Hailing from Pefki, near Athens in Greece, Atik is the young producer who is about to take the bass music scene by storm.
Atik first caught our attention with ‘Itz Mr. Grim’, the filthiest, heaviest, bass heavy trap tune we have heard in a long time. A heavy use of drums establishes a really catchy rhythm early on, but the way he chops it up in the second half of the song prove that Atik is a force to be reckoned with. The drop is absolutely insane, and so different from everything else we’ve been hearing lately. The synths on this one create such an intense feeling of suspense, and each drop is heavier than the last. We can’t get enough of Atik’s unique sound!
Atik also garnered a lot of attention when he won the popular vote for Cymatics’ Jawz for XFER Serum contest with his track ‘Get Love’. This one has a darker intro, but still creates that sense of suspense that we have come to love from Atik, and the distorted vocals at the beginning add to that effect. We love the squeaky sounds he uses, and you can rest assured this one also has some really filthy drops. There’s a lot going on on this track, but Atik’s masterful production makes it work, creating a truly dynamic tune. It’s no surprise he was the popular vote winner for this!
More recently, Atik did a remix for Marshmello’s ‘Alone’, and once again we are blown away. This track is entirely different from the original, something that seems unfortunately rare in remixes these days. You get lots of Atik’s unique, squeaky trap sound blended in with the original vocals but in a totally reimagined way. We love it!
Atik has such a unique style, and has created a really strong brand for himself with his ‘ghost in the Atik’ theme, and we can’t wait to see where he goes next. Be sure to follow him on Twitter, Soundcloud, Facebook and Instagram to keep up with what is sure to be an explosive journey for this young producer.
