NEW: ATO - Space To - Prod by. Eden - Visuals by. Joey Brodnax
Leeds based rapper ATO is providing depth and thought-provoking performances in a rapidly rising UK Hip-Hop scene, and after impressing with the first single from his forthcoming EP, the gifted creative is now back teasing us with its eventual release with the latest drop entitled 'Space To'.
With frequent collaborator EDEN once again at the helm, 'Space To' resides in a similar vein to previous release '24' with its lo-fi production. Warped adlibs decorate the beat, providing melody, adding texture and elevating a purposefully minimal Hip-Hop inspired track. Energetic from the onset, it subtly builds tension and eventually morphs into something a lot darker as ATO leads into a path of introspection. His personal narrative envelops the track, addressing the inner conflict between looking forward and the ‘traps of the past’ – a theme that will be significant in the EP to come.
Keeping it within the 'family' again, the brand-new visuals for 'Space To' come courtesy of Joey Brodnax and centre around a scenic excursion through the city with ATO in the passenger seat. Keeping it all freeform, low budget and DIY as he does best, it’s the stamp of his individuality as he delivers yet another eclectic visual.
Be sure to check out the brand new single below, and keep your eyes peeled for the forthcoming E.P.
