Atmosphere, Prof, Dem Atlas and Fundo


Roseland (map) Northwest
Fri., Sept. 12, 8 p.m. 2014 All Ages

Atmosphere—the hiphop duo of emcee Sean "Slug" Daly and DJ/producer Anthony "Ant" Davis—needs little introduction. Both are O.G. architects of Rhymesayers Entertainment, the independent Minneapolis record label founded in the mid '90s. Their labelmates include left-field favorites Aesop Rock, MF DOOM, and Eyedea (RIP), and lyrical heavyweight Brother Ali. That alone is enough to cement their position as legends in underground rap circles, but Atmosphere refuses to rest on their laurels. On their latest full-length, Southsiders, Slug forcefully declaims heartfelt bars over Ant's nuanced soundscapes with a startling immediacy that's infused with political disgust and personal introspection. Recent Rhymesayers signees Prof and Dem Atlas get the party started. Prof brings his purposefully obnoxious party vibe, while Dem Atlas shines with a unique style reminiscent of Chance the Rapper's second cousin getting grimy over golden-age production. RYAN FEIGH
