With DJs and producers as varied as Fatboy Slim, Steve Aoki and Tony Senghore currently supporting their tracks, Atari Teenage Riot are one of the most exciting names in the scene. Recently released on Dim Mak Records, the’ve reignited their collection with a new album “Is This Hyperreal?”– described as an “acetylene laced documentation of ATR’s re-ignition after an eleven year silence” by NME.com.
Produced, mixed, recorded with Alec Empire, Nic Endo and new ATR member CX Kidtronik (Saul Williams / Nine Inch Nails) at ATR’s fourth studio release was made at the Hellish Vortex studio in Berlin.
As one of the lead singles from “Is This Hyperreal?”, “The Collapse of History” was one of the album’s many highlights. Throwing listeners for a complete curveball where Alec Empire flexes his early 90s hardcore influence by intertwining stadium sized jungle breakbeats with a national anthem. Now ATR, Digitial Harcore and Dim Mak Records have teamed up to offer you the chance to remix this modern classic.
A message from Alec Empire:
“Atari Teenage Riot originated in the techno underground rave scene in the early 90s. DJing was what started the group’s activities. Since then a lot has happened. I keep meeting producers and DJs from all kinds of genres of electronic music who love ATR. The idea is to have the new single spread out to all those different areas and connect them! 🙂 When you remix the new song, do what feels right to you (as opposed to what you think ATR or the label might like).”
