[Artist Highlight]

Time for another Artist Highlight with a slightly different flavour to what you’ll normally find here on FatKidOnFire…

I got a little email from AJ/ The Attic Project the other day, introducing himself and linking to a track he wanted some feedback on. We got talking and then, out of the blue, AJ offered up two tracks as FKOF free downloads – which was a bit of a surprise given his recent successes and forthcoming releases. We talked a bit more and then decided to sort this ‘Artist Highlight’; with more to come later this year…

“Characterised by layers of intricate melodies, oriental instrumentation, animalistic samples and slick, syncopated percussion, The Attic Project is the pseudonym for 19-year-old Bristol bred but Manchester-based student AJ Nisbet. His music strives to combine the mysticism and atmosphere of eastern sounds with the beats and bass of the western world; creating ambient, delicate but powerful bass driven music, incorporating everything from garage to trip-hop to traditional Hindi prayer samples.

“Having recently released an EP entitled ‘Memories From Myth’ on Slime Recordings (previously releasing such legends as Phaeleh and Submerse) with another release forthcoming on Soulstep Records, T.A.P has gained popular support from Sub.FM, Phaeleh and Bwana to name a few, as well as forthcoming shows at nights such as Selective Hearing in Manchester and Inflect in Bristol, alongside the likes of Ital Tek and other big names.

“Juno Download recently reviewed ‘Memories From Myth’, commenting; “breakbeat as enchanting and captivating as this doesn’t come from some empty-headed jerkwad who dreams of shiny objects and little else… Beautiful”.

“Life should be a forward progression but with The Attic Project, the world is a place of eternally multicultural sound, evident in the music he creates.”

The two tracks AJ has decided to giveaway here on FKOF are absolutely brilliant – FKOF free downloads up for grabs as 320mp3s. Can’t fault either of them and if these two are anything to go by, the future’s very bright for this young producer…
