    About
    Back with more heat from Paris, @Cosmonostro presents Fragments, a look inside the musical mind of @Kid Atlaas – one of Europe’s most promising up-and-coming beatsmiths who’s synth-heavy refix of Amerie’s modern classic ‘One Thing’ (included here as a bonus track) blew the internet apart when it was unleashed a few months back.
    The scope of this record is outstanding, from piano chops that’ll pull at your heartstrings to subs that’ll expose your most disgusted screwface, interspersed with interludes you’ll want to last for days.
    Opening with the warm crackly tones of dusty wax, ‘Winter Is Coming’ sets a laidback & blunted mood that defines the Kid Atlaas sound. Otherworldly voices drift in and out throughout the EP, most notable on ‘We Shall Overcome’ with a certain famous speech by a certain civil rights figure demonstrating that conscious hip hop with its positive morality is far from dead. The epic closer ‘Make Love In Outer Space’ opens with blissed out synthwork, blasting off into the ruffest drum beat you’re likely to hear this side of the stratosphere before gently easing you back down to earth, bewildered and ready to go right back for more.
    This is one of those rare records that you’ll have on loop without it ever sounding stale, with each listen more rewarding than the last.

    Press
    "If elegance in hip-hop instrumentation was ever lost, Cosmonostro producer Kid Atlaas found it w/ Winter Is Coming." @hillydilly.com
    "We’ve also got the bonus track, a beefier remix of Amerie’s “One Thing” full of new instrumentation and overall unique production. We simply can’t wait to hear the rest of the album." -@okayfuture
    "The ethereal composition perfectly captures the atmosphere of bleak and dreary winter day. If 'Winter is Coming' is any indication, listeners are in for a treat with the other seven songs on Fragments" -@The 405
