Black Atlass specializes in a shadowy but tension-filled form of alternative R&B. Known most for "Sacrifice," a duet with Jessie Reyez, the singer, songwriter, and producer has a handful of EPs and albums to his credit, ranging from Young Bloods (2014) to Dream Awake (2020).
Montreal native Alex Fleming debuted as Black Atlass on the Fool's Gold label in 2013 with "Paris," a single that hinted at his range by featuring an acoustic piano version along with the heavily processed original electronic mix. A six-track EP entitled Young Bloods followed in 2014. He appeared on Action Bronson's Top Ten album Mr. Wonderful in 2015, and issued his first full-length, Haunted Paradise, in 2016. Fleming signed with the Weeknd's Republic-supported XO label in 2018. That year, he appeared on the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack with his and Jessie Reyez's "Sacrifice" -- a track that quickly racked up streams in the tens of millions -- and issued the Pain & Pleasure EP. Fleming made further refinements to his sound with the 2020 album Dream Awake. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
