Atmosphere 2014 Tour News and Updates
Champions of underground hip-hop, Atmosphere is the brainchild of rapper Sean Daley (Slug) and producer Anthony Davis (Ant). Atmosphere changed the game with the release of Overcast!, which displayed the group’s interest in anti-gangster positivity, dynamic sound and most notably, poetic and complex lyricism. Whether under the collective Rhymesayers, or Headshots, these indie rap superstars have maintained their integrity to underground hip-hop mentality and sound since they first emerged out of Minneapolis in 1989.
Despite carrying an indie-rock, hip-hop, and rap following, Atmosphere does not always make music conducive to pop fame--the group even released a free-download record in 2007, aptly dubbed Strictly Leakage. Their most radio-friendly hit is “Modern Man’s Hustle” borne from the album God Loves Ugly. Atmosphere has released seven full-length albums and five EPs, many of which are considered classic hip-hop works, with their most recent effort 2014’s Southsiders.
Atmosphere is perpetually on tour, a habit Slug credits as the backbone of their global popularity. The group, which features rappers Eyeda, Mr.Dibbs and other collaborators on the road, will tour the US from August-September this year; hitting Morrison, Las Vegas, Hollywood, Eugene, Seattle, Boise, Salt Lake City and more.
