ATTLAS shares, “After grinding out a very personal ‘winter album’, it was a welcome bit of friendship and sunshine to collaborate on such an uplifting, warm-day kind of record. An easy and comfortable musical overlap that’s a combination of our respective creative strengths and outlooks.”
Mango adds, “I simply feel Jeff and I made a perfect team, we managed to showcase the best of our trademark sounds, while keeping a perfect balance between deep and melodic progressive sounds.”

Over the course of the past four years, ATTLAS has become one of progressive house’s most celebrated artists. Canadian musician Jeff Hartford’s enthusiasm for music began at a young age, he grew up playing in bands and learning instruments like piano, trumpet, and guitar. His immersion in songwriting continued to grow when he attended university, and he interned for a composer after completing his courses. It was during this time that he started applying the techniques he’d learned in the studio to electronic music and began sending his completed works to deadmau5’s Mau5trap label. The label initially signed a few tracks and then ATTLAS as an artist, and Hartford released three EPs in 2015 via the Canadian imprint. In the years since then, he’s delivered singles, EPs, and remixes – all showcasing the textured, introspective sound he’s spent years cultivating. 2019 brought exciting new developments to the ATTLAS journey, including a new installment of his lauded Storyline series and a debut album. The album “synthesized all the experiences and wandering paths that ATTLAS walks,” according to Hartford, bringing together heavier sounds and the emotive melodies he’s built his musical brand on. 2020 proved difficult for everyone; Hartford included who was forced to cancel his ‘Lavender God Tour’, named for his debut album his. Rather than focusing on the missed opportunities, Jeff has taken this year to dive even deeper into his musical craft his. After a few one off releases and several remixes, including a captivating melodic single “The Night Air Was Cool”, Jeff released his second album at the top of November. The latest album, titled ‘Out Here With You’, encompasses the shift in the music industry and the way we’re digesting music without live touring. Rawer and more intimate than ever before, ‘Out Here With You’is Jeff ‘s way of showing his fans his and the world that we were not alone during this troubling time and that we ‘re all trying to navigate the state of the current world together. 2021 brought new heights to Jeff’s career, most notably a Juno nomination for Best Electronic album for his inaugural ‘Lavender God’. Riding off the high of this great honor, Jeff got back on the road touring and dropped his 3rd album later that year on Mau5trap. 2022 lead to another album and another Juno nomination in the same category for his lockdown-inspired album ‘Out Here With You’. With more music and more touring on the way, ATTLAS is a project to keep your eye on.
