LA based electronic production team AT-ATs On The Beach (ATATOTB) are releasing their debut EP which aims to escape the electronic music cliché, whilst infusing dance beats and heavy bass lines. Maintaining a unique approach to the process of music creation, ATATOTB delivers a new experimental style that reflects their ambition and experimentation as artists. Featuring remixes of Elton John, Rolling Stones, Eagles and original mixes, the debut EP sets the group apart from the rest.
Previously working under the name of ‘InFiction’, they focused on creating original electronic music which took inspiration from their backgrounds as film editors and producers. In the past, they have written scores for films such as Black Swan, The Thing, The Last Exorcism and Wrath of the Titans and are known for their edgy theatrical remixes and melodies crafted specifically for the downtempo, chill community.
With ATATOTB, a new era of downtempo house has landed in the world of electronic music. This experimental mix of theatrical themes, rhythmic beats and other instrumentation are a few things that make this innovative group stand out from the crowd.

Young, but super-talented singer-songwriter Jodie H. Dunn has transformed her emotional ballad ‘I Belong In Hell’ into an expertly crafted dark pop track with the help of producer Andy Whitmore at Greystoke studios.
Jodie is on her way up now that she has produced her first professionally recorded track, but it hasn’t always been easy for her. She signed to an unknown label who ended up giving her big issues; they even tried to fine her family over a contract dispute. At a young age, you can see how this might have put Jodie off making music, but she has remained resolute, even through tougher challenges.
During her school years, Jodie was subjected to severe cases of bullying which escalated so seriously, she was forced to move schools during her exams. In lieu of this, songwriting has always acted as a release for Jodie. From a young age she would sing in the garden and the playground, then evolving her passion as she got older towards creating her own compositions.
However, the bullying then developed onto social media, giving Jodie no real escape. After studying at the Academy of Music and Sound, music became Jodie’s diary whereby she expressed her emotions via her lyrics. Her songs have progressively got more meaningful, leading to ‘I Belong In Hell’ based on the idea of someone controlling you at your lowest point.
‘I Belong In Hell’ was written and performed by Jodie H Dunn and produced by Andy Whitmore, who has worked with major names such as Elton John, Peter Andre and Danni Minogue.
