Description

Atmosphere and Evidence have announced Australian tour dates in May. It will be their first time back on our shores since 2009.

Atmosphere has been a driving force in independent hip hop for twenty years. Rapper Slug (Sean Daley) and DJ/Producer Ant (Anthony Davis) were the first to put Twin Cities hip hop on the map and became the co-founders of independent label, Rhymesayers Entertainment.

During their career, Atmosphere have released eight albums, thirteen EPs and various side-projects, amounting to over a million units sold. As solo artists, their collaborations include the likes of Brother Ali, Murs, Evidence, Aesop Rock, KRS-One, Buckshot of Blackmoon, Jean Grae, DJ Vadim, El-P and DOOM.

One-third of the venerable LA hip hop act Dilated Peoples, in addition Evidence has produced tracks for the Beastie Boys, Linkin Park, Defari, Planet Asia and more, including co-production on Kanye West’s debut The College Dropout, which earned him his grammy.

In 2011 he released his long-awaited second studio album, Cats & Dogs, his first release since signing with Rhymesayers. This featured a stellar line-up of collaborations, including The Alchemist, DJ Premier, Statik Selektah, Aloe Blacc, Raekwon, Ras Kass, Slug, Fashawn, Termanology.
