L.A. based Tim Atlas hit the ground running with the release of his new single “Dizzy” and a highly successful release show at The Satellite in Los Angeles. “Dizzy” has garnered attention from Zane Lowe, KCRW, Earmilk, and a number of tastemakers alike. Atlas creates R&B-infused indie pop, delivering a soundtrack for the soul. The talented artist is back with a remix of “Dizzy” with talented producer Joe Hertz.
Hertz says of the collaboration, “Really excited about Tim’s project, I got to work with him while he was over in the UK…When I heard ‘Dizzy’ I was really into the blend of synth pop dreaminess with the elements of funk. I always try to preserve the song as much as possible but to flip it into something that could be played later at night in a high energy set.”
Atlas explains, “‘Dizzy’ is about confusion in a relationship, where there are aspects you love to hate and hate to love. But despite everything, you’re still down for it. Dizzy is a track for everyone who has had a relationship that makes your head spin… but 100% worth it.” On his collaboration with Joe Hertz he adds, “He basically turned the dance knob to 11.”
Earmilk writes, “The beauty of this song is his control of dynamics as instrumentation drops in and out to make way for the wafting wavy vocals asking ‘can you feel what’s in the air?’ Tim Atlas and ‘Dizzy’ are reminiscent of early 1980s Prince a la the tight 30 minute funk / disco jam sesh that is ‘Dirty Mind’ but most specifically reminds of ‘Uptown.'”
Danceable yet laid-back, “Dizzy” is a feeling we’ve all felt before. Diving into the anxieties of a relationship, Atlas relays his personal experience as he sings, “we go back & forth like a swing-set”. Smooth vocals lay atop this 80’s inspired track, with a disco-infused soundscape that’s both dreamy and pop-leaning at the same time.
