Glitch Mob can always be counted on when it comes to crafting wild, yet innovative records. With the right collaborators, their aesthetic is brought to new heights—and such is the case with their latest work alongside ZEKE BEATS. “Lazer Vision” is emblematic of both acts’ penchant for blistering low-end numbers, blasting listeners with gritty synth work, clever sound effects, and off-kilter rhythms. The pair raise goosebumps with sinister melodies and harsh drops, resulting in a tune that cuts deep.
The release is the first of a series Glitch Mob announced which sees them teaming with multiple collaborators for a string of year-ending singles. They’ve kept the other names under wraps for now, but based off “Lazer Vision,” fans are in for a treat. Prior to showing off the fruits of their studio labor, the trio were participants in one of 2019’s dominating tours: ALCHEMY, with SLANDER and NGHTMRE.
Seven Lions has proven to be a true chameleon when it comes to his production output. The former Anjunabeats darling creates and performs everything from cutting dubstep records to euphoric trance and future bass. This fall he will embark upon a new sonic journey with Dimibo under psy trance alias, Abraxis. Fans in this niche might already recognize Dimibo, who are a Seattle based psy trance duo and a fixture on Seven Lions’ label, Ophelia Records. The project will be debuted at Dreamstate Southern California.
This announcement comes at the heels of the producer’s recent Alchemy tour announcement, which will see him perform alongside NGHTMRE, The Glitch Mob, and SLANDER at over 19 tour stops across the U.S. This in addition to Abraxis is certainly enough to keep the Seven Lions busy. While it’s clear the new project is performance-heavy, the collaborators have yet to confirm whether or not they’ll be putting out joint releases. For those looking to experience Abraxis live, Dreamstate tickets can be purchased here.
