A world-leading label in power-punching electronic music spanning everything from bombastic electro, to tribal-influenced big-room and stadium-ready anthems; Smash The House has always continued to release from the industry’s biggest artists as well as shining the spotlight on new talents.
2019 is no different, as label owners Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike now introduce ATIKA PATUM to the world, the effervescent alter-ago of an artist that remains a mystery to the outside world, creating a concept that promotes freedom, self-realisation and ultimately, let’s the creative juices flow.
The eponymous track adds to the ambiguity surrounding the project as almost four-minutes of collaged carnage ensue. Opening with a paired-back beat, the drums – simplistic yet powerful in their capture – boom in before declarations of “I am the reason of the fire in the sun” slink in. The true power and weight of the track is felt upon the chorus, chants of “ATIKA PATUM!” taking centre stage for a prevailing, dominant deliverance that invites the listener into their world of self-expression and adventure.
