ATTLAS Premieres 'Scene' EP Opener 'Batch': Exclusive
deadmau5's protégé is ready for his second close-up.
Enigmatic producer ATTLAS -- revealed by Pete Tong to be Canadian producer Jeff Hartford -- will drop his sophomore Scene EP on Friday (Aug. 7) via his mentor's mau5trap label.
However, fans can now listen to Scene's contemplative opener "Batch" -- featuring vocals by The Intergalatix’s Kristian Attard -- exclusively on Billboard:
Drawing inspiration from the silver-screen, it's clear that the young artist views Scene as the narrative sequel to his debut Siren EP -- and this thoughtful and melodic number as its cinematic opening act.
"'Batch' holds our hand as we re-enter the story begun by Siren," says Hartford. "It is warm but distant, full of introspection. Falling in love but lying to yourself about it, pretending you don't care until you've realized you've really screwed something up...that's what it’s reminding you of."
ATTLAS' Scene EP will be available through mau5trap on Aug. 7, and can be pre-ordered here.
