Having lived his entire life in the ever-increasing bulge that we call Atlanta (we know this cause his mom was once a Loafer), DJ DREW VAN ATTEN knows controlled mess, which could help explain his affinity for dropping scuffed, skuzzy tech- and electro-house. Around these parts, industrial and industrious mutation is a way of life iconic buildings leap up overnight. Same goes for Van Attens turntable trajectory. Its almost like one minute hes a fist in the crowd, and next thing, hes got the crowds in his fist on all the haute bills opening for the likes of Damian Lazarus, Uffie and other Cleaning Up the Dirty South events. It all adds up to a metallic-meets-melody, bleepin good time. Exhibiting a savvy sense of selection, Van Atten is hopefully an ear to stay.
