ATLiens, a masked dubstep DJ/producer duo originating from Atlanta, Georgia, burst onto the Dance music scene with their popular single "Chief." This track gained widespread attention after Skrillex premiered it at Boiler Room and received support from notable figures like RL Grime, Diplo, and Jack U. The distinctive feature of ATLiens is their alien-like persona, characterized by chrome faces and glowing red eyes, which adds a mysterious allure to their global presence.

Preferring to maintain strict anonymity, ATLiens only respond to "yes-or-no" questions during interviews, refusing to speak verbally. In an interview with their manager, Jonathan Griffin, featured on, he emphasized the group's focus on creating an immersive musical experience for their fans. He stated, "When you attend an ATLiens show, it's all about the music. While ATLiens have a unique personality, the human element remains absent. The priority is on the fans, the music, and the collective energy that distinguishes their shows from others."
Fan reviews:

They threw down! I’ve missed ATLiens several time, I was not about to miss them once more and they did not disappoint! The aliens form the ATL brought me right back to my zen of the bass music!

I was blown away at how good of a show they gave us. I cried when it was over. These guys were exhilarating to see live, not only was their set amazing but I had so much fun seeing them dance around and act a little goofy while at the same time giving one of the best EDM performances I’ve seen. Very interactive with the crowd, they brought such a wonderful energy, I’m not over it.

Didn’t know what to do with myself! This was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to I literally did not know what to do with myself. Forever grateful that I got to experience this.

Out-out-this-world experience!
ATLiens shared the stage with Excision, Ray Volpe, Emorfik, and Jkyl & Hyde at the Moody Center. They continue across the United States and Canada with the last stop at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, California on April 12, 2024.
