ATTLAS Drops Latest "Blood Work" on Mau5trap [LISTEN]
If you haven't heard of up-and-coming producer ATTLAS, it's not too to late to put this buzz-worthy artist on your radar for 2017.
Earlier this week, ATTLAS released his latest track titled “Blood Work” featuring the mesmerizing vocals of Chelsea Jade. This song mixes sounds from all over the spectrum of electronic music, using brass and synths to create a smooth and chill tone. Although having released lighter and more consumable tracks in the past, on 'Blood Work' ATTLAS has pivoted his production style by layering darker elements of progressive house and spacey techno over driving house beats.
In an interview with Noisey, ATTLAS spoke honestly about his creative process:
"All that matters is creating music that resonates with you. If you do, it will resonate with others".
His distinct style is evident in this new track, and it is sure to make listeners remember his name.
Despite getting his start in EDM as recent as 2014, ATTLAS has already made connections with some of the biggest names in electronic dance music. His partnership with deadmau5 has given him the opportunity to play back to back sets on the North American mau5hax Bus Tour and be added to the Mau5trap roster featuring artists Rezz, Tommy Trash, and Michael Woods.
Under the watchful eye of production-maestro deadmau5, ATTLAS was often speculated to be a side project of the mau5 himself until his identity was revealed to be that of 27-year old Jeff Hartford on Pete Tong's Evolution broadcast on iHeartRadio.
ATTLAS first started gaining popularity with his remixes of popular songs featuring artists such as Tove Lo, Rihanna, XYLO, and Gallant. He then moved on to create albums for himself titled Bloom, Scene, Siren, and Sin. His unique talent gained the attention of many accredited producers, leading him to join Nero, Zed’s Dead, and Alison Wonderland on tour. One of the most impressive features of ATTLAS is that he is not only a DJ/producer, but also a classically trained musician and multi-instrumentalist. His skills translate to the piano, trumpet, guitar, bass, and even the banjo. He uses this talent to mix both classic instrumental sounds with the kicks and synths of electronic dance music to ultimately create the unique style of this DJ we know and love, ATTLAS.
