His ambitious, upbeat remix does justice to Robert Plant and the Zeppelin original.

Since the stellar Sirens EP, ATTLAS must have felt a lot of pressure to succeed it with an even bigger record.

Instead of succumbing to that pressure by trotting out a similar-sounding follow-up, he steps up to the challenge by making the ballsy move of remixing Led Zeppelin's "Ramble On". An inadvisable decision from almost any perspective, ATTLAS makes it work without ruining the original track; in fact, he eschews its instrumentation in favor of his own, retaining mostly Robert Plant's exuberant vocals.

ATTLAS, who calls Zeppelin "the greatest band that ever lived", will never replace the original of course, but has made a valiant companion to live alongside it that can bring Zeppelin into a modern musical context.
