Audio: Malawi Producer Atu's Future RnB

Listen to Malawi/Ann Arbor producer Atu's hazy future RnB album "Pictures On Silence" and watch a highly-stylized video for "The Duo" featuring Sango.


Malawi producer Atu constructs some ethereal (and of-the-time) beats peppered with pitched-up female RnB vocal samples and layers of reverb-ed kicks. The 20-year-old Ann-Arbor based beatsmith just dropped the hazy wonderland 10-track Pictures On Silence LP on Soulection, which you can stream/buy in full below. In addition, watch a highly-stylized black-and-white video for album standout "The Duo" featuring Sango.
