Scotsman Austin Ato’s light has been burning bright over the last twelve months, with acclaimed releases on Defected and Percolate placing his productions firmly on the radar of in-the-know selectors. As a DJ, Austin’s groove-filled sets radiate good energy, much reflected in his Classic Music Company debut ‘Heat’, a two-track release that illustrates Austin’s enviable ability to create dancefloor magic. Opening with the title track, choppy guitar riffs, a soulful vocal and undulating, groove-filled bassline give ‘Heat’ its understated yet bountiful club appeal. Up next Austin teams up with Classic label-mate Dave Giles II (of Dave + Sam) on ‘Drip’, with Dave’s captivating spoken word narrating as Austin provides an atmospheric backdrop of ambient synths and melodic keys for a laid-back vibe. Destined to be one of this summer’s most charismatic releases, Austin’s innate musicality shines through on ‘Heat’ like never before.
