To say that Led Zeppelin are icons in music would be understating the impact that the English rock band had on the industry at their peak in the 70s and 80s. It’s safe to say that Led Zeppelin has earned their spot in the music industry’s Hall of Fame, ensuring that the task of remixing one of their songs is all the more daunting for producers. If there was any producer fitting to try their hand at remixing Zeppelin, it would be ATTLAS, the enigmatic mau5trap artist who Pete Tong recently revealed as Canadian producer, Jeff Hartford.
Armed with a propensity for crafting drawn out and beautiful, motion picture-esque soundscapes, ATTLAS tackles Zeppelin’s “Ramble On” with full force, turning the bluesy rock production into a beautiful piece of electronic textures and sound design. Robert Plant’s distinguished vocals guide the track through dreamy, arpeggiated synth work, as ATTLAS replaces the electrifying guitar riff in favor of subtle piano chords and light snare work that places the emphasis on creating a beautiful, nostalgic vibe.
