ATMOSPHERE tell it like it is
Fearlessly merging indie rock and hip hop, genre-bending Minneapolis duo Atmosphere was formed fresh out of high school by rapper Sean Daley AKA Slug and DJ/producer Anthony Davis AKA Ant. Honing their craft throughout the 90s, the duo became a regular in the city's underground hip hop scene before breaking into the mainstream in 1997 with the release of their debut album 'Overcast!'. Over two decades later, Slug and Ant continue to maintain a cult-like following of fans with a dynamic work ethic, prolific creative output and relentless tour schedule.
Evolving out of their hip-hop, graffiti and breakdancing flavored beginnings, Atmosphere's sound spans a range of emotions as well as genres, pairing personal lyrics with expertly crafted rhymes, witty wordplay and old school beats, samples and sounds. As the years have passed, the outfit has grown from cocky young twenty-somethings with something to prove to assured, confident masters of their craft!
