Seven Lions and Crystal Skies coalesce on ‘Sojourn’

Seven Lions‘ most recent release recruits Crystal Skies for a collaboration that has long been a staple of Seven Lions’ live sets: “Sojourn.” The melodic joint product is out now via Seven Lions’ own imprint, Ophelia Records, which has previously hosted several Crystal Skies productions in the past, like “Carbon” and “Never Change.” Streaming the track proves an experiential endeavor for the listener, as Seven Lions and Crystal Skies guide the listener through a lush cacophony of high energy synths, which comprise the single’s opening.

The bed of synths mounts with upbeat optimism, to develop into a spirited drop that unexpectedly plunges deeper, to permit growling dubstep to enter the musical picture. Dubstep, however, is not the sole subgenre that Seven Lions and Crystal Skies engage in “Sojourn.” The sonic progression of “Sojourn” takes a psytrance turn before gently fading out, in what is a blissfully soft landing for the animated showing.

DJ duo Crystal Skies, comprised of Britian Holcomb and Aaron Dawson, have made their debut on Seven LionsOphelia Records with the release of the single “Never Change,” and the B Side, “Carbon.”

“Never Change” opens with sultry vocals featuring Gallie Fisher. The track seamlessly emulates Seven Lions’ signature style with its melodic bass breaks juxtaposed with ethereal vocals. The track finds a way to stand out amidst the clutter of what is now an overdone “melodic bass” category, thanks to a catchy spark that keeps the tune in the listener’s head far after the song’s conclusion.

Their second release, which has come out alongside “Never Change,” is much darker in nature and features pulsing dubstep notes and a monstrous undertone that rises and falls as the song progresses.

Crystal Skies have proven they are a duo to take note of, and with a strong start on Ophelia Records, there will likely only be more to expect from the artists in the year to come.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 50

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 50Deters Beat Lab@0.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


Serbian trance and progressive producer Vintage & Morelli doesn’t often dip his toes into drum & bass, but when he does, the product is unparalleled. “Beyond the Horizon,” part one of a two-track EP that just came out via Silk Music, exudes tranquil melodies that the producer juxtaposes brilliantly with track’s swift drum & bass pattern. He wastes no time, building a mystical aura from the first few seconds of the song. It’s simultaneously calming and invigorating and leads perfectly into the EP’s second track, “Autumn.”


For their latest original, A R I Z O N A take a throwback alt-rock approach. The Jersey trio dig deep into the ’80s for “What She Wants,” and the result is stunning. Singer Zach’s voice shines in this song as he exhibits an impressive range, switching seamlessly from the verses’ deeper tones to delicate crooning in the bridge to a powerful chorus. “What She Wants” closely follows last month’s “Freaking Out,” which also showcased a nostalgic, emotive ambiance. There’s a beautiful music video that accompanies the latest single, which can be found here.


Known for their tantalizing remixes of EDM greats like Illenium and Seven Lions, Crystal Skies have teamed up with Au5 to create an otherworldly collaboration, “Cataclysm.” Packed with ethereal melodies and spacey wubs, the trio deliver their listeners straight to outer space. The song touts hefty bass and heavy drops, satisfying both bass music lovers and those who revel in intricate melodies and outstanding sound design.


NoCopyrightSounds has delivered a soulful drum & bass heater from Showdown as one of their latest releases. IMAN‘s vocals kick off the track in fine fashion, leading the listener directly into a bold combination of brassy horn stabs and a furious drum & bass beat. “Freedom” is a powerful number from start to finish, with each of the track’s components working together to create an authoritative drum & bass atmosphere.


Two new originals from The Midnight in less than a month? Not quite sure what we did to deserve this, but these two synthwave angels have descended once again, this time delivering “America 2.” This subdued retro track is full of hope, with artwork depicting an abandoned ’80s-style mall and a sign that says “permanently closed.” Tyler Lyle’s vocals tell the tale of going to look for “America 2,” backed by the duo’s signature guitar melodies and wavy synths. It’s a gorgeous addition to their discography and an incredible follow-up to last month’s “Lost Boy.”
