We made “Atonia” with the thought of making a song which you could fall asleep to – very slow, dreamy, slightly transcending (with a vibe which feels like falling into the deep blue) & not too much going on as well as no harsh frequencies/noises.

With almost half a million monthly Spotify listeners – combined – Claptu and Beatmund are no newbies on the beat scene and gradually grow their audiences while proving their skills and unique approach to beat production.

The two of them have worked with numerous other producers, climbing the highs of the streaming platforms: Claptu’s most listened track “Asura” (with Rudi Montaire) has more than 700 000 streams, while Beatmund Noise’s track “Luar” (in collaboration with colours in the dark) has reached almost 2 million streams on Spotify. Apart from that, the producers’ music can be found in 100 Spotify playlists altogether, with Beatmund being featured on Jazz Vibes and Bedtime Beats Apple Music playlists.

The Austrian producers have worked together several times in the past, developing and upgrading their collaborative process. In their latest track, released by Stereofox Records, they join forces (and guitars) to offer a track, which will make you feel lighter and calmer, right before bedtime.
“Atonia” is a serene composition, which allows the listener to slowly slide into the realm of dreams and wholesome relaxation. An elegant lofi instrumental of lullaby nature, the track is based on the equilibrium of carefully selected elements, the combination of which brings comfort and relief to the listener.

Claptu and Beatmund Noise wanted to make a song which one could fall asleep to. Hence the track title “Atonia”, which has Greek roots and refers to the extremely relaxed state of muscles while sleeping. Very slow, dreamy and slightly transcending, the track is making any thoughts melt away, together with the feelings of uneasiness one might have. The soft drums and soothing guitar licks create the perfect sonic panorama, which is gently surrounding the listener from the distance, while he’s falling into the deep blue.

The producers’ music collaboration process benefits from the opportunity to work on their projects together in real life. Here is what Claptu shares about “Atonia”:

“At first, Beatmund sent some stems – they provided the vibe but kept everything very open for me to create the harmonies. What I love about working with Beatmund is since he is no actual musician he would record his instruments (in this case: guitar) in a totally different manner from that of a taught musician and also create harmonies in a kind of different way, because he’s not at all following any kind of musical scheme or theory. This makes his productions very unique like I felt it to be in this song as well. I also tend to go with feeling rather than the little theoretical knowledge I have – so I put some guitar and Rhodes chords on top of his stems to create the harmony. Since we always meet up to finish our ideas together or record the final ideas, we were trying to record the guitars in a new way and it turned out to be really cool.”
