‘space to’ is the new release from Leeds-based rapper ATO and follows the blissful ’24’. Both very versatile tracks and thought-provoking visuals. ‘space to’ is cinematic with its dreamy soundscape and warped beat. It absorbs you like a fuzzy blanket as you’re taken on a journey with ATO in the passenger seat around the city. The music video, made with help from Joey Brodnax, is not glossy or high-budget but enhances the track and the lyrics.
ATO has spent time in various places, from Seoul, Ithaca – New York, Copenhagen, and Cape Town and the different cultures have inspired his music as do his eclectic musical influences ranging from Eminem, Kano, Ghostpoet and Amy Winehouse.
ATO is gearing up for his forthcoming project ‘EP3’ which has a guest feature from US rapper Vic Mensa. Exciting stuff.
