Attikus releases his first single from the forthcoming LP UPROARSandDOWNPOURS, titled howDEMONSmove.
This project will be available on all digital platforms on Nov 24.
This project is the second release on the new Vancouver based label Move Right Music.
howDEMONSmove – Is a dark track about embracing your darkest, ugliest sides. It
speaks on listening to those dark little voices when they speak in your head. These
voices reveal things about you. Really let them take you in and use them to deal with life.
Bask in your checkered pasts, your worst mistakes, your misconceptions and self-doubt.
It’s trying to tell you something important.
As a widely respected performer and songwriter, veteran entertainer ATTIKUS, “is an
instant conjurer of mental imagery” (Hiphopvancouver.com).
Having toured for over a decade throughout Canada, USA and Cuba, ATTIKUS is a well
established singer and emcee. Known for intense and powerful performances, BIG ATTI
delivers prolifically mind bending linguistics, blended with a smooth baritone singing style
reminiscent of old school soul and Mo-Town. His ability to paint his words on the
listeners’ mental canvas has earned ATTIKUS a legion of dedicated fans. Member of
acclaimed hip-hop band Groundbreakers and legendary rap/soul group FATTIKUS (with
Fatty Down), ATTI has played hundreds of shows. From opening for big name acts, to
festivals such as Shambhala, to house parties, ATTI has moved every crowd he
encounters. Signed to Wandering Worx Ent from 2009 to 2016, ATTI dropped two
albums (BOO RADLEY, THE MADNESS) and one mixtape (BEFORE THE MADNESS),
all to rave reviews.
Recently ATTIKUS took some time off touring to focus on the studio. During that time he
finished projects with producers Vago, Fresh Kills, RLGN and Steps Necessary. He also
recorded a SIXTO RODRIGUEZ tribute project (SONGS4SIXTO) with his band THE
W.A.S. In summer 2017, ATTI was inducted as a member in world hip-hop collective ILLLEGITIMATE,
and signed a record deal with MOVE RIGHT MUSIC.
UPROARSandDOWNPOURS, a new full-length project with producer Vago, releases in
Fall 2017 through MOVE RIGHT and manager/label head Craig Macmillan.
Back touring and performing new material, ATTIKUS has tour plans in Canada, USA and
Europe in 2018. With his lady DJ SYDUCTIVE on the decks, and beat boxer GBOXX and
guitarist KRISTOPHER JAMES at his side, BIG ATTIKUS is lighting up stages and
enlightening listeners everywhere his nomadic soul leads him.
