Masked duo ATLiens is back with “Shelter”, a killer track laced with resounding basslines and extraterrestrial sound design.
When it comes to the perfect infusion of trap and weird bass, ATLiens is at the top of the game. After releasing their trippy bass collaboration “Contact” with Blanke, which has been rinsed by the likes of Black Tiger Sex Machine and several other bass heavyweights, 2019 is shaping up to be a big year for the duo. Ranging from grungy robotic clicks to subterranean warbles and hauntingly dark soundscapes, ATLiens‘ sound has never failed to get our bones jiggling and necks bobbing for bass crumbs. Released on Bassrush Records, the duo’s newest track “Shelter” combines metallic bass ripples and ominous vocals to make one hell of a tune.
What we can’t help but love about ATLiens is their apparent appreciation for diversity in their sound. Rather than getting caught up in cookie-cutter dubstep or the same deep and glitchy basslines of freeform bass, the duo seemingly changes up their sonic direction with each release. From the crunchy pops of bass in “Contact”, to growling hiccups and static-filled backdrops in their collaboration with EDDIE titled “Closer”, there hasn’t been a single predictable moment in their discography. “Shelter” pairs ATLiens’ signature trap vibes with deep basslines and syncopated clicks, making this the perfect tune to get weird and wobbly to.
“Shelter” is the second single off ATLiens’ upcoming EP Ghost Planet, and by the looks of it, this is going to be one of the best EPs we’ve heard in a while.
