ATLiens represent the epitome of enigma. In an ultra-secretive interview, the masked duo explained that the inspiration behind their sound stems from their obsessions alternate realities and the underworld. These concepts take complete hold in the music video for their latest track, “Alchemy.”
“Alchemy” continues the Atlanta duo’s favoring of experimental trap. Starting with a chopped-up vocal layer, the track weaves into a bass-ridden groove that progresses into an addictive breakbeat. It then mesmerizes you as it pans between your ears. In the music video, ATLiens dive into an occult fantasy, juxtaposing a bed of crystals with extraterrestrial blood.
ATLiens have been blazing through the bass music scene for years with their signature chopped-and-screwed vocal sampling style. Their recent releases include “Interlock,” a collaboration with Bassnectar released through OWSLA last month.
