ATTLAS - Storyline: Vol. 2 (2016)

If there’s one artist I’ve been looking out for, it’s ATTLAS. And yet I’ve completely forgotten about him. Am I a fan? Yes. His previous mixes were so amazing, they blew my mind away, and I have listened to them at least once a week. So the amount of plays on Soundcloud can mostly be credited to me. But I haven’t seen his latest mix, which was released last year in December! How stupid am I? I’m so fascinated about his previous mixes, and I’ve missed this one completely. That’s a shame. Don’t know why I decided to go to his Soundcloud page today at work, but I was in search for something calm and relaxing, and yes, there was a brand new mix! Storyline Volume 2! Volume 1 was breathtakingly beautiful, so would 2 be as good, or even better?

Better. This man combines music with films, and the combination is just astonishing! He takes your breathe away. I don’t know what his secret formula is, but it’s worth its value in gold! This is valuable, a commodity that many artists would like to have, but not one has. It’s so darn good, it becomes emotional, even after hearing it for the first time. He starts off with an amazing intro, and the music just flows through your speakers towards you. Instead of being hit with angry fists in your face, this feels like someone’s hugging you constantly, protecting you from the angry side of life. That’s how I feel during an ATTLAS mix. Embraced by his mix, and it won’t let me go.

Another mix added to my ‘favourites’. And will at least have 10k plays by me. Just me. This is so addictive.

I don’t have a clue who 85% of these artists are, but for once I’m not bothered about the names. The music means more to me, and does the most for me. And boy, this is really a mix we’ve been waiting for.

70k+ listeners so far, and yet no one I know recognizing his name. He’s to me a truly gifted and talented DJ and producer. Someone who’s capable of touching hearts without any effort. The combination of music and films just works astonishingly good, and the way he does it, I haven’t seen before. Yes, people make music with bits from films in it, but the way ATTLAS does it, it’s scary. How does he do that? How does he make it work?

I don’t know which films these bits are from, and I don’t care. ATTLAS, you are a hero to me. From the first to the last second you take me on a ride throughout musical heaven, and the feeling it generates can not be topped by anything else. I like many styles, and most of the times I listen to harder, rougher and tougher music, but ATTLAS’ mixes are just untouchable. They make me loose myself. I feel more human.

Can’t pick a favourite, because it’s the combination that you need to think of, and in my case judge. The whole mix, it’s pure heaven. ATTLAS must have been sent from heaven, because only angels can make a mix work like he does.

ATTLAS, thank you. I don’t need drugs or alcohol to get me high. Your mix does that without despair. Are you an angel?
