Lane 8 delivers poised second single, ‘Sunday Song’ from impending LP

Lane 8 delivers poised second single, ‘Sunday Song’ from impending LPLane 8 Crssd Fest Michael Drummond 1

The grace of a gradual sonic build has never been lost on Lane 8, as “Sunday Song” ethereally elucidates. The second single from the This Never Happened label head’s incoming LP, Brightest Lights, “Sunday Song” starts with a vocal chop weaved among an ambient collection of chords. The effortless harmony of these elements sharpens in its focus as they slowly rise in synchronicity, giving lift to the splendorous number.

Synths arch in a limber manner, maintaining a metallically toned presence in the fluid body of the production. The sequel to the POLIÇA-assisted title track that Lane 8 shared on September 24, “Sunday Song” ebbs and flows for a serene four and a half minutes.

As sure as Brightest Lights looms on the horizon, slices of the LP’s sound will follow in the titular fashion of Lane 8’s debut album: little by little. Brightest Lights will arrive via This Never Happened on January 10, 2020.

Lane 8 and POLIÇA reconvene on languorous new number, ‘Brightest Lights’

Lane 8 and POLIÇA reconvene on languorous new number, ‘Brightest Lights’Lane 8 George Fitzgerald Burns Remies

With her vaporous alto vocals, POLIÇA blows a breathy vocal lifeblood into Lane 8‘s latest one-track endeavor, “Brightest Lights.” Avid Lane 8 listeners are acquainted with the delicate fluidity of POLIÇA’s voice, with the singer having lent her vocal talents to 2017’s “No Captain,” a single that drove Lane 8’s prevalence in masterful melodic dance circles that year.

As with “No Captain,” POLIÇA’s contribution strikes a temperate balance with the subtle, minimalist beauty of the record’s arrangement. “Brightest Lights” is mellow and clean in its tone; it pours forth at the viscous, unencumbered pace classic of a Lane 8 production as it simultaneously beckons towards an indie-electronic aural approach. With “Brightest Lights,” Lane 8 offers streamers two listening options: the near seven-minute original and a comparatively abridged edit.

“Brightest Lights” is the eponymous first offering from Lane 8’s next album, slated to release via This Never Happened on January 10, 2020. The project is flanked by an international, tour of the same name, which will kick off in Boston January 31. Tickets will go on sale on September 27 at 10 am local time, and can be purchased here.

Better than pumpkin spice lattes: Lane 8 shares new fall mixtape

Better than pumpkin spice lattes: Lane 8 shares new fall mixtapeFall Mitape

The enduring Lane 8 has nonchalantly as always dropped off this year’s fall arm of his seasonal mixtape series this afternoon. The California native is ahead of the game as per usual, setting September’s tonal score just before the leaves begin to change colors.

Over its three-hour playtime, the tour de force allows the seminal progressive house producer the chance to highlight unreleased material of his own, such as a potential Bon Iver remix to kick things off, as well as a litany of burgeoning talent from his label, This Never Happened.

What’s great about the chunkier length of these seasonal mixes though, is that it let fans hear Lane 8 in his soulful, melodic zone, as he spins weather-appropriate licks like Aiiso’s “Programmer” or Martin Roth‘s “Sugarbites,” while also giving them the chance to experience more eclectic sounds, like Solomun‘s remix of Jon Hopkin‘s “Emerald Rush” and Polo & Pan’s lucid and worldly “Gengis,” both of which fall towards the grittier, brisker (if you will) outer edges of Lane 8’s sonic spectrum.

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKEDRukes III

While HOLY SHIP! won’t be setting sail in 2020, it’ll sure still be getting down. The revered HARD Events maritime festival will anchor itself in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana next year, January 22-26 with a whole new name: HOLY SHIP! WRECKED.

Casting a wide and prominent net, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED has secured Diplo, Lane 8, Claude VonStroke, and Madeon to top its astounding 2020 roster, while Chris Lake, NGHTMRE & Slander, and Jai Wolf comprise what one could hardly call an undercard. Distinguished names from across the house and bass-abundant spectrum speckle the robust roster, from 12th Planet to TOKiMONSTA, Whethan to What So Not, the agenda seems to extend something irrefutable for every electronic taste preference. Up-and-coming contenders like Dom Dolla, Sonny Fodera, and ODESZA-championed MEMBA offer the lineup a fresh-faced appeal as well.

