The latest video from Atmosphere was just given life, as they continue delivering the gems from their most recent album. On Earring, the Minneapolis duo draft in one of their oldest friends and collaborators, Musab FKA Beyond, with the video shot against a backdrop that feels like it could have been a Coen Brothers brainchild. Earring is lifted from Mi Vida Local, which is out now on Rhymesayers.

Brand new visuals from Atmosphere, for yet another gem taken from their latest album. The video was directed by Johannes Roth and Slug. Mi Vida Local is out now on Rhymesayers.

Great track from deM atlaS as he drops the latest video from his recent Bad Actress album. Bad Days Are Over also features fellow RSE label mates, Atmosphere, and the video was made by Beth Saravo on the recent Mi Vida Local tour. You can find downloads for Bad Actress here.

Another great track from Mi Vida Local, as Atmosphere deliver a simple yet effective video for Delicate. If you’re not aware, Atmosphere are hitting London as part of their European tour, so you can catch them at The Electric Ballroom on 23 April. Also check out my in-depth interview with Slug over at Grown Up Rap if you haven’t done so already.

Another day, another visual gem from the most recent Atmosphere album. Graffiti sees the Minneapolis duo teaming up once again with director, Jason Goldwatch, who once again provides another sublime backdrop for Ant’s triumphant production. The album, Mi Vida Local, is out now on Rhymesayers.

Last year I did a round-up of some of my favourite insults from jewel runner and indie rap pioneer, El-P. Not content with ending it there, I have now tackled the larger and perhaps more rewarding task of selecting my favourite guest verses that he’s blessed us with over the last two decades or so. Before I started actually writing this, I had a pretty good idea in my head of how this Top 5 would end up looking, but it’s not until you start researching this sort of thing that you realise just how many tracks El-P has guested on across his career. So here we go with MY five favourite guest verses from the man himself (capitals on the ‘MY’, don’t @ me!).

Atmosphere continue to build the hype for their forthcoming album, Mi Vida Local, which is due for release tomorrow. The video for Jerome was made by Evidence and Stephen Vanasco. Mi Vida Local is available to pre-order now via Rhymesayers.

Last week Rhymesayers announced that we would see the arrival of a new album from Atmosphere before the year is done. They also gifted us a new video from the project. Virgo is an important aspect of Atmosphere’s career, as both Ant and Slug fall under that sign, with numerous Virgo references peppering their back catalogue – “The player met a virgin made a Virgo named him Sean” etc. The album, Mi Vida Local, is scheduled for release on 5 October. The video was made by Jason Goldwatch.

This new song from Atmosphere surfaced a couple of weeks ago, amid rumours of a new album beckoning as well. Make It All Better Again is classic Atmosphere, with Slug recounting tales of woe fused with more than a glimmer of hope. You can stream/download the track from all the usual spots. Expect to hear more news on the album coming very soon.

This is an old interview me and a friend did back in 2008. I thought it had been lost forever, as the site we did it for is no longer around. Then I stumbled across an archived copy online yesterday, so thought I would share it. It was the first face to face interview I had ever done and I was nervous as fuck. It took place at the The Social in London in 2008, at a listening party for Atmosphere’s forthcoming album at the time, When Life Gives You Lemons. Read the rest of this entry »
