Grayscale, the highly anticipated sophomore release from The Atomica Project, embodies in itself the struggle of its execution. Taking nearly 3 years to complete, Grayscale is filled with elaborate narratives of failure and recovery. Loosely based on the dramatic climate of Lauren Cheatham and Wade Alin's adopted home of Chicago, many of the tracks draw parallels between the cinematic storms of the Midwest and the turmoil of interpersonal relationships.
Alin's detailed production on Grayscale constructs a heavily orchestrated, lavish sound that further incorporates organic instrumentation and exemplifies the emotional impact of Cheatham's vocal delivery. The comparisons that both flattered and diminished the uniqueness their debut Metropolitan are no longer relevant, as Grayscale defines a sound exclusive to The Atomica Project.
Grayscale features contributions from longtime collaborator Percy Trayanov (Cylab), additional Rhodes piano by Christopher Randall (Chris Randall, Micronaut), additional drums by Rey Guajardo, and turntable work by Dean Dunakin (Bounte).

The Atomica Project: Gravity (single)
Gravity is the first single from The Atomica Project's sophomore release, Grayscale.
The Atomica Project: Metropolitan
Metropolitan maneuvers effortlessly through genres, incorporating elements of trip hop, orchestral, downtempo, and lo-fi, all the while illustrating a compelling story of loss, affliction, collapse and recovery.
One is the debut album from Chicago native Bounte. Combining a breakbeat and IDM backbone with strong melodic textures and melodies, One is an unique take on the current electronic music scene.
Chris Randall: The Devil His Due
The long-awaited solo album from Chris Randall, former frontman for Sister Machine Gun, pays homage to more traditional American music, while still maintaining the chaotic edginess that Randall is known for.
Callisto marks Chris Randall's fifth genre-spanning sojourn in to the back streets of electronic music under the Micronaut banner. Mostly up-tempo, partially eccentric, and definitely danceable, Callisto is a distilled history of Micronaut in one album.
the most dangerous race: ARC
Thematically, ARC represents the basic chapters of a man's life, at least as far as it has been lived so far by it's narrator. The third EP in a four part series, ARC is the truest embodiment of theMDR's identity thus far. A dramatic blend of emotive songs, visceral live performances and late 70's influenced electronica, this ep actually attemps to trace the arc of life in a mere 6 songs.
the most dangerous race: metallic tongue
metallic tongue is a barrage of electro-ambient feedback, riding on the back of visceral driving bass, drums and electronic percussion.
the most dangerous race: inventing shadows
inventing shadows is a collection of dark dramatic songs that resist the over-arranged, over-thought tendencies of modern alternative music.
Various Artists: komposi003
komposi003 features tracks from Aizome, Amish Rake Fight, The Atomica Project, Bounte, Chris Randall, Graphic, Micronaut, Milkfish, s.sturgis, Scanalyzer and Sister Machine Gun.
