ATR777 – Down To Be Your Man (Video)

ATR777 – Down To Be Your Man (Video)

The influence of ATR777‘s Texas roots shines through with slow tempos and chopped and screwed vocal samples.

Brooklyn-based producer ATR777 (aka Andrew Thomas Reid) has worked with everyone fromTheophilus London to Freddie Gibbs to denitia and sene to Blu, to Coco O from Quadron but this time, he’s turning attention to himself. As part of BKLYN1834‘s upcoming compilation album release, ATR777 is releasing the song and video for the tripped-out song “Down To be Your Man.” Based on an attempt to maintain a failing relationship, ATR777’s vocal sample for the phrase “Down to be your man” became the loop on which the entire song is based. The video, which he filmed on a trip to Shanghai, reflects the aesthetics heard in the song with its spacious, down-tempo grooves, and ghostly textures of chopped and screwed vocals.
