Meet Nathan Hayes, aka Atlantic Connection. He's an LA based producer, DJ, engineer and record label owner that has been hustling in the dance music scene for over a decade now, pushing himself to the forefront with his own signature style of soul-flavored bass music. He's got an impressive discography and a long list of TV and film credits, but it’s his new EP, Love Architect—dropping June 19th and on his own Atlantic Connection Music imprint—that's really got our attention.
Satisfyingly similar to the sounds of SBTRKT, MJ Cole, and Flying Lotus, these 13 tracks of deep and soulful electronic music feature vocal collaborations with singer-songwriters like MC Tali and Sopheye. Love Architect is a feel-good album that's perfect for summer sunrises and proper pool parties, so get your Ray Bans ready.
“The inspiration for this album came from my appreciation for neo-retro sci fi, classic psychedelic culture, and it’s current renaissance in our generation," Atlantic Connection told Complex. "My intention was the creation of something memorable, absent of hyper stimulation but still stimulating."
”Love Architect is one of the smoothest albums I've heard in a long time," says DJ Craze, the producer and three-time DMC champion. "It's an audio orgasm from beginning to end. There's all kinds of flavors for whatever genre you're into but it all fits together perfect. Stand-out tracks for me are ‘It's Me, It's You,’ ‘She's Not From Venus’ (my favorite of the whole album) and the moombah joint ‘My Love.’" Check out a few tracks premiering exclusively for Complex:
