This Is Tea
Praise for Atarilogic & Alaska Westwind 'These cats know the ledge and are proud to walk it in all their denim leather hipster fatlace glory; street smart prose with subtle pop asides and luminous, brawny beats.' Alex Schreiber, Hype 'A compelling vision of Hip Hop that comprises not only the Brooklyn variety, but incorporates equal parts Rock, Soul and Psychedelia with a healthy dash of utter sonic lunacy.' Jack Vandersauce, The Avant Guard 'A tight blend of original hip hop flavor, funk groove and rock terror, Atarilogic & Alaska Westwind defy the laws of music by bending genres and blowing minds.' Ron Cuerpo, Black Book 'Atarilogic & Alaska Westwind are everything a great musical vacation ought to be: a funky fresh jaunt through hip hop with plenty of layovers in jazz, blues and modern electronica. They are the perfect travelogue for flights of groove.' Artavis Allen, Codebook 'Atarilogic & Alaska Westwind's music is grand without being grandiose; exotic without eccentricity and, overall, a potent mix with all of the intoxicating richness and none of the guilt, bound to go down smooth every time.' Gerald Spinelli, Fine Line 'The difference between Atarilogic & Alaska Westwind and other hip hop crews is as noticeable as the difference between canned vegetables and those straight from the garden. These guys are fresher, crunchier and more actively entertaining to the palate than that generic club DJ.' Vint Valeth, Music Diary 'The first time I saw Atarilogic & Alaska Westwind, Atarilogic was conducting beats in a mechanics outfit, Alaska was across the street rapping into a walkie-talkie and Agent Chant was shooting whiskey from the turntable. What this crew may lack in stage presence they make up for in sheer spectacle.' Ellen Bowes, Midwest Music Journal Praise for 'This Is Tea' 'The enigmatic duo come strong from the gate with this, their first full length, steeped in versatile stylistics and a true-school party ethic that makes this a must have. Chock full of anthemic flavors, this 'Tea' is hot!' Andy Keith - Playlist Weekly 'Speaking of the fabled Midwest Funkzone, producer Atari & MC Alaska present a full platter of heavy beats and solid rhymes to represent Indiana to the world...you will be hooked.' Toph One - XLR8R Magazine 'Warm up to hot beats, sweet lyrics and quenching rhymes with This Is Tea' Tim Brouk - Journal & Courier '...vibrant tracks which bustle with groove and are as conscientious as they are club-banging.' Hip Hop Press 'This hasn't left the CD player...has all types of fresh stylings & is a banger thru & thru.' Scuba Gooding, Sr. - Prhymemates.
