As we found out recently, through our in-depth study of Atlanta with Kai Alcé, Byron The Aquarius and Stefan Ringer, house music in the American South is undergoing a renaissance at the minute. Cheaper rent and a more easygoing lifestyle, compared to the East Coast titans of the genre further north, have helped it become a fertile ground for new and established talent to settle, create and flourish.
Much has been made of Atlanta’s trap and hip-hop scene, as Boiler Room showcased last year with Awful Records, but last month house became the subject, in the Topman x Boiler Room Neighborhoods show at CGI Records, with Stefan Ringer, Fit of Body and TWINS. Must Have Records boss Jay Simon was the fourth guest and we can bring you an exclusive first listed to his 60 minute set, full of soul and warmth. Further proof that Atlanta is a city worth keeping tabs on.
