Berkeley, California based electronic producer Jake Atlas, aka Thriftworks, offers up his own fresh, outsider style weaving eclectic samples and explosive modern bass that takes the art of beat-crafting to new heights. Garnering much praise from fans and critics alike, his latest release, ‘Rainmaker,’ is quickly becoming known as one of the finest electronic albums of 2012. The album’s throbbing, deep low-end and wall to wall synths seem to channel something ancient and mysterious, offering up an intoxicating musical high. These sounds activate the senses, enrapture the mind, move the body and leave audiences begging for more.
