“Meet our hero: Mighty Atlas. The man not a myth. Born and bred on the outskirts of planet earth. A man with no limits or boundaries. A Hulk standing on shoulders of giants. Known to dip, dive and socialize. An open society is all he asks for. He’s eating ngonis, Junos and saxophones for breakfast. Re-grets the fact he never met Henri Matisse, Yusef Lateef and Luke Skywalker. He’s a raging Juggernaut, sprinkling fairy dust on unsuspecting passengers. A man of contrast… So, as music can only be understood backwards and must be made forwards, let’s take a look in the used future!”

Dutch recordlabel Fremdtunes presents the self-titled debut-album by Mighty Atlas, out on October 24 2016. The album is a true adventure in cut-and-paste music, combing sounds from all corners of the world and from different times and ages. Steady guided by key conductors Neels Smeekens en Rogier van Hout and firmly assisted by Wiboud Burkens and Baba Sissoko amongst others.
