Today, Uncommon Records presents Atari Blitzkrieg's long awaited full length Uncommon debut, Technicolor Crime Scenes. Atari explains that this album was "inspired by this 24/7 media consumption culture" and that it "doesn't praise or critisize that, it simply reflects on it, so because of that the album is obviously much darker in tone then anything I've done in the past". To call Atari Blitzkrieg eclectic would be a colossal understatement. The Virginia-based artist explores a wide array of soundscapes that leave most speechless when it comes to placing a label on his music. Atari could fill a room with gamers, head bangers and beat poets and please them all. With Technicolor Crime Scenes, Atari does just that, all the while arfully critiquing our media culture in subtle and not-so subtle ways. While Atari self-produced a large portion of the album he enlisted the talents of 4th Disciple, Krohme, Nasa, IV the Polymath, Willie Green & Masai Bey as well. He also collaborated with Hell-Razah, C-Rayz Walz, Breez Evahflowin, Nasa and Masai on the mic. Get the album NOW at all major digital retailers including:
