Although his identity is no longer a secret, it’s still a mystery as to how exactly mau5trap’s ATTLAS got so darn good and making electronic music. A deal with the devil? A magic spell? We don’t know for sure, but what we do know is that his new single, Tiff’s Theme, off his upcoming third EP, Sin, is another winner.
In contrast with his most recent offering, the tropical-tinged remix of Led Zeppelin’s Ramble On, Tiff’s Theme is a return to the darker, more poignant progressive style for which he first became known. Through a series of growls, unique claps, and airy chord progressions, ATTLAS takes the listener on an intimate-yet-classy journey through the more industrial side of progressive house.
Listen to the full stream up above, and pre-order ATTLAS’ six-track Sin EP, the final act in a trilogy of releases, ahead of its Nov. 20 release date here.
