If you’re ever stuck with the question of how to make a fantastic track even better, the answer as of late has been to hand it over to Lane 8 and let him work his musical magic. Already an ethereal and emotive track, Lane 8 pulls at our heartstrings with his moving redux of a tried and true favorite.

[The Audiofiles] Put Down Your Phone and Pick Up The Groove at ‘This Never Happened’

Standard

Have you ever been so lost in the music you could forget where you were? So lost, that you felt the entire venue has been transported into an entirely new plane of existence? So enamored by the moment that you leave your cell phone in your pocket as you dance away your worries? Twenty years ago, before smartphones existed, there was a moment in time where this was the norm – where people bonded over a mutual musical admiration and created new bonds, fast friendships and an unforgettable night to remember. Fast forward to 2016 and you’ll find people Snapchating, Tweeting, Instagraming, Shazaming and even playing Pokemon Go on the dancefloor; whatever happened to being there for the love of music, and passion of truly being part of the community instead of just an observer with a camera phone? Thankfully, one producer has finally had enough – and is bold enough to do something about it.

Still marinating in the awe inspiring success of his inaugural ‘This Never Happened’ event in San Francisco, melodic deep house tastemaker Lane 8 is ready to take his novel concept across North America and into a city near you.

““My team and I were super anxious about whether we could pull an event like this off….We focused on getting the message out – letting people know what our vision is and why we think it’s so important. San Francisco is possibly the most tech-hip city in the US, but not only did 99% of people keep their phones in their pockets the entire night, they also had a noticeably better time at the show. That show reinforced even more what we believe in and that what we’re doing is something that the music community actually wants and needs.” – Daniel Goldstein / Lane 8

 

Presale tickets for ‘This Never Happened’ are on sale on Tuesday, August 2nd while General On-Sale tickets are available starting Friday, August 5th. While you’re (im)patiently waiting to get your paws on a coveted ticket in a major metropolitan area from Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles to Toronto and Washington DC, feast your ears on his latest singles – Divina and Crush, both out now!

[The Audiofiles] Usher In Winter with Lane 8’s Latest Mixtape

Standard

artworks-000138878559-w0lkxn-t500x500

With Los Angeles trapped within it’s version of perpetual Summer, I tend to forget that other seasons exist until we’re thrust into them feet first. Thankfully, I’ve begun to anticipate them thanks to timely mixes from none other than Lane 8, a rising star on Above & Beyond’s Anjunadeep imprint. Now with a host of large festival tour dates like Northern Nights, Spring Awakening, What The Festival and Global Dance Festival – not to mention, with his second album ‘Rise‘ and second North American Tour of the same name under his belt, Lane 8 has perfected his stage presence and ability to feel the crowd, which have both forayed into his exquisitely curated mixtapes.

Over the last year, I’ve found myself drawn to both his moody and brooding downtempo original tracks as well as his magnificent mixes that pull inspiration from each and every pocket of House Music. Deep, Indie, Tech – you name it, he’s mixed it into his wondrous works. Though I’d missed out on attending several of his shows around Southern California, I was delighted to be front and center while he brought the house down at Coachella’s DoLab Stage to watch him turn some of my bass buddies into tried and true Lane 8 believers. Each and every time I dive into a mix, I’m absolutely enthralled and blown away by his musical maturity and his latest Winter 2015 Mixtape is an absolute testament to that fact. Dive right in and see what you think!

[Artist Spotlight] Lane 8 + Russ Chimes

Standard

It’s not often that I’m moved enough to share a favorite artist with the world, but when credit’s due – credit is due; I’ve been digging around through the deepest of house music for the past year and I feel like I’ve finally found my niche in it.  Just a little bit of bass, some soulful lyrics, a killer bridge and a dance-able beat – I’ve found it before so I know that it’s possible.  It’s the music Kaskade was giving us back in 2004 with his artist album ‘In the Moment’ and again with his last US tour, which he dubbed the ‘It’s You, it’s Me Redux.  The Deep House that is doled out nowadays can have a generic beat and at times, it can be hard to tell where a song begins and ends….and doubly so during a deep house set.  I can’t tell you how many times my friends and I have turned to each other and asked ‘Is this still the same song?’  So, when I discovered this latest artist I was beyond stoked.  I’ve been listening to my fair share of Finnebassen, Cyril Hanh and the guys on Crosstown Rebels but the one thing I’ve been craving is original work from a deep house artist.  Both Cyril Hahn and Finnebassen are more more than adept at remixing (or as I love to say, mixing down) oldies and goodies alike, including but not limited to: James Blake’s Retrograde and Jessie Ware’s Sweet Talk.

Over the last few months ‘Perfect Form’ and the B Side have come out – giving Cyril his first singles which were amazing; A+! In the meantime,  I’ve had a golden opportunity to discover two amazing new (at least to me) artists in the scene.  Russ Chimes and Lane 8 have been giving me chills for a few months now – between their adept remixes and ellquently catchy singles, I’m surprised these two haven’t blown up more than they already have! They’ve been dishing out hit after hit recently and it would take a real asshole to not enjoy their sound.  Perfect for a BBQ with friends, weekend getaway or poolside – catchy lyrics, dance-y beats, non-repetitive structures; totally my thing! Nothing like having a diamond in the rough, but I’m the type that loves seeing that lesser known artists start popping up in mixes, live sets and finally into festival lineups in my area.  There’s no sense in talking someone up who can speak for themselves, so without further ado – here’s a few mixes and original singles from Russ Chimes and Lane 8.  I guarantee you’ll be sailing smoothly into your weekend in no time!
