincere fanboyism. You can pick up Southsiders in a record store starting May 6th.
