Since the first day of EDC Las Vegas this year, fans have known that Seven Lions, NGHTMRE, SLANDER, and Glitch Mob would be going on the Alchemy Tour together, but only one show was announced at the time. Earlier this week, another show was announced in Seattle, but there was still no clue as to
Seven Lions and Dimibo fans must be over the moon after a special announcement that was made today. We’ve known that Seven Lions has been working on a psytrance project for quite some time, but we didn’t know that this would include another special artist. It was confirmed earlier today that Seven Lions and Dimibo

The Alchemy Tour will go down as one of the biggest electronic tours of the year, as NGHTMRE, SLANDER, The Glitch Mob, and Seven Lions hit the road together for a 19-stop road trip across the US this fall. The new Live Nation-produced tour will feature NGHTMRE and SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations show, along with additional support from the See Without Eyes trio and melodic bass guru Seven Lions, making for a powerhouse billing that includes some of dance music’s hottest talents of the moment.
The Alchemy Tour has planned stops in Phoenix, San Francisco, Austin, Charlotte, and more, running from September through mid-October. Tickets go on sale on June 20 here.
For the name Crystal Skies, Britain Holcomb and Aaron Dawson could not be more down to Earth guys. Whether its playing League of Legends against MitiS for fans online or playing the Ophelia stage at EZOO these guys are as cool as the other side of the pillow. The two extraordinarily talented producers are finally

After releasing his blue! EP via the label earlier this year, Brock Wilson returns to Mad Zoo to reveal a new single: “Moment of Clarity.” This track shows the full breadth of Wilson’s skill set, as he moves fluidly between smooth, ambient sections and choppier segments. The middle passage of “Moment of Clarity” features the artist’s own vocals over a bed of minimalist percussion, ebbing and flowing until it returns to a calming outro.
Earlier this week, the music world was blessed with a slew of remixes of Seven Lions, Wooli and Trivecta‘s “Island,” featuring takes from Sullivan King, TYNAN, and many more. Among these is a celestial reinvention from Au5. He’s created a meticulously pieced together version of the song, adding his signature melodic dubstep elements and a heavy helping of bass to craft an adaptation that’s all his own.
Over the years, Canadian duo Eminence have tried their hand at a number of genres, garnering fans worldwide through EPs and singles on Monstercat. In their latest effort, they’ve taken on Vicetone‘s February track “Home,” a slightly wistful piece that still maintained an upbeat atmosphere. Eminence, however, lean into the melancholic elements of Vicetone’s original to create a house remix that’s more understated and alluring.
In his latest tune, Anakim has opted to remix LUNR’s “Shadows.” The LA-based artist has constructed an even darker take on LUNR’s original, tapping into the shadowy elements of Max Comeau’s vocals and sprinkling in ominous synth undertones. At seven minutes long, Anakim’s rendition is a truly eerie but satisfying sonic journey. “I don’t do remixes often, but this one I just couldn’t say no to,” the artist told Groove Cartel.
Just days after announcing a nine-stop US tour, Hannah Wants has unveiled a new single on her Etiquette label, “Love Somebody.” The tech house tune, released in original mix and extended mix formats, consists of retro vocals over an irresistibly infectious beat. This one’s primed for a dance floor and practically begs listeners to keep their feet moving into the wee hours of the morning.
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.

Seven Lions and Crystal Skies have pooled their genius level production skills together on Sojourn. For years I have been trying to spill the beans on how good the duo of Crystal Skies is. Years before that I had a front row ticket on the Seven Lions hype train. This has been a long time

It’s been a few years since Seven Lions and Kill The Noise have gotten together for a collaboration, but they’ve brought that lull to an end with the release of “The Blood” on Seven Lions’ Ophelia Records.
Inspired by their favorite video game, “Bloodborne,” the duo have created a genre-bending amalgamation of psy-trance and dubstep, furiously pounding out everything from delicate piano melodies to intense seas of heavy bass. The racing BPM of the psy-trance segments crash dramatically into waves of churning dubstep, appropriately showing off just what these two lauded producers are capable of when they put their minds together.
They last teamed up on “Cold Hearted,” which was released via Monstercat in late 2017. The track twisted Seven Lions’ melodic tendencies with Kill The Noise’s heavy ones, thrilling fans of both artists. Both their old and new collaborations showcase the power of a melody—and the endless opportunities of what can be built around it.
It’s been more than five years since the music world has seen new music from Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s supergroup, Dog Blood, but that wait is finally over with “Turn Off The Lights.” Dillon Francis joins forces with lovelytheband for a, well, lovely collaboration called “Change Your Mind.” Armin van Buuren, Lucas & Steve, and Josh Cumbee deliver a feel-good number by the name of “Don’t Give Up On Me,” and Nicky Romero, DallasK, and XYLØ create a contemplative, low-key collaboration, “Sometimes.” Whethan and Bearson have crafted an effortlessly groovy “Win You Over” with SOAK, and Seven Lions and Kill The Noise take things up a notch with the formidable “The Blood.” Bassnectar reveals his Reflective Part Four EP is on its way with “Illusion,” and Kove keeps his brand of drum & bass subtle and smooth with “Echoes.” Jai Wolf and Dresage come together in “Better Apart,” and NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg make a powerful pair in “REDLIGHT.” Sam Feldt brings summer a few months early with “One Day” with ROZES and Yves V, and Zomboy brings “The Beast” with his new single. The Chainsmokers prep for their new album with “Kills You Slowly,” and Mielo releases his Anywhere But Here EP, featuring a closing song of the same title.
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.
