Brooklyn-based producer (who did a noteworthy remix of a denitia and sene’s project) ATR777, also known as Andrew Thomas Reid’s new single “Down To Be Your Man” is out now and Okayfuture is proud to the one’s who premiere it. Based on a vocal chop of a phrase he spoke to his then-girlfriend during a rough patch, ATR777 playfully tweaks the sample to juxtapose a high a cartoonish chirp with a low screw to the point where it would easily fit into a remix of any Houston-based rap song.
The spacey, blippy song fits right in with the rest of the compilation from where it originated. As creative director of the artist-residency-meets-content-farm BKLYN1834, ATR777, personally helped select the 6 other artists who live with him in an old Victorian mansion deep in the heart of Brooklyn’s tree-lined and historic Ditmas Park neighborhood. Residents of the co-op are releasing their inaugural compilation, aptly titled Comp_01 on November 13th. Featuring an eclectic group of new and veteran musicians, recording engineers, and vocalists, the album spans from indie rock to electronic, to folk, and more, all lasso’ed together with many of the musicians guesting on each other’s tracks. Having 7 artists all living and co-creating together sounds crazy but judging by the content they’ve been churning out, it works.
