When it comes to euphoric, transcendent bass music, Seven Lions has essentially cornered the market. The American producer’s insatiable musical repertoire and stylistic reach (spanning dubstep, trance, electro, and progressive house) is nearly as full-bodied as his languorous head of hair—and that’s saying something.
Most recently, while amid his The Journey 2 Tour, Seven Lions has invited SLANDER and Dabin for a joint release, “First Time,” featuring vocalist, Dylan Matthew, on his very own Ophelia Records. The track encompasses Seven Lions’s overpoweringly euphoric variety of melodic chill-step, with his hallmark stop-and-go synth patches, slapping snares, utopian melodicism.
Similarly, Dabin (a repeat offender on Ophelia) and the SLANDER duo have also been carrying out their own auspicious endeavors. SLANDER just signed on with NGHTMRE, to form their very own label, GUD VIBRATIONS, fashioned from the threesome’s cornerstone collaboration of the same name. Dabin has been dabbling in revitalizing his experiential productions with more live instrumentation, while performing alongside some top-notch electronic talents like Illenium and Said The Sky.
Ladies and Gentleman, the moment that many of you have been waiting for has finally arrived. Talented producers, Seven Lions, SLANDER, and Dabin, have officially released their long-anticipated collaboration “First Time.” Are you ready to take your emotions on a wild feel trip? If your answer is yes, then this is a must-listen. The new
Kygo, the unstoppable tropical house and pop producer, DJ, and songwriter continues to flourish at festivals, all while grabbing listeners by the arm and taking them on an emotional roller coaster.
Now, the producer’s “Stargazing,” has received an emotional music video courtesy of directory Phillip R. Lopez, who previously worked with Kygo on the video for It Ain’t Me.” The video is about a young boy whose father suddenly passes away from what seems to be a heart attack. The boy continues on in life, always remaining hopeful, looking up, and stargazing. The video begins with the boy’s father saying, “If you need me you can always find me in the stars. Love, Dad.” The boy, remembering his father’s words, finds his way to reach his dad by studying the stars and becoming an astronaut.
Norwegian hit-machine Kygo has continued his run of success into 2017 with two monster collaborations: “It Ain’t Me,” with Selena Gomez — which has already gone platinum in the USA — and, more recently, “First Time” with Ellie Goulding, which is well on its way to becoming one of the most popular pop singles of 2017.
With that the sum of new releases from the superstar so far this year, Kygo has just dropped a new set of remixes for “First Time” to keep his fans satiated. The remix EP features two reworked versions of the catchy original, an energetic future bass remix by Dutch producer R3HAB, who has adopted a new found love for the trending genre, and a rather tranquil, melodic rendition by rising electronic music star Gryffin.
