Denver based producer Atic takes time out from his Critical Waves collaborative project to bring a pair of solo tracks to Quentin Hiatus’ Free Love Digi imprint. The Message evokes the spirit of 90s techstep, with crisp breaks, dark bass and sci-fi samples. There’s more than a hint of classic Ed Rush & Optical to this one, but it’s definitely more homage than plagiarism.
Crystal continues the vibe, with creepy pads on the intro dropping into a hollowed out bassline and a stepper’s break with some distinctive snares; ominous and insistent. Check out the clips below and grab this from your favourite digital outlet now.
