Jake Atlas is one weird bird, and one that can’t be stopped. After playing at Tuscon’s Gem and Jam Festival this past weekend, and with stops at Miami’s Fractal Beach and New Orleans this weekend, there’s no end in sight for the enigmatic producer named Thriftworks.
Eccentricity is part of what makes his sound so refreshing. Worlds apart from his aggressive bass contemporaries, his prolific output is hazy, enveloping and chilling, with plenty of low-end thump across the board.
2017’s The Feather and the Sword EP set dusty downtempo mechanics to scorching distant synths that are part of Atlas’ signature style. It’s an excellent entry point to his live show, particularly the song, “Flap Jack’s Revenge.”
Give the EP a listen below.
With plenty of recent exposure opening for Bassnectar at both Basscenter 2016 and Freestyle Sessions, continued collabs with Russ Liquid, and an ever-expanding catalog of spacey material, Thriftworks is an act absolutely worth catching in 2018.
New Orleans: Don’t miss Thriftworks this Saturday, February 3, at Republic NOLA. Opening for him is Rekanize and Zupparty.
Start your Mardi Gras early with this one! Tickets for the event are available here.
