Atlas is an emerging — and fairly mysterious — emcee. Influenced by some underground hip-hop, the emerging emcee wants to be a positive yet appealing influence that helps lead the listener’s mind state of spiritual growth. His latest single “Work in progress” is centered around a soulful and vibey production featuring twinkling keys, skittering boom bap and supple bass line. And it’s roomy enough for the emerging’s artist’s self-assured and dexterous flow. Sonically, “Work in progress” harkens back to hip-hop’s golden era — but with a modern sensibility and thoughtful ness that sets him apart from a very crowded field.
