Spate Magazine Sonicbids Pick: Dallas Atoms

So tell us a little about you.

Well first and foremost thank you for reaching out to us and seeing the work we've been putting in. About us and our movement, we're a two man hip-hop duo, Dallas Atoms, from New York, specifically representing The Bronx. We're actually one part of a larger Bronx movement filled with other rappers, producers, DJs, painters and photographers. Coming from NY, especially The Bronx, shows and opportunities were hard pressed to come by. Instead of trying to fit into another scene or trying to make fake friends just for some recognition, we all came together and created our own scene and movement. Now we have other upcoming artists and established artists from other boroughs reaching out to us to be a part of our movement.

What projects are you currently working on?

Individually, NeCo is finished and gearing up for his solo debut, Curiosity, which will be dropping May 11th. Vega is currently working on his solo tape, Be Kind Rewind, which is scheduled for a late 2014 drop. But together we're working and gearing up for our second project, Timeless. Its going to feature several underground artists out of the metro area and has production from Kelly Portis, Ado The God, Ewonee, Canis Major and several more. Since March of 2013 we've been doing shows and performing material off of our EP, "38th & 8th", which was fully produced by Apollo Brown. The main focus has been expanding our brand and gathering new consumers to our product. We've done over 50 shows in less than a year and got flown out to Texas to perform at SXSW 14'. We feel real good leading up to Timeless and we've been able to secure a great base following closer too home but as well develop relationships and connections through our SXSW trip and dealing with out of state blog sites and magazines.

With so much competition how do you stay motivated to keep doing music?

Because we love it. If we were doing this for any other reason, we most likely would've called it quits and went down a safer, guaranteed route. But when you do something cause you love it, you don't think logically, you always find a way to make it work and you find a way to make your dream a reality. We're at a point in our careers where we can't be focused on other artists and their moves. We have tunnel vision, and we're focused on the people with their eyes on us.

Where do you see yourself in 3 years?

In 2017 we definitely see ourselves headlining our own tour, with a grassroot fan base. Success is the only option for us, but at the same time everything for us is and has been organic. From our name, our songs, concepts, and our stage presence, everything is organic. So we expect fans to feel that and to grow with us.

Do you have any up and coming events you would like to plug?

We have our own live show called Buried In The Boogie. We're gearing up to reinvigorate that event and continue to make that bigger. Other than our own event, we have shows all throughout May and June, and a big event on 4/20.
