All Atomic – metaphysics melds with the spirit of dance

DJ/Producer All Atomic, from Bristol United Kingdom, grew up around music and was mixing tunes at nine years old and was soon deejaying at illegal raves. His music is a fusion of his influences: “You have to have an open mind when making music,” says All Atomic. “Let the music guide you, it will tell you what it needs you to do.” Persuaded by artist and producer Aniofades, All Atomic sent a demo to the Pink Dolphin Music Ltd label, and got signed up. A heap of well-received releases followed, with the producer bringing his classically unique sound to the

It’s one of those few records that defy categorization. “Bang Bang EP” falls clearly into EDM, but jumps seamlessly through various influences from rock to pop to soul to rap; it feels as if the EP is a journey from beginning to end. One moment you’re in the South Bronx, one moment you are in Miami. Then Ibiza. Then London. Each track is a different collage of sounds and rhythms, which is also what makes “Bang Bang” so unique.

Each song is crafted and laid out with tight beats and awesome production. It is new and old, calming and at the next moment exciting. It is art that you experience. It sets a mood; it is music for making love, for dancing, for cleaning the house. It’s great! Matt Fox’s music on here captures that perfect moment between EDM and everything else, where rhythm and melody intersect. From the opening beats of the title track, “Bang Bang”, which features the exquisite vocals of Alexis Salgado, you will find yourself getting that feeling over and over again that you have just discovered something great that the rest of the world does not know about.

Have no doubts, this Phoenix boy is going to go big. Not too hard and not too soft the songs range from uplifting to inspirational to introspective to simply great.  To help round out the bang for the buck, besides Alexis Salgado, four of the tracks also feature some up-and-coming EDM singers that you may already have heard of King Beefy, LsDUB, Robby and Nyoka Ny.  My favorite tracks are without a doubt those featuring Alexis Salgado, “Bang Bang” and “Not The Only One” with King Beefy’s “Get Away” coming a close third. Throughout though, Matt Fox is showing the world how the bounds of electronic music truly are limitless.

Through his sounds, distortions, drum loops, and other effects he shows that there is so much room for musical experimentation given the resources that musicians now have to work with. He also explores rhythms that are more than just the usual four-to-the-floor dance beats. Matt Fox is one of the frontrunners in showing how music can cross not only the bounds of genre, but also the bounds of old versus new.
