WARNING: I AM DELETING MY BACK CATALOGUE! MUSIC! VIDEOS! EVERYTHING! If you have this stuff you’re cool, otherwise you might wanna download it now because it will be gone shortly.

Explanation for hyperbolic statement follows. 2017 is here. Its the most critical year of my existence so far. It brings a New music project every month all year long. New website. New podcast. New mix series. Basically NEW EVERYTHING with a guarantee of the kind of consistency and quality I’ve been exhibiting since I quietly started dropping a #ONEMINUTEMIX every Friday and a new music project every month earlier this year. I am going all in on making this a HUGE SUCESS. I want to provide the life for my family that they deserve. We want to be able stay in America. To travel. To not struggle. To be happy and free. I want my music to reach the amount of people that deserve to hear it, and it deserves to be heard by – which is MILLIONS AND MILLIONS. I want to play massive stages, clubs, stadiums, festivals. I am good enough. I have worked hard enough, I am ready.

You only get one chance to make a first impression. You, dear reader, are already here, you amazing cutting edge early adopting tastemaking zeitgeist straddling uber cool cultural genius you. Most of the people who are gonna be enjoying my music, performances and DJ sets in the future are’t here yet. So when they get here, I don’t want them to be confused by ten years of learning and experimentation. I want them to hear the PEAK STUFF first. Maybe after some series digging they can unearth that rare, experimental, unpolished stuff you experienced, in all its rawness and honesty. When they’re ready. But to make that right impression, it means In need to nuke 97% of my output to date.

So, with that in mind, I’ve bundled everything I can find that I’ve done together into a handy package that you can download here. It also includes a zip of hours and hours of unreleased music. So go cop that and own HISTORY.
If you can’t afford the whole thing, and you’re missing something in particular, chuck me a message and I’ll hook you up.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for being here until now. What an adventure! With the biggest still to come! What’s coming next terrifies me. I have never been more excited, and I have never been READIER.

I love you. I appreciate you. I am grateful for everything you have bought to my life.
LET’S GO INTO THE FUTURE AND BE GREAT TOGETHER

Sincerely
ATD
