Avoure returns to Lane 8’s This Never Happened for some deep house delight, with his ‘U’ EPAvoure U 1

Ukrainian deep house dynamo, Avoure, has rendezvoused with This Never Happened for his three-pronged debut EP, U.

Avoure made his advantageous emergence earlier this year alongside the This Never Happened life-giver himself, Lane 8, for their effervescent collaborative single, “Let Me.” U, it appears, has been a long while in the making–seeing as Lane 8 has repeatedly spliced offerings from the project into his recent seasonal mixes, as he has done to bolster a sundry of other burgeoning label talent as of late, most notably, with Khåen.

succeeds in spanning the fluid, chugging waters of its lead single, as well as the precipitous ripples and skittering hi-hats of “Aura.” To traverse the EP is to allow its deep blue grooves and subtle instrumentals–like the moody guitar interlude mid-way through “Floyd”–to penetrate the pores and fill the earbuds with a languorous listen that happens so naturally, the listener must actively remind themselves to observe the unfettered atmosphere around them.

The temperately transcendent EP should be filed appreciatively under “Easy listening for house heads.”

Following the release of his most recent single with Avoure, “Let Me,” and his BBC Essential Mix debut, Root To Branch Vol. 2 shifts Lane 8’s role from producer to curator, as the melodic house heavyweight presents a series of selections from the fellow artists who’ve served as his musical muses of late.

Entities from Lane 8’s This Never Happened label, Avoure, Emanour, and Solanca all make appearances on the six-track second volume of his fan-favorite compilation, a formidable followup to the first installment in the developing Root To Branch family.

San Fransisco-based producer Lane 8 has been a Dancing Astronaut favorite ever since he was first spotlighted by Above & Beyond‘s Anjunadeep label. After delivering on his hotly-anticipated sophomore album, Little By Little, earlier this year, the releases keep pouring in.

Now Daniel Goldstein, the multi-talented musician behind the Lane 8 moniker, has teamed up with unknown talent Avoure for a mellow composition, out on the former’s This Never Happened  imprint. The track flows along in pursuit of it’s title, “Let Me,” in which listeners are taken a gradual journey of self-discovery and yearning for what’s around the next bend. As each new element layers gently onto the next, blending into a beautiful symphonic cacophony, the two artists have their audience begging to let them have their release.
