The ATif releases “Half Past Death”(Horror Themes) with the lead single “Soul Hacker” just in time for Halloween
The ATif believes in resonating with a niche. As a dedicated MJ Rock Tribute Artist- The @if garnered worldwide attention by his full-length MJ Rock Tribute Compilations. He unwrapped the Magical Jackson aura beyond the pop genre- he understood the depth of Michael’s compositions and acquired them with classic rock production gloss. Spreading a new essence and embarking on the vibe that Jackson once encapsulated. His admiration for Freddie Mercury, The Doors and Guns n Roses made him a real disciple of the classic rock era- where music could stand alone on its own without video and gimmickry. His songwriting is about untouched themes and groovy pieces- enabling the range, variety, and depth of his vocal skills beyond frequently fusing the nuances of rap. Feel the pulse of originality along with intuitive compositions that push the envelope- both in stylistic and technical terms. There is a swagger of joy with an occasional touch of darkness- angry, sentimental and even comic.
