To say that Anthony Attalla has had a meteoric rise in the last couple of years would be a big understatement. The Detroit native and Chicago resident has come up through the ranks thanks to strong releases on his own Incorrect Music label, Sharam’s Yoshitoshi and other world-renowned imprints such as Suara and Toolroom. Coupled with the ever-popular Incorrect Label showcases including the famous Groove Cruise Incorrect Afterhours, Attalla has created a massive cult following in the States and beyond.
Following past strong releases on the Yoshitoshi label including “Stranger” and “Fever,” Attalla returns exclusively through 6AM Group with two dance floor-ready heavy hitters right in time for the New Year.
“F1” immediately strikes as a must-have in any house DJ’s arsenal. Its bass-heavy staccato and bumpy groove is not only hypnotic but serves both as the fitting track amidst other dance-friendly records and to raise things to the next level in any set.
Conversely, “Why Do You” is muddier in all the right ways. Leaning towards techno, the track is armed with frenzied percussions and infectious bass. Its cloudy and enigmatic vocals give a sense of respite from the heavier techno, making this a track that fits a wide range of sounds.
This release arrives in perfect time for the New Year, and right in the middle of Attalla’s tour in Thailand. If you’re in the LA area, make sure to catch him in action at Exchange with Suara boss Coyu on the 2nd of January as he returned for a series of US dates for Winter 2016!
