ZOLTAR says: "Your wish is granted" - ATOM SMITH is back with his main man BURKEY and assorted friends for another Electro Swing banger in the ongoing BLUE COVER series 2.0. BRIGHT LIKE HOLLYWOOD is the much anticipated second release from socal native ATOM - one of Los Angeles' hottest #electroswing producers - who, we kid you not, works on the side remixing music for DISNEY, and boasts a uniquely energetic future retro West Coast sound, fusing vintage Swing with modern Bass and Beats.
FLASHIN' LIKE GATSBY, his previous EP, has averaged well over 40,000 monthly listeners on Spotify since it's release in April 2018. BRIGHT LIKE HOLLYWOOD looks set to better this success, nailing the format with another 2 song collaboration with L.A. Rapper BURKEY of VOKAB KOMPANY cult fame on the eponymous swing house title track and the bass heavy STICKUP KID.
The EP also features NOT SORRY CHARLIE with special guest MISS EMMMA that pulls off an original and specially recorded BIG BAND orchestration with contemporary chart scored by Hollywood heavyweight ELLIOT DEUTSCH and to round it all off, a Glitch-Hop cover of the FATS WALLER's piano stomper ALL THAT MEAT AND NO POTATOES.

About ATOM SMITH:
As one half of THE GENTLEMEN CALLERS OF L.A., ATOM developed and produced almost a dozen releases, including multiple projects for film, television, and performance (as you would expect of a Hollywood native), most notably the world renowned MUTAYTOR, a 20 piece traveling tribal electro circus. ATOM has also made the ubiquitous international DJ appearances from Glastonbury to his home-turf Burning Man Festival to Coachella among many others.
His previous EP FLASHIN' LIKE GATSBY mashes up hipster-hop, ghetto funk and electro swing in a distinctly jazzy and uniquely west coast way with more of that Hipster Hop vibe from L.A. rapper BURKEY of VOKAB KOMPANY fame:
