Atlas at The House Party
The new age sound of a deep house track falls and locks in comfortably with a nuanced vocal track filled with aged revelations.
The song hit me a bit from the side, I had started off listening to the song purely by ear, not really delving into the lyrics or anything, just enjoying the deep house beats, strong high-energy pop breaks, and generally entertaining developments. The song, however, for some reason or another, felt a bit disjointed and it wasn't until I listened to the lyrics that it all kinda clicked.
The song itself has a sound that calls back to an earlier time in House Music, an almost lighter soundscape, something not of the times, something Grecian compared to the neo-modern house sounds of today. The lyrics reminisce on older times, on how the vocalist was there when everything started - at the genesis of house music - and the track itself is filled with callback easter eggs.
A little puzzle box of a song. Enjoy!
