All Atomic is an Electronic Music Producer from Bristol UK
Who touches on different styles of Electronic music. He started producing music in 2016 his Productions is a fusion of Disco, Electro, Rave, Techno and Trance with a few Ambient tracks included .
All Atomic is a product of the (UK) early rave scene and DJ'ed at the illegal warehouses and illegal raves, but really started learning to Mix before House music arrived in the UK, starting with electro, hip hop, funk, so when Acid House came about All Atomic was already Blessed with the Skills to DJ, but felt he needed to experience things from the other side of the decks where the party people were at, It's all very well spinning tunes and seeing how a tune drops, but not really getting the impact and feel of the people if you are not living it out and in the moment with the crowd. So now he is putting what he has learned at raves and chill out sessions into his music...
All Atomic is also a Bass Guitarist and through this skill found that Playing the Bass has fine tuned his ear for music and is now releasing music on his own Label - All Atomic Tunes
All Atomic has been on numerous Internet Radio Stations Globally and his popularity is increasing, and on reverbnation Remains in the Top 10 in his home town Bristol (UK) often Peaking at Number 1 on the Bristol Reverbnation Chart and also in the 10 ten in the south west Region UK, also on reverbnation, it was here that DOUG E Fresh reached out to All Atomic to join POZE.
All Atomic, likes the incognto persona he has in Bristol, number 1, but no one actually knows who he is, except his immediate friends and family and fellow Musicians and artists who already know him, he is not really a show boat kinda guy, even though on occasion he has to come out and reveal himself after some persuasion (ask and you shall recieve), due to him wanting to just do the music, this also gives him more freedom to be himself in his creation and not get pulled into the hype and be more real with himself and the people immediately around him, although he is open to radio interviews when asked.
He likes to think he is approchable but only for people and organazations with genuine interest.
He has over 50 tracks released over the years and his production techniques have improved over the years as he strives to always be better than the last release. ( as quoted in Jamsphere Magazine)
(This is one of the reviews i had by Jamsphere)(released mixed and mastered by myself and released on All Atmic Tunes - my label) (Remixes are by other Artist but I (All Atomic) mastered them.)
(Yes i do all my own mastering and mixing now plus the artwork, im my own entity)
He was signed to the UK indie label, "Pink Dolphin Music LTD" but left some years ago since access to distribution is now easily availble to Indie Artist, and now feels there is no need for a 3rd party label to get involved, and has now created his own label, but promotion is another step overcome. All Atomic is thankful POZE has given him the opportunity to do so.
All Atomic has a new Album coming out on 20 Jan 2023 called New Grooves, with has around 10-11 tracks.
This Album has different Flavours on it, because he didnt want to do an album with the same vibe right the way through as he feels this may run the risk of becoming boring for the listener and wants it to be entertaining, or if not there is a track on the album that will appeal to someone then thats a good thing in itself. But this is by no means reason to stop.
All Atomic is at the moment completing a new release after the New Grooves Album. Which are 3 remixes of previous Single, but All Atomic is not revealing what this is just yet, and is fighting with himself not to leak out a demo of the Remixes as he is excited about them...
