The four original members of ATI combine with working musicians to create a high energy, hip-hop/funk sound. Live instruments, two MC's, a singer, and a DJ make ATI's sound unique and their live shows a straight up party! The lyrics are well crafted, poetic and battle worthy. D.Insane and Big Doos can bust flows that curl toes and reach souls. The funk heavy guitars (CT) and keyboards keep you in a trance while the drums and bass make your azz dance. DJ Sun adds just the right touch with his mind scrambling scratches that make the crowd get up. Above the Influence is a breath of fresh air in a world where mainstream hip-hop polutes our ears.
