Pete Tong Reveals ATTLAS’ Identity
Mau5trap newcomer ATTLAS has been a mysterious, identity-less artist since his emergence. While rumors may suggest a possible alias for Deadmau5, Joel Zimmerman quickly dismissed the speculation back when ATTLAS first stormed the scene with “Sabs” for We Are Friends: Volume 3. However, Pete Tong has finally revealed the identity of the producer during the introduction of ATTLAS' Evolution guest mix. Tong says, “there’s been a sneaky suspicion he’s Deadmau5 in disguise. However I can now reveal that he’s a fellow Canadian producer Jeff Hartford.”
Jeff Hartford is clearly a well seasoned DJ-producer, as evident from this guest mix that Tong calls "cinematic," as well as his new EP titled Siren, which marked the label’s most recent hit.

The instrumental synth driven tracks to follow are nothing short of captivating. Want a tip? Listen to the “Overture” first for a taste of whats to come in the EP.
