Album Notes
Founder of the fledgling Tone Def Systems label and mellow mover in the studio, Atarilogic is synonymous with Rebel Music. Utilizing spaced-out styles and astronautical engineering theories, an eccentric and incidentalist sonic enthusiasm and plenty of psychedlia, Atarilogic combines experimentalism with luminous cadences to produce something strange and new. This is hybrid music; the sound of the future that seems equally at home in much of the great psychedelic and dance related musical movements of the past as well as right now. Moody Uzis provides us a selection of some of the artist’s favorite works. In this, his first release, one can imagine lounge antics bordering on the Gonzoistic, Prankster style hijinks in the biker bar and mad encounters with Le Moderne. Classical styles morph into breaks, hi-hats ufo through the sky, the Fortean Night warms our Moody Uzis. Listen.


“Atarilogic is a frenetic William Burroughs with all of the bravado of Afrika Bambaataa’s futuristic retrology. A throwback with all of the inklings of the original article.” - Ann Weaton, Home School

“An evening with Atarilogic is an experience in the absurd - where styles clash, floors are trashed and all must dance. From futuistic tabla to distorted industrial sounds and even polka music, Atarilogic knows how to make the crowd jump...even if it is more than likely for his own amusement.” - Michael Graham, Introduction

“Even without partner, Alaska; Atarilogic remains a sonic force to be reckoned with. Whereas, his first team-up was tea, this is straight gasoline.” - Jeff Locke, Around


“Complex arrangements and “cut-and-paste” technique make Moody Uzis as incredibly unlikely today as it might have been in the French Bohemian movement. Truly one of a kind!” - Brian Archer, Found Sound

“Extensive listening and an ear for incidentalia pepper what at first appear to be hip hop beats which are quickly transmogrified by the artist into Latin folk ballads, horror soundtracks and dubplate fare.” - Cameron Anderson, Glowsound

“If Moody Uzis is a metaphor for this album being as explosive as a cache of small, handheld firearms, then the metaphor is not only apt, but remains haunting since much of the album is fluent in the disarming language of harmony and elegance.” - John Austin, The Note

Brad at CD Baby

Instrumental hip hop doesn't have to consist solely of readymade beats just waiting for an MC to complete the equation. When skillfully executed, it's an art form unto itself, a heady challenge for a composer who seeks to keep listeners engaged without shoving lyrics down their throats. Having worked with some top-shelf MCs thus far in his career, this Indiana producer is ready to break out, dropping a solo collection of beats that is crackling with both force and finesse. "Some Sort of Solace" lives up to its name, laying back and letting things comfortably ride. "Back 2 the Back" is choppy chaos, and its melding of old school cuts and post-modern blippage is impossible to ignore. "Dogs of Dyslexia" is even more over the top, pushing the levels to the precipice of distortion and knocking hard on the noggin. There are patches of vocals on a few tracks here, but for the most part, the proceedings are consumed with intricate dissection of the beats, always tossing out little loops and replacing them just as quick. There's no static here, only tight compositions that always push it forward.
