For over two decades, Atmosphere has maintained a course of rigorous output, releasing over two dozen studio albums, EP’s and collaborative side projects in as many years. In that time, the venerated duo have built a legacy out of bringing honesty, humility and vulnerability to the forefront of their music, continually challenging themselves to evolve without straying too far from their roots. Slug has proven masterful at storytelling and writing compelling narratives, leaving a trail of his own influence while paying homage to the rappers and songwriters that helped shape him. Ant has skillfully molded the soundtracks with inspiration from soul, funk, rock, reggae and the wizardry of hip-hop’s pioneering DJ’s and producers, creating his own trademark sounds while providing the pulse for songs about life, love, stress and setbacks. At its essence, Atmosphere has been a musical shepherd, and with each new album comes a new journey as they guide generations of listeners through this thing called life.
Living Legend — few within hip hop ever earn such a moniker, but with nearly 40 solo and collaborative releases, Los Angeles’ MURS has truly run the gamut of independent success.
Early work with 3 Melancholy Gypsys and the iconic Living Legends paved the way for MURS’ celebrated journey in the music industry. The West Coast representative would use this unparalleled crash-course in indie hip hop to establish his critically-acclaimed catalog of work, including“MURS 3:16 The 9th Wonder Edition”.
2008’s release of “Murs For President” (Warner Bros.) provided a new national spotlight. As the founder of the pivotal Paid Dues festival, MURS would continue to elevate his presence in the genre by amassing a list of collaborations that included Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, will.i.am, DJ Quik, E-40 and many others. His signing with Tech N9ne’s independent Strange Music label in 2014 yielded three full-length albums as well as several national tours. He further raised the stakes by breaking a Guinness World Record with a 24-hour live rap marathon on Twitch in 2016.
2019 saw MURS return to his roots, teaming with 9th Wonder for the highly-anticipated release of “The Iliad Is Dead And The Odyssey Is Over”. Meanwhile, the summer of 2020 gave way to the triumphant return of Felt — the duo comprised of Murs and Slug of Atmosphere, with the surprise release of their fourth album,“Felt4U”. Murs closed out 2020, partnering with DJ.Fresh for the release of “Love & Rockets Vol 2: The Declaration”. The full-length solo album stands as a personal testament to Murs’ influence and legacy on West Coast music. Operating independently of labels once again, MURS stands as a beacon of self-made success and unbridled respect for the craft in a new era.