Not only is the lineup set to be one of the most in-depth throughout the HOLY SHIP! timeline, but the shift in format will offer #Shipfam an event that is both excitingly new and refreshingly familiar. Cloud 9 Adventures,the lead company behind the ship experience, has been producing events in concert with the Punta Cana resort for many years already and will bring that expertise to HOLY SHIP! WRECKED .

Just as on HOLY SHIP!, the resort will only be open to attendees throughout the festival. Seasoned Shipfam will still receive their robes as well as their OG party as fans and artists live together for a weekend in paradise:

We are shipfam for life, so we couldn’t miss out on this! – Gorgon City

Time to start the search for buried treasure. We be shipwrecked this year me maties! – Claude VonStroke  

When it comes time for the artists to perform, there will be nine different areas for music spread throughout the resort. With the increased amount of space, the overall production will be at a much higher level and each area will maintain a specific sonic identity. From daily pool parties to a 1,000 person-capacity club to a sunrise set on the beach, artists will be spinning multiple sets in a variety of environments to satisfy the astute tastes of Shipfam.

Plus, the extensive amenities provided both on-site and in the immediate area will allow for a much broader range of artist involved activities which will be announced soon.

Attendees of HOLY SHIP! WRECKED will have 24-hour access to the resort’s private beach. Every room includes its own balcony, hot tub, free Wi-Fi, and is roughly three times the size of rooms on the boat. There are nine restaurants around the resort offering everything from sushi to pizza, and just like on ship, food and drinks (including alcohol) are all-inclusive.

In terms of recreation outside of music, there is mini-golf, a lazy river, a waterslide, and much more on property. For an extra charge, attendees can take their experience to the next level with a full 18-hole golf course, excursions on dune buggies and ATV’s, a 65,000 square-foot spa, scuba diving, and various other activities that only a world-class island resort can offer.

Pre-sale for HOLY SHIP! WRECKED starts next Monday, July 29, and tickets officially go on sale Wednesday, July 31 at 11 am PT, available here, along with general festival information.

NMF Roundup: Skrillex and TroyBoi become ‘WARLORDZ,’ The Bloody Beetroots reveal new EP + moreSkrille Troyboi

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

Skrillex has joined forces with TroyBoi to craft a hefty collaboration, “WARLORDZ,” and The Bloody Beetroots has finally revealed his full five-track Heavy EP.

Kove brings his shadowy style of drum ‘n’ bass to “Bearclaw,” and Lane 8 and Yotto have created a dreamy collaboration, “I / Y.” Armin van Buuren and Benno de Goeij make an appearance as GAIA, delivering the extensive Moons of Jupiter compilation. 3LAU and Bright Lights team up once again on “Down for Life,” and Matroda brings his signature thumping bass to “The One.” Darren Styles keeps happy hardcore alive with “Never Let Me Down,” and Vintage & Morelli is in “Bloom” on his newest release. Kraysh showcases his unique sound on “Void,” and Billy Kenny takes on Kyle Watson and Kylah Jasmine’s “You Boy.”

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.

Lane 8 and Yotto lift spirits on new collaboration, ‘I/Y’

Lane 8 and Yotto lift spirits on new collaboration, ‘I/Y’Lane 8 George Fitzgerald Burns Remies

Anjunadeep label-mates Lane 8 and Yotto have joined forces for the first time on a blissfully progressive collaboration, “I/Y.”

Released on Lane 8’s This Never Happened, the new track follows a busy run for both deep house heavyweights, with Lane 8 recently dropping his seasonal summer mixtape series and Yotto coming off a massive Hyperfall tour and releasing a string of new music, including his Anjunadeep 10 track “Nothing Like You” with SØNIN and a Hyperfall remix package. Both will be at Anjunadeep presents: Explorations festival; Yotto is slated for Anjunadeep Open Air dates later this summer and Lane 8 will continue playing dates for his This Never Happened show.

The track opens with light orchestral strings, quickly introducing Lane 8’s distinctive plucky synths and a rhythmic bass that establishes energy before it shutters out to ambient strings again. Playing with careful layers and delicate textures, the track slowly crescendos into a momentous release, accompanied by a finally-realized drum-line before passing ephemerally and closing out with mellow chords.

By withholding certain track elements and simultaneously building and deconstructing layers, Lane 8 and Yotto showcase their ability to craft euphoria in a manner that only those with an innate understanding of progressive storytelling can.
