2015 was a brilliant year for me. During the year I discovered new music, new artists, and the one that made the year more special was a new artist called Attlas. To me he was the biggest surprise, and what he did to the music scene was so unique and refreshing, he became an instant hit. The two mixes you can find on his Soundcloud page were listened by thousands of people, more than 100k+ people listened to these wonderful mixes (the ones I’ve reviewed) and I can say in all honesty that I’m probably responsible for most plays. I had to bookmark these sets, and whenever I want to hear them, I just press play and the mood changes completely. The same with his latest mix, this is such a superb set, this is a game changing set.
What he does is unique. Minimalistic music and film bits, that’s the best way to describe what Attlas does. Yes, many artists have used bits in tracks, but not as good as Attlas. The way he does it is so unique, he takes the music to the next level. This mysterious person has the capability to single-handedly change the music industry, and I think you should follow the flow that his music generates. Follow his path, the destination will be heaven, I garantee. I’ve never heard anything like this before in my life, so different and beautiful, his sets are the only sets I’ve heard so far which causes me to cry. And I never cry.
Attlas brings the best out of us. If there’s one name you should follow, it’s his. Many artists are well established, but never unique nor refreshing. Attlas does what he wants to do, and the result is that he will be known in the future as the ‘next best thing to happen to the music scene’. His name will be on a list, a list containing names such as James Brown, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, David Bowie and more. He is the biggest name to grow in the scene right now, and if you can, follow him on everything, Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, etc. Trust me, his name will be known as one of the greatest artists of the 21st century.

Come on, name someone who can create such a beautiful looking tracklist?! Name one artist!?
Attlas/ATTLAS is a king. He’s the master of creating a legacy which will last a lifetime. This is such a superb set, nothing can come close to Attlas’ genuis-ness. How come only he can create this? Is it because he’s a musical God? Is he actually human, or not? Not many artists have blown me away in the last couple of years, not as much as Attlas did. He has this thing, and many might consider him gifted. He is indeed gifted, gifted with the power of creating a new level of depth in music. Movies and music, they blend well in an Attlas set.
The music is good. Not really a huge fan of Bjork’s voice, but in this mix it was suitable. Normally I would deduct stars (rating) but it doesn’t seem right to deduct anything, seeing as this is the best mix of 2016, and more mixes like this one will follow, according to what Attlas wrote underneath the mix on Soundcloud. Please let it be the truth, we need more mixes like the one you are about to listen to.
Best track? The first two. But the one that takes my breath away has got to be Jeremy Olander’s ‘Lunar’. Such a beautiful track, calm and peaceful. Attlas has picked the best tracks to start this wonderful journey through his wonderful music life.
I love Attlas, can you tell? His music is really great, his mixes are out of this world, and they all make me feel good. For once we’ve found an artist who’s unique and fresh, and his name…. is Attlas. Bookmark this mix, share it with your friends, and let yourself go. Let Attlas take you on an inspirational journey you will remember for a very long time.
