Atropolis "Urban Chief"
New York native Adam Partridge (a.k.a. Atropolis) pulls rhythmic cues from around the globe, and "Urban Chief"—taken from his recently released Transitions LP for Cumba Mela—embodies the international jumble of his hometown. Partridge's production references cumbia, modern bass music, and other worldly sounds while still managing to skirt any strict categorization. Instead, the cut starts with a mellow Latin rhythm, escalating to rapid, subwoofer-busting levels around the halfway mark, and then easing to a crawl in its final minute.
